Mitsubishi has been teasing a new SUV since January and now it’s finally arrived! The Japanese automaker showed off the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at the Geneva Motor Show. The Eclipse Cross boasts a sporty, streamlined design and is a prime example of just what Mitsubishi’s designers are capable of.
While it bears the name of the automaker’s discontinued sports car, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will have a slot between the Outlander Sport and Outlander models. We first saw the Eclipse Cross in the form of the XR-PHEV Concept in 2013.
The all-new SUV boasts a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission that churns out 160 hp. Drivers can also opt for a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission instead. That engine, along with a PHEV powertrain, will launch later on.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will come with four-wheel drive and Active Yaw Control, a performance feature that launched on the Lancer Evolution sedan.
The interior brings a screen on the dash with a head-up display and touchpad controller. The new SUV also features 60/40 split rear seats and an interior appointed with silver and black accents.
We here at Biggers Mitsubishi can’t wait for the arrival of the new Eclipse Cross!
