Euro NCAP has released the result of its latest crash test campaign where Mitsubishi Motors’ all-new Mirage was featured. Overall, Mirage achieved just 4-star rating (2013 protocol): Adult Occupant 90%, Child Occupant 72%, Pedestrian: 73%, Safety Assist: 55%.

As a reminder, Mirage’s “Global Small” architecture has been engineered to offer a high level of safety – both active and passive – within its compact dimensions, with a host of built-in safety features.

Complying with the times, Mirage is built around a high-efficiency architecture which proves to be both lightweight yet strong and safe, with a good level of safety within its compact dimensions and similar to cars of a similar size. 

Starting point was Mitsubishi Motors’ patented “RISE” (“Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution”) active structure, meant to efficiently absorb an impact from all directions and to disperse it. Improving on it for Mirage, Mitsubishi R&D added straight and large section front cross-members, so called “Multi-load pass frame”. 

Together with a reinforced cabin, they contribute to better energy management in case of a front crash. In the area of pedestrian safety, Mirage does obviously comply with the new EU regulations enforced from 2013. Mirage front seats offer themselves a high safety level with double pre-tensioner (retractor and lap outer) + force limiter seatbelts as well as a built-inwhiplash injury reduction design.
