Accidents happen. Mitsubishi knows that sometimes the road throws an unexpected surprise in your path, so Pajero/Montero is outfitted with an array of advanced active and passive safety technologies. Enjoy your drive with the peace of mind of knowing that you and your passengers are safe and secure.


The strength of Pajero/Montero ladder frame has been nearly tripled over previous designs, providing even better resistance to torsional and flexural stresses without any further increase in weight. This rigidity translates to better handling and comfort over difficult road conditions and lower chance of control loss.


ASTC utilizes a network of control units and intelligent sensors to monitor vehicle status as well as the driver’s steering. As road and vehicle conditions change, ASTC manages the forces on all wheels by precisely controlling engine torque and braking force going to each one, providing improved vehicle control, trace ability and traction in all driving conditions. ASTC lets driving enthusiasts enjoy the full potential of Pajero/Montero in complete confidence.

ASTC calculates real-time vehicle status via sensor data. Whenever the potential for oversteer or understeer in corners is detected, ASTC determines the correct yaw for Pajero/Montero and applies braking force to the appropriate wheels. This enables drivers to maintain control even in slippery road conditions.

Note: The control capabilities of ASTC are supplemental only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these functions while driving. Be sure to use the same specified type and size of tires on all 4 wheels. Do not install any aftermarket limited slip differential on your vehicle. Please see the owner’s manual for additional information.

Multi-mode ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)
When the road throws you an unexpected curve, ABS ensures that you’ll be ready. The 4-sensor, 4-channel system is matched to each SS4 II mode to ensure skid-free braking regardless of surface conditions.

Note: ABS can help a driver prevent unsafe situations while braking, but is never a substitute for safe driving. ABS does not always reduce stopping distances. Stopping distance can be influenced by many factors including road surface conditions and friction between the tires and the road surface.

EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution)
EBD modulates each braking channel independently, providing additional force to the rear wheels when the vehicle is carrying passengers or cargo. This ensures you are able to come to a stop quickly and safely, regardless of load or road conditions.

Dual-stage SRS Airbag System, Side and Curtain SRS Airbags (optional)
In the event of a forward collision, the driver and front passenger are both protected by front SRS airbags. To further increase safety, the onboard computer measures the force of impact and adjusts airbag deployment speed to best reduce the chance of injury to occupants. For side collisions, the driver and front passenger are protected by side mounted airbags set to deploy at just the right position regardless of seat position. Furthermore, curtain airbags mounted in the ceiling lining deploy to protect front and 2nd-row occupants.

Note: Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seat belt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat. Please see the owner’s manual and the instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.

Automatic High Beam System (optional)
This in-vehicle camera sensor continuously monitors headlamps and tail lights of oncoming and preceding vehicles. If a nearing vehicle is detected by the camera sensor, the Automatic High Beam system automatically switches to low beam. Once there are no oncoming or preceding vehicles with headlamps or tail lights turned on in close proximity, the system immediately reverts back to high beam. Without the need for manual operation, driving is even more safe and comfortable.

Premium Security Alarm System (optional)
This theft protection system has been improved from earlier models. It is equipped with sensors to detect inclination and intrusions. In addition, the built-in battery power back-up activates an alarm when the battery wire is detached to prevent illegal access.

LED daytime running lamp with position lamp (optional)
Beyond enhancing safety by increase visibility when driving during the daytime, the LED daytime running lamps add a touch of style for good measure.

Using front and rear crumple zones to absorb and diffuse collision damage before it can reach the cabin interior, Pajero/Montero’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body design is built to minimize occupant injury regardless of which direction trouble comes from. The rigid monocoque body provides further protection by encasing occupants within a steel framework that resists damage.

Safety-design Fuel Tank
Positioned ahead of the rear axle to help prevent leakage in a collision, Pajero/Montero’s fuel tank is also guarded by a tough resin underprotector.

Note: Equipment may vary by market. Please consult your local Mitsubishi Motors dealer/distributor for details.
