Latest model: Mitsubishi CUV 2011
Mitsubishi CUV 2011At the 2010 New York International Auto Show, Mitsubishi Motors expanded the Outlander family lineup with the debut of an all-new crossover utility car (CUV). Developed from the bottom up with a striking layout and rigid, lightweight body, the smart-sized crossover features fuel economy with stylish and feature-rich luxury performance. Using lightweight, dent-resistant plastic front fender body panels, regenerative braking and improved class-leading aerodynamics, developers have brought estimated highway fuel efficiency into the 31mpg range. Boosting the new crossover's list of luxury features are such traditional technologies as Active Stability Control (ASC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Electric Performance Steering (EPS), a powerful seven-airbag security system, and a cutting edge, high-contrast LCD instrument screen. Active and stylish consumers will also appreciate the available Led-accented Panoramic Glass Roof, 710W nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo system and FUSE Hands-free Link system.

Mitsubishi CUV details:

Two trims will be provided in the U. sphere for 2010: the budget-minded ES with a traditional 5-speed manual transmission or the luxury SE with a traditional sportronic 6-speed CVT with magnesium-alloy paddle shifters. Traditional for all models is a economical, 148hp Mivec-equipped 2. 0-liter four-cylinder motor. A CVT transmission is available on ES trim and electronically controlled All-wheel Control (AWC) is available on SE models.

One of the core concepts for the new Mitsubishi CUV is a striking new layout language known as compact dynamism, providing a functionally vibrant exterior that uses proper, flowing aerodynamics to maximize visual impact and fuel economy. Featuring Mitsubishi's distinctive front jet fighter grille treatment, the clean and refreshing body lines are both emotionally stirring and high grade. By merging the Outlander's driving position and high-impact SUV layout with the vigor of a smaller suite, developers have created a cutting-edge entry level Mitsubishi CUV that fits a broad range of lifestyles.

The new Mitsubishi CUV also features smoothly refined aerodynamics and a class-leading 0. 33 coefficient of drag, beating the Mazda CX7 (0. 34), Hyundai Tuscon (0. 37), and Subaru Forester (0. 38). Special steps were taken during the layout workflow, resulting in a wind tunnel tested front face, sloping sides, and gently curving roof. With a lower coefficient of drag, the vehicle's slippery shape is able to cut via air with less effort, increasing both fuel efficiency and acceleration.
