The Japanese automaker has recently shed light on its strategy for the early-March Geneva Motor Show, which includes the launch of two new concept cars based off the ASX crossover and L200 pickup truck.
Using as a base the 2017 ASX and L200, the prototypes have been teased for the first time and will bring to the table a bespoke “mid-grey livery” with contrasting bright orange accents and black alloy wheels. The modifications don’t seem too farfetched form the realm or reality and this means the company is testing the crowd reaction for a couple of special editions to be introduced later down the life cycle of the models. There are no other specific details concerning the models but we do know the ASX/Outlander Sport can be had with a variety of engines – petrol and diesel. In the US for example, the crossover can be had with a base 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque.
Apart from the twin ASX and L200 concepts, the Japanese carmaker is also splashing in Geneva with the eX concept that we first saw during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. This one is being used to tease an upcoming new compact crossover and has the Dynamic Shield front fascia with stylish LED headlights. Power comes courtesy of an electric powertrain that is good for a range of 248 miles before hooking up to the mains for recharging.
