Mitsubishi Concept-cX at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show
Mitsubishi Motors will unveil mitsubishi Concept-cX at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show which will be open to the public from September 15 through 23. The Mitsubishi Concept-cX represents a new-generation compact SUV, realizing an ideal balance between environmental and everyday practical performance. The concept car uses a new high-output, high-efficiency 1.8-liter clean diesel engine, featuring a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger for optimum boost control and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) with diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system for compliance with Europe’s Euro 5 emission standards. Among the number of new environmental technologies applied in the Concept-cX is the extensive use of interior trim materials made from Mitsubishi’s own Green Plastic — made from bamboo and other plant-based resins — in a step to stop global warming and slow the depletion of our oil reserves.
MitsubishiConcept-cX offers a number of proposals for better utility and road performance. In the performance department, Concept-cX uses Mitsubishi’s electronically controlled 4WD system driven through large 225/45R19 tires to deliver intuitive handling and outstanding stability on all road surfaces.
