The Mitsubishi XFC Concept‘s production model will soon make its debut at the 30th Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show on August 10. As such, the automaker is beginning to tease a few more features to build hype.

For one, it seems that the automaker is building on its all-terrain and all-weather prowess by confirming that the all-new subcompact SUV will have a claimed class-leading ground clearance of 222mm.

It will have four drive modes: Normal, Gravel, Mud, and Wet. The last one will allow for worry-free driving through flooded roads, a common occurrence in the ASEAN region.

The car will also have Active Yaw Control, which improves the vehicle’s cornering and traction performance by adjusting various factors like driving force, traction control, engine power, and power steering. This system was introduced on the legendary Lancer Evolution, and only recently reappeared in the Xpander Cross.

The press photos also showed off a few more exterior and interior bits, all of which look reassuringly similar to the XFC Concept. Finally, based on the pictures, the Dynamic Sound Yamaha Premium sound system will be a six-speaker setup with the ability to adjust the volume and the equalizer settings for clear sound regardless of the road surface.
