Mitsubishi has confirmed it will unveil a new compact SUV at March’s Geneva Motor Show, but it may not be as “new” as promised.

Teased through a pair of shadowy images today, the new concept appears to be largely identical to the sharp XR-PHEV concept that first appeared in 2013 at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Mitsubishi has clearly revisited the concept, however, with one of today’s teasers revealing an updated face that includes bold new grille louvres, strong and newly angled chrome garnishes, and a new skidplate along the bottom.

The headlights are also lightly tweaked, switching from three individual light units to two in each assembly.

We may see similar revisions through the profile and rear when the ‘new’ concept is unveiled, but there can be little doubt that this concept is is an evolution of the XR-PHEV show car.

But, whether identical or lightly updated, this concept plays an important part in reaffirming the design direction of Mitsubishi’s next-generation range.

That look was also confirmed again with the recent unveiling of the Outlander PHEV Concept S, a production-ready makeover for the existing Outlander that we will likely see in showrooms this year.

As with the Outlander PHEV, the XR-PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and we may see Mitsubishi reveal a new evolution of its green technology with this Geneva concept.

Watch for more on this new concept to surface in the coming weeks.
