Sources say that it is based on the Colt, but has a taller and wider body. Autocar has been told that it is dynamically packaged to try and get away from the regular, van-like MPV look.<p>A decision will be taken in the next few weeks whether to re-engineer the car (including fitting diesels) for Europe, though some at Mitsubishi think that the current Colt will cover the needs of most of buyers of compact MPVs.<p>Autocar has also learnt that the next-generation 2006 Shogun will be billed as a proper SUV. According to one source, Mitsubishi will resist the trend towards lighter, more road-friendly monocoque construction because we know our customers want to go off-road. Its reckoned that other firms movement away from separate-chassis SUVs will increase the Shoguns appeal to serious off-roader drivers.<p>However the next Shogun Sport  also due in 2006  will be based on the Lancer car platform. Both Shoguns will get more flamboyant designs and special attention will be given to improving the quality and ambience of the cabins.</i><p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk//Car/Mitsubishi/Colt/209447509.jpg" BORDER="0"> <IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.co.uk/Car/Mitsubishi/Colt/209447535.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>here are a few High res picture links from Response.jp (click on the picture for the high res image):<p><A HREF="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74894.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74894_thumb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74916.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74916_thumb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74917.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74917_thumb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74918.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74918_thumb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A> <A HREF="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74915.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://response.jp/issue/2004/1025/article64933_1.images/74915_thumb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>I was too lazy to post this in the new car section, sue me. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0">
