Mitsubishi has packed the new Lancer Evolution with a host of safety features. It is built around Mitsubishi's next-generation Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) unibody design that enhances occupant protection and also helps to protect the fuel system by dispersing energy loads during side and rear crashes and controls distortion. An advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, standard front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags, plus a driver's knee air bag are among its standard safety features. The standard anti-lock braking system (Sports ABS) integrates electronic brake-force distribution (EBD).
