Mitsubishi Motors is set to unveil its new Compact SUV at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The forthcoming Geneva Motor Show marks a turning point for Mitsubishi Motors with the world premiere of its latest SUV, the first of a new generation of Mitsubishi vehicles.
Mitsubishi’s new sporty compact SUV is deemed to re-define the Crossover landscape, with sharp, expressive lines and a sleek yet muscular body, combining style and versatility like never before. With its striking design, the sporty, coupe-like SUV will line up alongside the Mitsubishi ASX and Mitsubishi Outlander to broaden the brand’s model range and introduce a whole new audience to Mitsubishi, a name long associated with stylish, tough and extremely capable SUVs and 4X4s.
Sharper in its expression than a conventional coupe, this new, compact SUV will feature highly chamfered contours with a wedge-shaped belt line and a distinctive V-line in the rear quarter stemming from the forward-slanted C-pillar and the chunky, muscular rear fenders.
Further details will be available upon its world debut at the show…
2017 Geneva Motor Show: Car of the Year 2017
The 2017 Geneva International Motor Show will again prepare the election of the Car of the Year. The final vote plus the awarding of the prize will take place for the sixth time within the framework of the Motor Show. Seven finalists have already been decided. The ceremony will be reserved for accredited journalists but can be followed by the general public online.
The Car of the Year trophy is highly prized by the automobile manufacturers, and, since 1964, has been the oldest and most prestigious award of its kind in Europe. Following the selection of the candidates (29 models) and a week of testing at Tannitest in Denmark in October 2016, followed by numerous individual tests, the jury nominated the seven finalists below on November 18, 2016: Alfa Romeo Giulia, Citroën C3, Mercedes E-Class, Nissan Micra, Peugeot 3008, Toyota C-HR and Volvo S90/V90. These finalists will undergo a final series of rigorous tests on 20 – 21 February at the Automobile Research and Testing Centre at Mortefontaine (France). Finally, the members of the Jury will award 25 points, spread over at least five of the seven models, under the ultimate scrutiny that will take place at Palexpo.
