Vehicle Comparison: The Mitsubishi Lancer and Eclipse

Mitsubishi Eclipse and Mitsubishi Lancer Similarities


The Mitsubishi Eclipse was a sports coupe produced by Mitsubishi until 2011. The Eclipse was well-loved in the auto community for its diverse options, fantastic performance, and attractive styling. It was even featured in the original The Fast and the Furious in 2002.

The Eclipse is no longer in production but Mitsubishi still has an affordable sports car in its lineup: The Lancer.

You don’t need the Eclipse or the Lancer Evolution when you have the sporty Lancer, which offers attractive styling, speedy performance, and an impressive price tag.

While fundamentally different than its cousin the Eclipse, the Lancer actually shares a few similarities while offering its own unique elements that make it stand out.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

The new Lancer has sport-oriented technology like All-Wheel-Control, which gives you superior control and handling for real sports car feel. The available rear-view camera is also an asset to the Lancer that improves driving safety.

The Lancer is built with Mitsubishi’s RISE body construction that designs crumple zones to route and absorb impact in the event of a collision.

The 2017 Lancer isn’t just a good alternative to Mitsubishi’s older sports car models—it’s a fantastic car of its own, with tons of new technologies you’ll love.

And best of all? You can find it here today at El Cajon Mitsubishi!
