Mitsubishi is one of the top names in the industry when it comes to safety, due in large part to the brand’s many state-of-the-art safety technologies. In addition to advanced airbags and intelligent engineering, the Mitsubishi lineup comes with several innovative features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Stability Control, and more. If you’re looking for optimal safety and a reliable ride, consider the many new vehicles in the Mitsubishi lineup.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
The ACC system combines radar and camera technology to monitor the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Like traditional cruise control, ACC will keep you at a consistent speed; however, this technology will also slow your car if the person in front of you reduces their speed. Maintaining speed and a safe following distance, ACC is both convenient as well as incredibly safe.
Automatic High Beams (AHB)
Helping you to avoid potential accidents, AHB can detect vehicles in front of you and automatically switch off your high beams. Standard on the Eclipse Cross and the outlander Sport, AHB is great for those that commonly drive at night, especially on country roads.
Blind Spot Warning
Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist will monitor the areas around your vehicle where it’s difficult to see. Sending you alerts if a car is in your blind spot as you try to change lanes, this system comes standard on every Mitsubishi model except the Mirage and Mirage G4.
Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM)
The FCM system combines laser radar and cameras to detect if a front-end collision is about to occur. When such collisions are imminent, the system will send you visual and audible alerts, and it can even apply the brakes to reduce (and potentially prevent) any damage caused by an accident.
Multi-View Camera System
There are also several cameras offered on Mitsubishi models, available through features such as the multi-view camera system. You can generate a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings using this technology, which helps you to navigate tight parking spots as well as parallel park.
Mitsubishi takes the safety of every driver on the road very seriously, and it shows in the advanced suite of accident-mitigation system it packs into its vehicles. If you want to see any of the brand’s well-equipped cars for yourself, take a quick trip to Interstate Mitsubishi and have a look around.
