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.

Euro NCAP | Mitsubishi ASX | 2011 | ESC test
Euro NCAP carried out "sine-with-dwell" tests according to the ESC GTR global technical regulation, which is based on the US regulation FMVSS126. For cars that allowed the ESC system to be switched off, tests were carried out with ESC ON and OFF. Cars were tested by undergoing multiple runs, sometimes as much as 60 per car, each time increasing the steering angle and input. The clip shows the 'first ESC off test' where the car span out. The 'ESC on test' is the one with the same steering input.

The Mitsubishi ASX is one of a growing number of SUV-inspired family cars that have been introduced to compete against conventional hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf.
