SAFETY AND RELIABILITYThe unexpected. You can't predict it, but you can be prepared for it. Because surprises can come in any form, Lancer EX includes an array of active and passive safety features to protect all occupants from harm. 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.
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.
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.
Flexibility may be an asset drivers, but car bodies need to be rigid and unchanging. The Lancer EX body has been reinforced at key points to resist torsion to keep everything smoothly on track when rounding curves or navigating the occasional bumpy road.
As much as you love to take charge, the one thing you can't control is the other driver. Fortunately, Lancer features dual SRS front airbags so that both of you and your passenger can have peace of mind to enjoy the journey.
Seatbelts With Pretensioners And Force-Limiters
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.
