Mitsubishi seeking a balance between environmental and everyday practical performance


Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and its European unit Mitsubishi Motors Europe B.V. is set to unveil the Mitsubishi Concept-cX crossover vehicle at the 62nd Internationale Automobil Ausstellung (IAA; commonly known as the Frankfurt Motor Show) in September 15 - 23. The show will be held at the Frankfurt Messe Complex.

The new concept is a new-generation compact SUV which seeks to balance environmental and everyday practical performance.

The car will have a 1.8-liter clean diesel engine, featuring a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger for optimum boost control.

Mitsubishi's new Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) adds superior power transmission efficiency for a powertrain that delivers nimble performance alongside excellent fuel economy and low emissions.

For intuitive handling and outstanding stability on all road surfaces., the concept features an electronically controlled 4WD system driven through large 225/45R19 tires.

Environmentally friendly features
The car features a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) with diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system for compliance with Europe's Euro 5 emission standards.

The Concept-cX makes extensive use of interior trim materials made from Mitsubishi's own Green Plastic — made from bamboo and other plant-based resins.
