2011 Mitsubishi ASX / RVR / Outlander Sport EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)
The passenger compartment of the ASX remained stable in the frontal impact with only slight rearward deformation of the windscreen pillar. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both front seat occupants. Mitsubishi showed that occupants of different sizes and those sat in different positions would be similarly well protected. Protection of the driver's feet and ankles was rated as marginal. Maximum points were scored in the side barrier impact, with good protection of all body areas. However, in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest area was weak. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision was rated as marginal.
In the frontal impact, the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint, was well controlled. In the side barrier test, both the 3 year and the 18month dummies were properly contained by the protective shells of their restraints. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear. The dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in that seating position without first disabling the airbag are clearly explained in a permanently attached label.
Mitsubishi ASX test
Het is een sterk bevochten segment waarin nu ook Mitsubishi met een
Cross-over is gekomen. Ieder zichzelf respecterend merk heeft in navolging
van trendsetter Nissan (met de Qashqai) nu wel zo'n model in de markt
gezet. Hoe weet Mitsubishi zich met deze Active Smart X-over van de rest te
onderscheiden? Autoplus ging het voor u uitzoeken door 'm uitgebreid aan de
tand te voelen!

Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult

driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 miles per hour (mph), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.
