Binh DuongThe small crossover was tested on a closed road with a closed camouflage, but still showed some design changes.
After a test run in mid-February in Indonesia, Mitsubishi XFC appeared in Vietnam in a closed track in Binh Duong in early May. The CUV only revealed the overall contours because it was still camouflaged by the “coat” of camouflage. cover, but it can be seen that the design is similar to the concept version that was launched globally in Ho Chi Minh City in October 2022.
New features in the design include more practical wheels, less scratches and more convenient to clean; rearview mirror instead of rearview camera and especially the fog lamp cavity is smaller and more seamless. On the concept version, many people think that the fog lights have a cavity design similar to the exhaust pipe, making the face less charming. This change gives the commercial version a more refined look.
The test version has a horizontal stripe overhead brake light instead of a vertical one like the concept version. Other features that are maintained as the concept model include the Dynamic Shield grille, headlights with L-positioning, a fastback-oriented roof with seamless glass extending through the C-pillar, and L-shaped taillights.
Mitsubishi Vietnam has not commented on this information as well as the time of the car launch in the country. Source of VnExpress said that this is a pre-commercial version, which is very close to the actual design of the model sold on the market.
The B-sized crossover will be launched in Indonesia in August. Dealers are now accepting deposits for early deliveries. Most likely the car will launch in early 2024.
