A new pack of spyshots are confirming that Mitsubishi is indeed working on an all-new Mitsubishi Crossover that might be released sometime in 2011, probably during spring or summer. As you can see in the adjacent photos, the car is heavily camouflaged, so only a few things can be spotted.

However, it might seem the car will be a bit bulky, somewhat like a Nissan Qashqai, a model that posted a very high success in most markets. According to some rumors, Mitsubishi is especially designing a Qashqai-like model, in order to compete with the vehicle sold by Nissan, so this might be the first indication that there might be some truth behind these stories.

Mitsubishi's new model will be longer and wider as compared to the Colt. It will be offered with a front-wheel drive as standard, while an all-wheel drive configuration will be offered as an option.

The future Crossover range will comprise of several new engines, especially optimized for improved fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. The new lineup will release outputs ranging from 90 to 170 horsepower, according to early rumors. Diesel units will be available as well, with Lancer’s 140-hp 2.0-litre DI-D configuration very likely to be offered on the upcoming Crossover as well.

A hybrid version is a likely scenario as well but there's still no information on the powertrain to be fitted on the future Crossover.

The car will go on sale in 2011 so Mitsubishi will most likely display the model at one of the auto shows in 2010.
