2011 MITSUBISHI CS CONCEPT
2011 Mitsubishi CS Concept created by Gábor Farkas. The design concept revives the Colt CA (92-96) with a touch of the C50 (88-92) model at the front, wrapped in Mitsubishi’s new jet-fighter design language. Almost production ready-looking concept study penned as a replacement for the Mitsubishi Colt supermini
Called the Mitsubishi CS, the Ford Fiesta-sized concept model blends select styling cues from the Japanese brand’s most recent models such as the Lancer’s so-called shark nose with an aggressive body shape boasting curvalicious details.
Less concept approach is continued in the interior which is partially inspired by the Outlander Sport (called ASX in Europe and RVR in Japan).
