SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal, side, and rear; 'good,' roof strength; 'acceptable,' small overlap frontal Top Safety Pick+

Four stars overall; four stars, frontal; four stars, side impact

The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is one of the better performers in this class—and among other vehicles its size and weight it has one of the top ratings in the tough new Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small overlap frontal test.

Safety ratings for the Outlander Sport have otherwise been good, and it has all the features you'd expect in a vehicle that works for small families; a backup camera system is still sorely lacking on the base ES, but front knee airbags are included as an addition to the expected safety set for this kind of vehicle. While it's achieved Top Safety Pick+status overall from the IIHS, its federal scores aren't quite as good, with a four-star overall rating and four-star results for frontal and side impact.

With stability control, anti-lock brakes, and side and side-curtain bags all standard, as well as front knee bags, the Outlander Sport has all the now-requisite items, along with a little more. And we've noticed that, considering the rather thick rear pillar, the elevated seating position in the Outlander Sport offers pretty good outward visibility, although some moms might want to note the omission of a backup camera system from the base ES model; that's now included in the upmarket Outlander Sport SE though.


The 2014 Outlander Sport is one crossover for which affordability and frugality don't get in the way of safety.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
