Mitsubishi G4 Compact Sedan Concept

Η Mitsubishi αύριο στη Γενεύη θα μας παρουσιάσει τα πρωτότυπα CA-MiEV και GR-HEV, και στα τέλη του μηνός, στις 25 Μαρτίου, θα παρουσιάσει το G4 Compact Sedan Concept στο περιθώριο της έκθεσης του Μπανγκόκ.

Το G4 Compact Sedan Concept μας δείχνει το πως θα μοιάζει το νέο παγκόσμιο σεντάν αυτοκίνητό της το οποίο θα παρουσιαστεί μέσα στο 2013. Χρησιμοποιεί σώμα τεχνολογίας RISE (reinforced impact safety evolution) το οποίο μεταξύ άλλων είναι κατασκευασμένο από ελαφρύ χάλυβα υψηλής αντοχής που μειώνει το βάρους του αυτοκινήτου, κάνοντάς το παράλληλα πιο οικονομικό.

Κάτω από καπό του βρίσκεται ο 1.200αρης MIVEC κινητήρας ο οποίος συνδυάζεται με ένα CVT κιβώτιο που στέλνει τη κίνηση στον μπροστά άξονα.

1. MITSUBISHI Concept G4

The MITSUBISHI Concept G4 is a concept model for a new compact sedan which MMC plans to roll out globally. The MITSUBISHI Concept G4 uses a high-clarity brilliant-cut diamond motif in the design of the front grill, headlamps and rear combination lamps to create a frontal visage with a commanding presence and a tail end which leaves a sharp impression as it drives off into the distance.

The MITSUBISHI Concept G4 carries next-generation compact sedan styling featuring a short nose which delivers an outstanding forward field of view and superior maneuverability, graceful and flowing side proportions which balances interior space among the most generous in its class with very sleek aerodynamics, and a dynamic character line which kicks up towards the rear.

The MITSUBISHI Concept G4 achieves fuel efficiency that is among the best in its class as its RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body – the lightest in its class due to the extensive use of high-tensile steel – is powered by a lightweight and compact 1.2-liter MIVEC engine mated to a CVT with sub-geartrain in addition to uncompromising weight reduction throughout.

The MITSUBISHI Concept G4 delivers driving pleasure thanks to the agile and pleasing driving dynamics stemming from its lighter weight as well as its reassuring handling/stability and comfortable ride. Passenger comfort is enhanced by the high hip point and large door openings which facilitate entry and exit as well as by its generous rear seat leg space. 2.
