2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Earns TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS

  • 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Slider

The new Outlander is powerful, tech-savvy, and most importantly, safe.

When car shoppers ask the staff here at our Sioux Falls dealership if the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is a safe car we don’t have to think too hard about our answer. While all of the Mitsubishi SUV models are reliable family vehicles, the newly redesigned Outlander has been receiving enthusiastic reviews from the likes of auto experts from Edmunds to Kelley Blue Book, and now the 2022 Outlander can add a prestigious IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ to its list of accolades.

Outlander Awarded Highest Safety Rating by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)

Needless to say, it’s been a very big year for the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander. The three-row SUV received a full redesign with a sophisticated exterior, luxurious cabin materials, and more advanced safety features than ever before. Its standard drive mode selector (which includes gravel and snow settings) and available Super All-Wheel Control make Outlander one of the most sure-footed vehicles on South Dakota roadways today.

While the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has been recognized for its many safety features, it was the automaker’s adjustment to the SUV’s headlight aiming that sealed the deal for a TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In fact, current Siouxland owners who purchased their Outlander before June 2021 can bring their SUV into Vern Eide Mitsubishi and our service department will make this headlight adjustment free of charge. If this prestigious safety award is any indication, we expect the 2022 model year to bring about even more accolades and awards for this Mitsubishi SUV model.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Safety Features

The other basis for the 2022 Outlander being awarded a TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS was it being equipped with a front-crash prevention system that has met specific criteria. Along with the Forward Collision Mitigation system, even at the ES base trim level, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander comes standard with the following safety features:

  • Forward Collision Mitigation
  • Blind Spot Warning (BSW)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
  • Rear Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Trailer Stability Assist (TSA)
  • Electronic parking brake with auto hold
  • Active Stability Control (ASC)
  • Hill Start Assist (HSA)

Additionally, Mitsubishi chose to debut its MI-Pilot Assist feature on the 2022 Outlander, a driver-assist technology that enhances the functionality of both Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA).
