Mitsubishi Concept-cX Runs On Diesel, Boasts Futuristic Dash

On the outside, the new Concept-cX from Mitsubishi looks kind of like a hopped-up Mini Cooper with an extended hood. The inside, however, is a wholly different story altogether. You get treated to an interesting tan and ivory color scheme that wraps its way around a whole whack of high tech gadgetry.

Even the speedometer looks like it’s out of this world with the bright red backlighting and silver bezels. The real star, though, can be found in the center console. I can’t say for sure, but it appears to be a full touchscreen display, telling you whether the passenger airbag is on, adjusting the zoned climate control, and presumably blasting out some tunes too. The interior trim is made of eco-friendly “Green Plastics”, which feature plant-based resin technology.

To boot, the Concept-cX, which has a front end similar to the new Lancer, adheres to Euro 5 emission requirements for diesel-powered commercial vehicles. The 136 horsepower gets generated by a 1.8L 4-cylinder DOHC “Clean Diesel” engine. There’s also a variable geometry turbocharger.
