After decades of pushing vehicles to their logical limits on the world rally circuit, our engineers have learned a thing or two about what it takes to keep drivers safe in the most critical of situations. These lessons, combined with a long history of research and development, informed the design of the Mirage, which features a full complement of active and passive safety systems.
- Seven-Airbag Safety System
In some ways, it's the most beautiful part of the interior. Mitsubishi's seven-airbag system includes dual advanced front airbags, front side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag.² A recent innovation, the driver's knee airbag helps to reduce the risk of injury by stabilizing the legs and lower body of the driver during certain types of impact. It's quite advanced. And merely one of the seven airbags that make up this sophisticated safety system.
- Anti-Lock Braking System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
The Mirage's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)³ is a study in technology. ABS helps eliminate wheel lock-up by monitoring the speed of each individual wheel, then adjusting the braking pressure as needed. When impending lock-up is sensed, ABS sends rapid brake pulses to the wheels in need, dramatically reducing the chance of a skid on any terrain.
- Active Stability Control
Yet another standard safety feature, Active Stability Control (ASC)³ employs a series of sensors that constantly monitor tire grip on the road. Should the wheels begin to slip, the ASC system works in concert with the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) to apply the brakes intelligently as needed to each wheel, giving you the ultimate sense of control.
- RISE Body Construction
The RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction greatly enhances passenger protection. In the event of a collision, efficient energy absorption and high cabin integrity are important. RISE achieves these features and enhances its collision safety performance for front, side and rear impact collisions.
- LATCH System
The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system simplifies the attachment of child safety seats, making it easier for you to help keep your child safe.
- Seat Belts and Pretensioners
Every Mitsubishi is equipped with three-point seat belts and head restraints, along with front seat belt pretensioners that are designed to help tighten the belts in certain frontal impacts and rollovers so the seat belts can better do their job. Seat belt force limiters, which help the front seat belts and airbags² work together optimally, are also standard on every Mirage.
