Mitsubishi adds a hint of outdoor adventure with new Geoseek concepts
Mitsubishi plans to get a little outdoorsy at this year's Geneva Motor Show, where it will debut two matching Geoseek concepts. The L200 Geoseek pickup and ASX Geoseek crossover wear equipment and styling inspired by the great outdoors and will bring a hint of fresh air and wide open spaces into the auto-packed Palexpo convention center.
When we first saw the orange highlights of the L200 Geoseek, it brought to mind another brightly accented pickup concept – the Dacia Duster Oroch. The Geoseek isn't as drastic a conversion as that 2014 concept or the Renault Alaskan that followed in 2015, but it does share a similar sense of adventure and vibrancy.
Equipment modifications on each new Geoseek concept are quite modest and include the front skid plate, gear basket on the roof and revised grille. The bright-orange accents draw attention to functional components like the fog lamps, wheels and mirrors.
The two pearl grey-painted models share many of the same features, but the L200 gets roof rail-connected handholds and lights, while the ASX includes LED fog lamps. The orange accents also vary a little by model. The black interiors include orange highlights, mesh seat panels and suede-like side bolster fabric.
Mitsubishi will reveal the Geoseek concepts at the Geneva Motor Show next week, where it will also hold the European premiere of the eX Concept.
