2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Compact Crossover Confirmed for the USA - Update

Speaking to the press at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi executive John Koenig said that the company is working on a small new crossover that would be called the Outlander Sport in the United States...

Press Release:

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation announces all-new Compact Crossover-Game Changer-

Mitsubishi Motor Corporation (MMC) announces today the forthcoming introduction of its all-new on-road Compact Crossover, to be retailed first in Japan from February 2010 onwards.

Derived from the much-acclaimed 2007 Concept-cX show car, it is the latest development of MMC's mid-size global platform ("Project Global").

This most important product will further support Mitsubishi Motor's strategic shift from being an SUV-focused nameplate to a manufacturer of environment-friendly passanger cars & crossovers*, with a presence in the "authentic off-roader" segment** - itself pre-empting structural changes in market demand.

As such-and after i-MIEV-this on-road Compact Crossover will be the Corporation's next game changer towards lower impact vehicles, in their format and/or in the innovative MMC proprietary technologies they will feature.

The European primiere is scheduled for the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
