Vehicle Spotlight - 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Mitsubishi officially unveiled the 2018 Eclipse Cross at the Geneva Motor Show, much to the pleasure of crossover lovers and enthusiasts everywhere. The new model bears a sleek design that’s as functional as it is gorgeous. Inside, drivers will experience a luxurious cabin marked by upscale materials and advanced technologies. Drivers will have their choice of two powertrains on the new vehicle.
The upcoming crossover boasts a design that’s a sporty alternative to the rest of the brand’s SUV lineup. Previous concepts, like the XR-PHEV, have presented similar styling cues. When it comes to size, the Eclipse Cross lands between the Outlander Sport and standard Outlander SUVs.
Inside, drivers will enjoy an upscale dashboard with a tablet-sized screen and touchpad controller. A head-up display will help improve safety and keep the driver’s attention on the road. The 2018 Eclipse Cross has also been confirmed to come with standard 60/40-split rear seats.
When it comes to technology, the Eclipse Cross seems to come packed to the brim. The upcoming crossover features Apple CarPlay and Android compatibility. The dash screen features information from safety systems, as well as the vehicle’s speed and navigation.
Drivers will have their choice of two powertrains in the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission. The second powertrain is a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While performance figures have yet to be released, all-wheel drive is included as an optional feature.
While the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross may bear the badge of a sports car that left the market in 2012, this is clearly an all-new model. While executives haven’t confirmed anything yet, there could be Ralliart and coupe models added to the lineup, should the crossover see high sales numbers.
Keep an eye out for the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at Coronet Mitsubishi this time next year!
