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 Outlander Sport. In it, you'll find a full complement of world-class active and passive safety systems.

- Seven-Airbag 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-impact air curtains and a driver's knee airbag. 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.
- Active Stability Control
Yet another standard safety feature, Active Stability Control (ASC)† 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.
- All-Wheel Control
Mitsubishi's electrically controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) system engages an onboard computer that monitors throttle, vehicle speed and road condition—and makes split-second adjustments to help maximize control in any weather. Plus you can switch between 2WD, 4WD, and LOCK drive modes while on the go.
- Electric Power Steering
Technology is in your corner. Electric Power Steering (EPS) makes handling easier by using sophisticated electronics that provide the appropriate amount of power steering assistance, depending on your speed.
- Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Override Feature
The Outlander Sport's Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) 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.
- 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 airbags* work together optimally, are also standard on every Outlander Sport.
