Used Car Safety Report

The Mitsubishi Express has been awarded a 2 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Mitsubishi Express also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

The tested model of Mitsubishi Express van was introduced in Australia during 2003.

The Mitsubishi Express scored 1.34 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment was severely deformed, particularly in the footwell area. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. Head and chest protection was weak.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score meant that the vehicle was limited to a 1 star rating and an overall score of 8.49 (the maximum available for a 1 star rating).

The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well in the offset crash test. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 491mm. The brake pedal moved upwards 371mm. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 100mm, upwards 265mm and sideways 25mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 301mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash, tools were required to open the door on both sides and dummy extrication was extremely difficult. Steering column components were a potential source of additional injury for the driver's legs.

Side Impact Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Express. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points.
