While we are talking about Insurance Institute of Highway Safety top picks for 2016, let’s loo at the Mitsubishi Outlander. This small SUV received the award too. The only vehicles that can receive this award are those that get top ratings in all crash test areas including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, roof strength, head rests and seats, and side collision.

When it comes to front crash prevention and various safety options available for upgrade in the Mitsubishi Outlander, it received an advanced rating. In other words, it may not be quite as good as the superior vehicles, but it does have plenty to offer. That’s why this small SUV is considered one of the safest available on the road today.
