Mitsubishi ASX Crossover Interior Leaked Photo

Mitsubishi has already released a couple of photos showing its new crossover model - to be marketed as ASX in Europe and as RVR in Japan - but the company hasn't talked at all about the interior. Well, here is the first photo with the interior of the future model which reached the web via a leaked JDM brochure.

Set to debut in Europe at the upcoming 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March, the future Mitsubishi crossover will boast an Outlander-like dashboard but the center console is much simpler, with fewer buttons but still "dominated" by a large display that would be probably used to browse among some functions and access the navigation features.

According to the press release issued by Mitsubishi last month, the ASX will go on sale in European markets this year, probably soon after the public unveiling at Geneva.

Power will come from a 1.8-liter turbocharged direct-injection engine developed by MMC and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Complying with Euro 5 emission standard, the engine is matted to a 6-speed manual transmission, specifically optimized for environmental efficiency.

In order to get the best fuel economy and emission figures, the engine will also be fitted with Stop & Go but, as far as other non-European markets are concerned, such a feature might not be available.

Take Australia for example. Mitsubishi's local officials said such a feature is still in doubt but a final decision is yet to be made.

"There are a few issues there (with the stop-start technology), so I can't confirm (that the RVR) will get it,''
Mitsubishi Australia spokeswoman Lenore Fletcher told ''We're actually running through it (the car) at the moment to see what we're getting. We haven't even decided what the name is.''
