Transmission is both automatic and manual, six speed, and very precise. Traction system is named S-AWC, which means Super All Wheel Control, and it is based on the renowned traditional Mitsubishi integral traction, that we can find also in Lancer Evolution, but with different control systems added, like Active Brake Control, lActive Steering System and Roll Control Suspension. In addition, this concept car features MacPherson suspension on the front and a multi-link system at the rear. As you can see looking at our photogallery, Yokohama Advan tyres dress up 20” alloy wheels.
Light Mitsubishi Concept-X’s structure is composed of alluminium, and this guarantee a very light weight, but till keeping steadiness and safety. Interior’s structure was studied to help a “communication” between the driver and the vehicle. A high risolution LCD monitor contains all informations about S-AWD system. Also passengers are equipped with a personal LCD monitor, placed on the headrest of the front seats. In conclusion, shell seats and leather and allumium detailings give the whole cab an aggressive sports look.
