In a world where safety is a key element for the purchase of a new SUV, the 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander stands tall, earning the coveted 2023 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) award. Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. proudly announced this accolade, cementing the Outlander’s status as a leading family-friendly SUV with an unwavering commitment to safety.
For families on the hunt for the ideal vehicle, safety ratings are non-negotiable, and the 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander delivers. Mark Chaffin, CEO of MMNA, underscored this commitment, stating, “Our commitment to customer safety is paramount, and it’s great to be recognized by a respected organization like IIHS for the work put in by our engineering teams to maximize safety performance in our best-equipped, most-advanced SUV.”
The 2024 Outlander leaves no stone unturned when it comes to safety. Featuring seven-passenger seating, a suite of cutting-edge safety features, and the most sophisticated Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system ever offered by Mitsubishi, it’s clear that the Outlander was designed with families in mind.
The IIHS TSP designation is a testament to the 2024 Outlander’s excellence. It earned “Good” ratings in IIHS’s updated evaluation for side crashworthiness, standard-equipped headlights, driver-side small overlap frontal, passenger-side small overlap frontal, and the original moderate-overlap frontal crash tests. Furthermore, the Outlander achieved a “Superior” rating for its forward collision-mitigation system’s vehicle-to-pedestrian daytime performance.
The accolade isn’t just limited to the 2024 model. The Outlander Plug-in Hybrid, already a 2023 IIHS TSP winner, is expected to maintain its esteemed rating for the 2024 model year. This consistency assures buyers that Mitsubishi is committed to providing safe and reliable options for families.
