Specifications

The basis of the compact crossover has become a good platform to express themselves Mitsubishi GS (the first model created on the basis of this sample was the Mitsubishi Outlander 2005), therefore the technical characteristics of cars are quite predictable. Vpereedi crossover has a MacPherson strut , rear – multi-link arrangement. Also present power steering, disc brakes (Brake Assist the ABC, the ESP , and Traction Control).

The front part of the car
