The European media is already counting-down to the Geneva Motor Show in March with expectations Mitsubishi will unveil an all-new medium SUV.

Predictions are this vehicle will tackle the Nissan Qashqai which is a big-seller in Europe. Size-wise that would put the as-yet un-named newcomer between the current ASX and Outlander ranges.

Britain’s Autocar reckons the Mitsubishi XR-PHEV concept vehicle - shown initially at Geneva in 2013 and in updated form as the XR-PHEV II (pictured) in 2015 - provides the best pointer to likely styling.

While that vehicle was claimed to be a front-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid, with a requirement for significant sales volume, expect the production version to employ turbocharged petrol and diesel engines and both 2WD and AWD drivelines.

Mitsubishi hired former Nissan designer Tsunehiro Kunimoto (the Juke was his creation) in 2014 so this all-new medium SUV would be the first Mitsubishi created under his control.

Also in the pipeline for Mitsubishi is an all-new compact SUV (smaller than the current ASX) which is expected in 2019 - one year ahead of the all-new Outlander range which is tipped to once again include a plug-in-hybrid model.
