What’s The Best Mitsubishi For Safety?

Mitsubishi is known for its stylish, yet practical vehicles. Vern Eide Mitsubishi understands the importance of finding the right vehicle for drivers who value safety above all else, along with comfort, technology, fuel economy, and affordability. While all Mitsus are loaded with safety features and come with a great warranty, which provides peace of mind and reliability, a few Mitsu models stand out beyond the rest when it comes to safety.


Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

If you like the idea of an SUV but want the comfort and handling of a smaller vehicle, your best bet is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. A crossover SUV, the Mitsu Eclipse Cross is loaded with safety features and comes with a 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA.gov. Whether you’re looking to buy new or used, you can’t beat the Eclipse Cross’s safety features. This is a crossover large enough to take on road trips, small enough to maneuver through traffic on city streets and wide open roads.

What Safety Features Should Drivers Should Look For In A Vehicle

When buying a new vehicle, there are a few key safety innovations you want to look for in a vehicle. Vern Eide Mitsu walks you through how to choose a vehicle based on safety, to help you narrow down your search.

Safety Rating

Drivers who prioritize safety when looking for a new vehicle should consult the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration ratings. This government organization tests vehicles annually to determine their crash-worthiness and impact on passengers when in an accident. A five-star rating is the highest, and Mitsu Eclipse Cross and the Mitsu Outlander earned five stars.

Standard Safety Features

Mitsubishi places a premium on safety features and goes the extra mile to ensure its vehicles are as safe as possible. With Anti-Lock Brakes, Active Stability Control, Lane Departure Warning, and more as standard equipment on all vehicles, you know that your Mitsu will keep you safe no matter where the road takes you.

Safety Innovation

Mitsubishi Motors has made numerous breakthroughs on safety innovation. The MI-PILOT driver assistance system, available on select Mitsu Models (including the Outlander PHEV), uses camera and radar technology to ensure that Mitsu owners stay in their lane, and at a safe distance from other vehicles. If this type of innovation is coming from Mitsu, you know they take your safety seriously.


Vehicles loaded with features are great, but what happens when they aren’t brand new anymore? Some vehicles may have more features, but Mitsubishi’s 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty is one of the best in the industry. It’s in Mitsubishi’s best interest to make sure your Mitsu is built to last, and that includes safety features.

Mitsu’s Standard Safety Features

New Mitsubishi vehicles come with the latest safety features and packages, providing you with a vehicle that’s reliable, secure, and adaptable. Some of Mitsubishi’s Safety Features Include:

  • Rear automatic emergency braking
  • Active blind spot assist
