    Mitsubishi Is Planning A Small Crossover That Will Arrive In Two Years


    • A New Crossover Is Coming from Mitsubishi

    The popularity of crossovers with consumers is continuing to rise and Mitsubishi wants to make sure they aren't left behind. Speaking with Automotive News, Mitsubishi CEO Osamu Masuko revealed that the Japanese automaker is working a new five-seat crossover that will slot in between the Outlander and Outlander Sport.

     

    The new crossover will take some styling ideas from the eX concept shown at the Tokyo Motor Show and compete with the likes of the Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage. Production is expected to begin in Fall of 2017 with Europe and U.S. being the main markets for this vehicle.

     

    "The Outlander is growing in size, while the Outlander Sport is getting smaller, so it opens a space for the new SUV. We need something to fit in between," said Masuko.

     

    This new crossover will help the plea from U.S. dealers that want something fresh in their lots. It also plays a key role into Mitsubishi's revival plan as the company is using crossovers and SUVs to help with their sales. At the moment, 56 percent of Mitsubishi's total volume in the U.S. is made up of crossovers.
