"Disparities like this one are why we chose to formally rate the passenger side in the small overlap test after five years of evaluating only the driver side", said Becky Mueller, a senior research engineer at the Institute. "While the IIHS test results for this small overlap crash test are now being reviewed, we believe it is important to point out that all of the driver and passenger injury measures for the Outlander Sport in this test were rated 'good.' Only three of the vehicles reviewed in this test can make this claim", he said. These tests focused on how well passengers are protected in a crash. The not-for-profit research group, which works to cut insurers' losses from vehicle accidents, deemed the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport as "marginal" and the Ford Escape as "poor".
The side curtain airbags in the Ford and the Mitsubishi did not deploy during the crash tests, a factor that likely contributed to these vehicles' poor performance.
During the Escape's last design refresh Ford reinforced the driver's side of the platform to improve crash results. "While the IIHS test results for this small overlap crash test are now being reviewed, we believe it is important to point out that all of the Driver and Passenger injury measures for the Outlander Sport in this test were rated 'good.' Only three of the vehicles reviewed in this test can make this claim".

"That's not something we expect to see after so many years of crash-testing", Mueller said.
None of the newly rated 2018 models earns better than acceptable marks for structure. The Escape earned an acceptable rating, one below good, in the driver-side small overlap test. "The side curtain airbags should have deployed in these crashes". With such a failure, the passenger would be vulnerable to contact with the side structure and outside objects in a small overlap front crash.
Both small overlap tests involve crashing a vehicle crash into a barrier at 40 miles per hour with just 25 percent of the front end overlapping the barrier, simulating a crash in which the front corner of a vehicle takes the impact. Instead of just a driver dummy, a passenger dummy also is seated in front.
The Institute has used that process, known as test verification, to assign other types of ratings under certain circumstances.
