This rating is based on an ANCAP offset crash test of a Mitsubishi Triton utility in 2006. The Challenger is derived from the Triton and ANCAP was provided with evidence that the Challenger provides comparable occupant protection to that of the Triton in the offset crash test. The rating applies to all variants of the Challenger.

The tested vehicle scored 9.08 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Pre-tensioners and force limiters are fitted to the front seat belts.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 9.08 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 1.87 pts
Upper Legs 0.99 pts
Lower Legs 2.22 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 74mm and downwards 3mm. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 16mm, upwards 49mm and sideways 8mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 53mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

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 Challenger. 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.

ANCAP did not conduct a pole impact test because the offset test score was less than 12.5, the minimum needed for a 5-star rating and associated pole test.

1-Star Pedestrian Rating

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).
