Keeping your family out of harm’s way is every parent’s priority. You will have help when you choose the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander. The SUV maintains traction and stability with active stability control and traction control logic. Disc brakes are part of a four-wheel, four-channel anti-lock brake system. Brake-force distribution helps ensure proper wheelspin. Brake Assist adds more help for emergency braking. Crash protection standards include seven airbags, pretensioned seatbelts, LATCH attachments, and RISE body construction. Hill Start Assist protects your brakes and gears when you make a cold start going uphill.
The upper trims offer a lane departure warning, a blind spot warning, and a lane change assist. These systems help you prevent common side swipe crash scenarios. You can also get adaptive cruise control and forward collision mitigation. With these in play, you are less likely to cause a rear end accident. The collision warning may be enough to reduce danger, but if a driver doesn’t respond fast enough, automatic braking may intervene. Adaptive cruise control regulates speed and slows automatically if brake lights are detected in the leader traffic.
The Outlander also promotes safety with a number of smart exterior features. Three models have strong halogen headlights while the top model adds LEDs. All of these are auto on-off lamps, making it less likely you will run down the battery accidentally. All positioning lights and taillights are long-lasting, bright LEDs.
