Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a score of 77, implying a 0.046% chance of driver death (4.1% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0456% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.2063%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0456% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.2063% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is 2% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is 12% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport include: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
