Red face Mitsubishi Delicia D5

One of my colleague's MUV in Japan.

"It is an eight-seater, that features Mitsubishi's AWC four wheel drive system and an INVECS-III continuously variable transmission, coupled to a 4B12 2.4 L MIVEC straight-4 engine. B"

Couldnt digest the shape though !

The bottom segment of the front fender looks like it cam from the Jeep Compass, the grill from a Nissan Murano, and the rest of the body a bunch of other MUVs. Never seen this one before!

I think that this car is based on current Lancer ( i.e. Lancer that is currently sold in developed markets ) platform.

Will make sense if in India too if they update the front and give it a better look. Can give fight to Innova too and the Lancer's platform is known to give good handling and ride. Innova will have its first true competitor. Xylo is in a different league.

Looks like a pregnant Hummer with excessive plastic (parts) "surgery".

Cant believe its from the same company that designed the Lancer X and Pajero. These japs are crazy !!
