Come one, come all to see the all-new 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that arrived in the U.S. this month. The new Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover that is built to compete with the best of them and provide a bit of fun while doing so. Thanks to its vibrant design and dynamic driving experience, drivers will surely be drawn to all that the Eclipse Cross has to offer.
The Mitsubishi Cross is available at four trim levels: ES, LE, SE, and SEL.
The powertrain on the Eclipse Cross gives the perfect amount of dynamism to your ride, combining an all-new 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine with an eight-speed continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode. The engine offers a lively 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, while also being respectably efficient at 29 mpg on the highway.* With the advanced eight-speed transmission, you’ll have great acceleration and a responsive driving experience that you’ll surely appreciate.
Mitsubishi’s history of exceptional all-wheel drive systems is pushed even further with the Eclipse Cross’s available Super All-Wheel Control system. This innovative system integrates five key components—the electronically controlled 4WD system, Active Stability Control (ASC), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Active Yaw Control (AYC), and a set of active sensors—to optimize traction and control while driving. This advanced system creates a confident driving experience under any road conditions, from harsh weather to harsh terrain.
The interior of the Eclipse Cross is sophisticated as well as sporty, featuring an intuitive and driver-centric layout. It offers an available 7-inch Smartphone Link Thin Display Audio System with state-of-the-art connectivity features, allowing you to wirelessly connect your phone and listen to your favorite tunes. The comfort on the interior is further enhanced if you opt for the available leather seating, an available dual pane panoramic sunroof, available dual zone climate control, and available heated front and rear seats and steering wheel. With the convenient 22.6 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seat, you’ll have ample room to store your belongings.
The SE and SEL trim levels offers premium, advanced safety features that will give you additional piece of mind while driving. These features include Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, which actively monitors both sides of your vehicle and alerts you if there are vehicles in your blind spots or vehicles approaching rapidly on either side of you, which is especially useful while changing lanes. Other features include Automatic High Bean headlights, Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross revives an iconic name from Mitsubishi’s heritage, and though it has a lot to live up to, we think it’s started off on the right foot—or the right wheel. Come give it a look at El Cajon Mitsubishi!
