The Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show 2016 officially opened its doors yesterday and there have been quite a few interesting debuts, such as the Mitsubishi XM Concept which made its global debut.
Here to take on the Honda BR-V, Honda Mobilio, Suzuki Ertiga, and the Toyota Avanza, the XM Concept, which is a crossover between an MPV and an SUV, is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine with a front-wheel drive configuration.
The XM name is said to be a combination of the letter “X” which refers to a crossover and “M” which stands for MPV – as the concept promises to offer the capabilities of a SUV with the practicality of an MPV”.
According to Mitsubishi, the XM Concept was designed specifically for the Indonesian market and uses a platform that has never been used on any other Mitsubishi models.
The company also added that there will not be a diesel variant for now as there is too little demand for diesel engines in this segment.
Though no technical specifications were disclosed by Mitsubishi, the company did assure that the production version of the seven-seater will be 80 percent similar to the concept when it is launched.
