I have had you with this pretty catchy title is not it? But you can quickly come back from your little cloud, this new Mitsubishi that could revive the name Eclipse will in no way compete with the pretty Infiniti Q60 or Mercedes C Class Coupe. His target will be the Peugeot 3008 or BMW X4. Mitsubishi is preparing to reveal a new SUV at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
The manufacturer explains that its corner design will be distinguished by a prominent beltline, a tilted rear hatch, a long wheelbase and a very short rear overhang; The characteristics adopted to give the illusion that it is a coupe, without adopting features as radical as the two concepts XR-PHEV.
As is often done by the manufacturers, it is a silhouette that is revealed today, before the release of more accurate photos in the coming weeks. No technical information is disclosed. We just know that this coupe sporty SUV will enrich the range by positioning itself between the ASX and the Outlander. His silhouette seems destined to become a competitor of the Range Rover Evoque.
For now, Mitsubishi says nothing about the name this new compact SUV could take. According to British sources, the Japanese carmaker could claim the name Eclipse, used for a coupé whose marketing ceased in 2012.
