Mississauga, ON. – With a reputation of sporty driving and advanced technology, the Mitsubishi Eclipse sports car was one of company’s best-selling and iconic vehicles ever. Now, the Eclipse moniker is making its comeback with the same reputation for driving dynamics and technology in the form of a compact Crossover Utility Vehicle, the all-new 2018 Eclipse Cross. The Eclipse Cross is a fusion of sharp coupe looks and dynamic SUV mobility with signature Mitsubishi Motors styling, technology and performance.
The Eclipse Cross will join the RVR and Outlander to form a formidable CUV lineup for Mitsubishi Motors. The Eclipse Cross contains many all-new features including a 1.5-litre turbo-charged engine, dual-pane, power-sliding panoramic roof, 7-inch thin-type Smartphone link Display Audio with touchpad controller , Head-Up Display (HUD) and heated rear seats.
Another new interior feature for the Eclipse Cross is a full-colour Head-Up Display (HUD) that provides the driver with real-time vehicle information. The HUD system is standard on the GT price line. Eclipse Cross comes standard with a 1.5-litre direct-injection turbo-charged power plant that offers a compelling combination of drivability, performance and efficiency. This new turbo technology provides both strong torque and better fuel efficiency. The engine produces 152 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 184 lb-ft torque at 3,500 rpm. For Canada, all Eclipse Cross price lines are equipped with Mitsubishi Motors’ proprietary, advanced S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control) system, which enhances both straight-line stability and cornering performance by precisely controlling the torque supplied to each of the four wheels.
