The Mitsubishi Concept-X, a concept car with styling that raises the bar on performance car looks, boasts Mitsubishi's 4WD-based Super All Wheel Control vehicle dynamics control system, and has been designed to be the very embodiment of "driving pleasure". The all-new Outlander SUV, due to be launched in Japan on October 17, is a mid-sized 4x4 that showcases outstanding design, versatility and utility.

Mitsubishi Concept-X debuts the company's design for the next generation Lancer Evolution. The Concept-X is powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder DOHC MIVEC intercooler-Turbocharged engine that delivers instant response at all engine speeds with flat torque that keeps pulling up to the red line. Concept-X uses a clutchless 6-speed auto-manual transmission with paddle shifters mounted on the steering column to deliver slicker shifting and higher transmission efficiency than a regular manual gearbox.

The ring-structure frame design produces a significant increase in body stiffness, while the use of aluminium in the bonnet, boot lid, bumpers, roof and front and rear door panels reduces weight. Weight reduction, lowering the centre of gravity and reducing the moment of inertia, all contribute to better motive performance and better handling. The suspension features a MacPherson strut at the front and a multi-link arrangement at the rear. Working in conjunction with Mitsubishi Motors' "Roll Control Suspension" technology, this design delivers extraordinary levels of ride and road holding.

Concept-X showcases Mitsubishi's Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) technology. A further step up the evolutionary ladder for Mitsubishi Motors' four-wheel drive traction and handling technology, S-AWC realises cutting-edge levels of dynamic control. Based on Mitsubishi's full-time 4WD system, as used in Lancer Evolution, S-AWC adds Active Brake Control, Active Steering System and Roll Control Suspension technologies to create a fully integrated system.
