The Mitsubishi Concept-X unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Show should be able to give an insight on how the final form of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X will look like. It looks like a sedan version of the Mitsubishi Sportsback Concept.
The Mitsubishi Concept-X is powered by an all-aluminium block MIVEC 4 cylinder DOHC engine turbocharged with an intercooler.
The car gets a new gearbox which is of the automated manual variety which is basically a manual gearbox with a computer controlled clutch. The gearbox is a 6-speed, and drivers can control the upshift and downshift using steering wheel mounted paddle shift controls.
The car also gets an updated version of Mitsubishis latest 4WD-based Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system.
The car’s body has a fair amount of weight optimization, with aluminum being used for components like the engine hood, trunk lid, fenders, roof and door panels.
The car’s suspension features an active Roll Control Suspension technology. This combined with Active Brake Control, and Active Steering System works together with the S-AWC all-wheel drive to provide superior ride control.
Notice the wide brake pedal and the accelerator pedal. No clutch pedal as it’s an automated manual transmission.
