New Mitsubishi CX due late next year

Mitsubishi CX concept rendering

A new rendering released by Mitsubishi is giving a glimpse at the styling for its upcoming ‘CX’ compact SUV. Based on the Concept CX crossover first revealed back in 2007, Mitsubishi’s newest SUV is expected to go on sale in Japan early next year before a global launch late 2010.

The Concept-CX revealed at Frankfurt featured a constant all-wheel-drive system, and the production CX is likely to continue this set-up although no official details have been offered by Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi is expected to use the CX to showcase a new range of efficient diesel engines, developed to meet strict Euro 5 emissions standards while offering strong performance. The diesel engine range is expected to start with a 1.8 litre four-cylinder, developing 101kW and 279Nm of torque.

Each will likely feature a variable geometry turbocharger to improve output and efficiency, with a diesel particulate filter and a diesel oxidation catalyst to keep emissions within strict Euro 5 standards.

The CX will enter Mitsubishi’s SUV range below the updated Outlander, with the Pajero and upcoming 2010 Challenger topping the line-up.
