Is Mitsubishi hinting at plans to build another all-new compact SUV? If the Japanese firm’s styling study for September’s Frankfurt Motor Show is to be believed, the answer is yes.

 

Called the Concept-cX, it’s described as an accessible, affordable, sustainable, and realistic solution to the motoring issues of today. At 161.4 inches in length, it’s slightly shorter than a Jeep Patriot.

 

Featuring the jet-fighter grille already seen with Lancer sedan and using the Outlander-derived electric control four-wheel drive drivetrain, the newcomer is intended to be a link between Mitsubishi’s passenger cars and SUVs.

 

Under the hood is a low-emission 1.8-liter diesel engine, designed to meet the Euro V emissions legislation and developed with parent company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. It’s mated to an automatic transmission and is a preview of a family of powertrains due for launched in 2009. A variable geometry diffuser turbocharger — to generate optimum boost pressure for all engine loads — and a diesel particulate filter will be standard.

 

The car carries on the environmental theme inside, with so-called green plastics — plant-based resin technology — being used to form parts of the interior trim.
