All except the Concept-D:5 I hope the next Galant has some shades of the X in it. I'm also wondering why the Outlander has what appears to be three rear view mirrors. Edited by El Scorcho

El Scorcho: Japanese home-market SUVs all have that wierd hood mounted extra rear view. Don't know why.

That mirror thing on Japanese vehicles for their domestic market is odd. They used to have dual mirrors far ahead on the front fenders.

The only one of those that I like at all is the "EVO X". The sides are to plain, when compared to the nose, and either need to be more aggressive or the nose needs toned down. Also the nose kind of looks like it put it's Audi/VW costume on upside down. D:5 just needs to be crushed. David

Ass-tastic. Where's Reg? I'm anxious to hear some "Well, the 1998 Buick Signia looked like shit" comments.

The concept cars do appear to forebode an attractive new corporate look for the cars. But that Outlander, it's incredibly bland. They threw a little X3 into the current Outlander.

I like all of them. I believe the Concept X hints at the next EVO... apparently, it's going to be more refined, more like the VW R32 and BMW M3.

Is it just me, or does the Concept X look like a photoshop of whatever concept they had at Frankfurt? The spoiler looks fake, and the red paint on the grill doesn't look real at all; it also looks like they missed a couple little spots where red should be, and put red where it shouldn't be (on the asphalt) when they were doing the chop.

X - pretty cool, somewhat original and a a little exciting

Outlander - Wow, how original :puke:

D5 - Looks just like any 1980s Van from ANY Japanese manufacturer :rolleyes:

No; it's a hand-held microphone so the mechanic that's bent over your grille weekly can tell you the many many many things wrong without you having to get out of your vehicle. Which is just about how you'll feel after buying a mitsu: bent over.

X Marks the Spot for Mitsubishi's New Lancer Evo
Date Posted 09-28-2005

TOKYO — Mitsubishi's Lancer Evolution, one of Japan's hottest cars, will undergo a major ground-up redesign within two years. And the deeply sexy Concept-X show car, to be revealed at October's Tokyo Motor Show, points the way.

Just weeks after Mitsubishi unveiled the similar-but-different Concept-Sportback at the Frankfurt show, it will show its Concept-X four-door sedan — the Concept-Sportback is a five-door hatch. Both go with Mitsubishi's aggressive new-age styling that borrows cues from a jet fighter. Underneath lies the company's modular new C-segment platform.

Under the hood, the Concept-X goes with a brand-new four-cylinder, dual-overhead variable cam, 2.0-liter, intercooled turbo. The transmission is a six-speed, direct-shift-gearbox-style (DSG) automanual with steering wheel paddle shift.

The suspension is strut/multilink, and to save weight, several Concept-X body panels are made from aluminum. Riding on 20-inch tires, the Concept-X also debuts "super all-wheel control," the next generation of the Lancer Evo's stunningly effective, computerized all-wheel drive.

Mitsubishi deliberately has made the Concept-X cockpit simple and functional, so as not to distract the driver, while aluminum highlights enforce an upscale look.

Mitsubishi will do one final minor change on the current Evo IX in 2006 before the all-new, eagerly awaited Evo X hits the blocks in 2007.

What this means to you: Mitsubishi is ready to rock with Concept-X.

Jesus, people, if you're going to claim your cars are inspired by aircraft, then give them cues inspired by aircraft! Very, very simple.

Am I the only one totally unimpressed by the look of this car? I see TL meets TL meets TL with an dopey, upside down Audiesque grille.

I'm not a Mitsu fan by any stretch of the imagination, but if they make the production Lancer look 90% like this, it will be the best-looking compact out there.

The red sedan is HOT, but I hope they give us the 5 door too. I am not a Mitsu fan either, but this is light years ahead of the current uber bland Lancer.
