The XFC is a brand-new compact SUV concept from Mitsubishi that previewed a production vehicle that will make its market debut in ASEAN markets in 2023. Instead of replacing an existing model, this SUV will add to the company’s lineup. As the most recent development of the dynamic Shield concept, the front of the Mitsubishi XFC has a new design language.
Instead, of the traditional double Chrome elements, It features T-shaped lead headlights sending pole star vibes. The Evo X style Grille adds to the aggression even though it is mostly covered. Looking at the large aluminium-style skid plate below it integrates additional LEDs for a rugged look.
The 2023 Mitsubishi XFC profile is more sculpted than Mitsubishi’s current offerings with pronounced rear shoulders and a floating roof. Also, we can’t forget about the total absence of door handles and mirror-placing cameras. Moving to the rear end, the Mitsubishi XFC LED tail lights mirror the shape of the headlights as is the case with the rear bumper with the Dual illuminated hexagons resembling tailpipes.
When you step inside, the interior appears to be very close to production status setting aside the light-coloured Upholstery and the fancy textures. The cabin also features a dual-screen digital cockpit, a three-spoke steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons, and a floating centre console with a futuristic gear shift lever. Not only that, there are hidden air vents, sporty seats and a long sunroof.
Unfortunately, during the preview, the Automaker didn’t clarify whether the XFC will offer AWD or be an FWD-only proposal like most rival compact SUVs. Also, there is no information addressing what platform the New Mitsubishi XFC will be built on and the powertrains it will use.
