At the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, to be held March 7th through 19th in Geneva, Switzerland, Mitsubishi has plans to unveil a brand new addition to its lineup. This new Mitsubishi SUV will join the Outlander Sport, Outlander, and Outlander PHEV SUV models currently sold by Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi has announced that the new vehicle will be a compact model that will have sharp styling characteristics. These will include a wedge-shaped belt line, a steeply raked rear window, a long wheelbase, and a strong character line running along the side. Together these features will give the new SUV a sort of coupe design with an active, athletic feel.
We got a glimpse of this design through a shadowy teaser image Mitsubishi previously released. But Mitsubishi didn’t announce where the new model would sit in the lineup. However, many in the industry suspect it will come in below the Outlander Sport to compete with models like the Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V.
As for its name, Mitsubishi hasn’t announced that either. Autoblog suspects it could wear the Eclipse name, which was last seen on the sporty compact car in 2012.
Here at Biggers Mitsubishi, we are excited to see a new model coming to the Mitsubishi lineup! We can’t wait to learn even more about it when it makes its debut next month.
