Mitsubishi Geoseek Concept

Mitsubishi Motors Corporate (MMC) will premier two new concept cars at the upcoming 2016 Geneva International Motor Show – the L200 (Triton) Geoseek Concept and ASX Geoseek Concept.

Adding a dash of flavour to the current Triton and face-lifted ASX model, each Geoseek Concept is accessorised to express their outdoor adventurous side with tough-look added accessories geared toward outdoor enthusiasts.

Exterior
Giving expression to the toughness of these models, the two versions of the Geoseek Concept use a solid tone pearl grey body finish while the parts serve to symbolise the functional nature of an SUV including fog lamps bezels, wheel arches, alloy wheel rims, side garnish, tailgate spoiler, rear bumper and eye-catching door mirrors are accented in a vibrant orange.

To enhance their active look, the front fascia sports a mesh inner grill and a skid plate below the bumper while both are fitted with a roof basket for carrying bicycles or camping gear.

The Triton version has working lights and hand holds fitted to the roof rails while the ASX version uses LED fog lamps to bring out the individual personalities of the two models.

Interior
The mostly black trim uses the same vibrant orange accenting as the exterior in strategic areas to present a casual and sporty image akin to outdoor sporting wear.

The seats use highly functional covering materials with mesh fabric centre panels giving excellent ventilation while a suede-like fabric provides a low-slip surface to the side bolsters.

The Mitsubishi eX Concept will also premier for the first time in Europe. The compact SUV, which was first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015, is driven by a next-generation EV system which gives it a cruising range of 400 km.

Mitsubishi’s micro Mirage hatch: better, bolder for 2016

Australia’s most affordable 5-star ANCAP safety-rated car – the award-winning Mirage hatch – has received a boost for 2016 with fresh exterior looks, upgraded interior and better on-road dynamics.

The Mirage’s sleek new looks include a new front grille with chrome accents, redesigned bonnet, front and rear bumper and wheel design.

Inside, a new high-grade seating trim and cushioned rear seats improve passenger comfort and piano black and chrome accents enhance the cabin’s touch points.

Mirage’s on-road performance benefits from more intuitive steering response, better balanced handling and increased ride comfort, thanks to an extensive rework of suspension tune and electric power steering calibration.

The 2016 Mirage now offers even lower running costs with Capped Price Servicing reduced by $270 over the four-year servicing period. Combined with class-leading fuel economy* of 4.6L/100km^, the Mirage remains one of Australia’s cheapest cars to own and operate.

Mitsubishi Motors Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said Mitsubishi‘s 2016 update improves on Mirage’s award-winning formula with bold new looks, higher quality interior finishes and on-road performance that encourages more confident driving.

“Mirage is already packed with great standard features, so for 2016 we’ve made meaningful improvements to Mirage’s Capped Price Servicing costs, dynamic performance and visual appeal, while preserving Mirage’s attractive price point, which we know is critical to value-conscious micro car shoppers,” he said.

“Mirage is still the most affordable car in Australia with five star ANCAP safety, and it’s this combined with Mirage’s low running costs, great packaging and class-leading fuel economy that has made it one of the top picks in the micro segment since 2013.”

“Easy to drive and easy to live with, the Mirage offers an unbeatable mix of style, practicality and value.”

Leading the field at the recent 2015 Australia Best Car awards, the Mirage hatch ES was named the ‘Best Micro Car’ for the second year in a row, with judges praising the Mirage for its class-leading fuel consumption, road manners, low running and repair costs and new car warranty.
