The tested model of Mitsubishi was introduced in Australia during 2004. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.
Dual front airbags, electronic stability control and ABS brakes are standard on all variants. Side (thorax) airbags are standard on the tested variant (Exceed) and optional on other variants. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.
