2017 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer EX Safety and Reliability

Powerful anti-lock brakes and brake-force distribution enable drivers to avoid hazards in the road, while the RISE body works to absorb collision damage and direct it away from the interior.
2017 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer EX 7-Airbag System
To help keep occupants in every seat safe in the event of a collision, Lancer EX is available with a new 7-airbag system to provide increased safety from all sides. Curtain airbags extending along both sides reduce damage to front and 2nd-row occupants in a side collision, while the 1st-row occupants also have front and side airbags. For further safety, a driver’s knee airbag helps reduce damage to the legs in a forward collision.Note: Equipment may vary from the image shown.
2017 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer EX RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) Body
Lancer EX’s safety-consciousness starts at the very beginning, with the construction of the RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body. This design protects occupants by employing extensive front and rear crumple zones to absorb impact energy before it can be transferred to the cabin. The cabin and doors, meanwhile, have been constructed with a highly rigid frame and reinforced beams to redirect energy and damage around and away from the occupants.
2017 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer EX Seatbelts
The driver’s and front passenger’s seatbelts are available with pretensioners that reel in to secure the occupant in the initial moments of a collision, and force-limiters that gently release the occupant to reduce the risk of injury.
2017 2018 Mitsubishi Lancer EX ABS with EBD
When a sudden surprise is dropped in your path, Lancer EX’s ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) gives you the ability to maneuver safely around obstacles as you slow down. The EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) assists by applying additional force to the rear brakes as needed, enabling quicker stops even when carrying passengers.
