The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the latest crossover joining Mitsubishi’s lineup, a compact SUV that will fit between the smaller Outlander Sport and the mid-size Outlander.
The Eclipse Cross will come with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission and will have standard All-Wheel Control, Mitsubishi’s unique all-wheel drive system. The Eclipse Cross is designed from scratch to reflect Mitsubishi’s new “Dynamic Shield” front styling as well as dynamic rear design language with fastback rear glass and high-mounted taillights.
The Eclipse Cross’ design is angular and sporty, and its interior matches the stylish exterior, mostly black with sophisticated silver accents and a floating infotainment display screen on top of the center stack. The display will be operated by a touchpad located in the center console, or the driver can use the display as a touchscreen.
Not much information has been released yet about the Eclipse Cross and its additional features, but it will have available heated front seats and heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, a sunroof, and leather upholstery. There will also be an optional head-up display.
