Outlander PHEV Safety

We’re committed to creating cars you love, and keep you and your loved ones safe on your journey. From intelligent sensors throughout, to a protective body cell, the OutlanderPHEV delivers all around safety.

Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC)

Helping you keep a safe distance

Maintains a selected distance between your vehicle and the car ahead via radar for greater safety and peace of mind. 

Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM)

Safer in the event of a collision

Helps prevent a frontal collision or reduce damage if the collision becomes unavoidable. Responds to vehicles and pedestrians via camera and laser radar.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

The car will tell you if you drift

This smart feature will create a beep and display a warning on the dash if your vehicle has drifted from its lane and you're not using your indicators.

Automatic High Beam (AHB)

Adjusts the beam for you

To increase safety, comfort and driving ease at night, the high beams automatically switch to low beams when vehicles are detected ahead and automatically switch back to high beams so you don't have to remove your hand from the steering wheel to switch the beams manually.

Blind Spot Warning (BSW)

Say goodbye to blind spots

This excellent safety feature uses radar sensors in the rear bumper to detect vehicles in your rear blind spots, on the right and left sides. An indicator appears in the door mirror when BSW is active and the turn signals are off. When a vehicle is detected while the turn signal is on, an indicator blinks in the corresponding door mirror and a buzzer sounds.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Reverse with confidence

An indicator appears in the combination meter display when RCTA is active. If radar sensors in the rear bumper detect an approaching vehicle nearby while reverse gear is engaged, a warning message appears in the multi-information display, a buzzer sounds and an indicator blinks in both door mirrors.

Multi Around Monitor

Parking made easy

The views from cameras mounted on the front, rear and sides of the Outlander PHEV (including a bird's-eye view) can be displayed in various combinations to reveal what is in blind spots and help you park more safely.

Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS)

No more sudden movement

To help prevent collisions while parking, a buzzer sounds and a warning displays if the front or rear sensors detect a nearby obstacle. Acceleration is also controlled if you suddenly put your foot down by accident.

RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) Body

A cabin with a protective shell

The Outlander PHEV is built using our advanced Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body. It strategically places reinforcements at critical points to help route and absorb energy in the event of a high impact collision. Collision safety performance is significantly enhanced keeping you and your passengers safer.
