The Outlander Sport has standard active front headrests, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the active front headrests system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Envision doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests front crash prevention systems. With a score of 6 points, IIHS rates the Forward Collision Mitigation optional in the Outlander Sport as “Superior.” The Envision scores at most only 4 points and is rated only “Advanced.”

Both the Outlander Sport and the Envision have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, front and rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.
