Essentially a production cX concept, the crossover features an Evo-like grille, Lancer-style headlights, and pronounced fender flares. Other design details include a character line that runs from the A- to D-pillar, a miniscule rear quarter window, and a nearly vertical tailgate.

Riding on Mitsubishi's mid-size global platform (which also underpins the Lancer and Outlander), the compact crossover will be powered by a variety of four-cylinder engines including a new 1.8-liter turbo-diesel with 136 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque.

While Mitsubishi hasn't revealed the crossover's name, the company has confirmed it will debut at the Geneva Motor Show after going on sale in Japan in February 2010.
