2011 Mitsubishi ASX / RVR / Outlander Sport EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)

Adult occupant 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. Child occupant 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.

Road Test: 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

IIHS - 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport /ASX/ small overlap crash test / ACCEPTABLE EVALUATION /
SMALL OVERLAP FRONT TEST: http://www.iihs.org/ratings/frontal_test_info.html OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable Test details: The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was introduced in the 2011 model year. Structure — The driver space was maintained reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 15 cm, and the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel intruded 11-13 cm. Restraints/dummy kinematics — The dummy's head contacted the frontal airbag but slid off the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. The side curtain airbag deployed but does not have sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with forward side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed. Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Additional features: Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags Rollover sensor: designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of an impending rollover Driver knee airbag: a separate airbag in the lower instrument panel designed to minimize knee injuries in frontal crashes Electronic stability control Antilock brakes Tested vehicle specifications: 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE 4wd Class: Small SUV Weight: 3,287 lbs. Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags Wheelbase: 105 in. Length: 169 in. Width: 70 in.
