The list comes just in time for winter with snow in the forecast. The Outlander debuted this year, and the website put the SUV at No. 1 thanks to its score in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s crash tests.
Mitsubishi SUVs are known for their safety. The new Outlander comes with Super All Weather Control. S-AWC is Mitsubish’s All Wheel Drive, and the vehicle helps you make the right decision on the road. Snow is one of four modes offered in Mitsubishi’s Super All Weather Control. Use the Snow mode in snowy conditions — it handles great in wintry, ice conditions, or loose terrain. Also for inclement weather, choose Lock mode which provides extra 4 Wheel Drive performance, also great for off road and low gear sticky conditions.
The Outlander also was voted an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, one of only three vehicle to earn this designation. (One of the other three was the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport). The Outlander received a perfect score in the IIHS Test, earning top scores of good in moderate overlap front tests, small overlap front tests, side impact tests, roof strength and the all the new small overlap front tests.
Major competition, such as the Toyota Rav4, struggled in this IIHS Test.
