We all want safe vehicles, and we shouldn’t settle for less. Mitsubishi doesn’t sacrifice safety for anything, which is why the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently recognized the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander’s safety with a Top Safety Pick accolade.

The Outlander achieved the top “good” rating in all crash tests, a “superior” for its optional front crash prevention technology, and “acceptable” rating for its available headlights. Don’t let the acceptable headlight rating fool you: The IIHS started rating headlights in 2016 with infamously strict guidelines, so an “acceptable” in headlights amounts to great quality.

“Earning the IIHS Top Safety Pick is a key reason for customers to place the Outlander at the top of their shopping list, proving it one of the most competitive vehicles in the incredibly popular compact SUV segment” said Mark Chaffin, chief operating officer for Mitsubishi Motors North America.

The Outlander utilizes Mitsubishi’s RISE body structure, which strategically places crumple zones and a high tensile strength steel cage to mitigate the damage in a collision and direct it away from the cabin and any passengers.

All Outlander models come standard with numerous safety features including a rearview camera, seven airbags, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Active Stability Control with Traction Control Logic, Hill Start Assist, and an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

When you need to transport a lot of people, you need a big vehicle. And, larger vehicles almost always cost more than their smaller counterparts. But, you don’t have to break the bank to get the right-sized vehicle. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was recently ranked number one in Cars.com’s list of the Most Affordable 3-Row Crossovers.

“We designed the 2016 Outlander to be an unmatched value in its segment, so it’s no surprise to us that it leads the way on the Cars.com list of most affordable 3-row crossovers,” said Don Swearingen, MMNA Executive Vice President. Swearingen goes on to say, “from its long list of features, to available advanced safety technologies and a new eye-catching design, the seven-passenger Outlander is a leader in value and reliability.”

The 2016 Outlander has a starting price of only $22,995. And, even if you bump up to the well-equipped SEL trim, it still only starts at $24,995. The new Outlander features over 100 engineering and design improvements over the previous model year, including its new stellar front end design.

When putting together its list of crossovers, Cars.com considered more than just price. It also weighed five years of fuel costs and the car’s residual value after five years. And, to be considered for the list, a vehicle has to come equipped with an automatic transmission, power driver’s seat, rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port.

The 2016 Outlander SEL has all of these features and more. And, making it even more of a value is the fact that it is backed by an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

If you are looking for a 3-row crossover that will still leave money in your pocket, then come take a look at the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander available today at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
