The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Hits The Town.

Mitsubishi is set to broaden the appeal of its newly launched Eclipse Cross small SUV later this year with the addition of a new entry-level variant. This new variant is likely to be priced below $30,000 (Plus on road costs). According to Mitsubishi Motors Australia president and CEO John Signoriello, ‘the Eclipse Cross has the potential to redefine Mitsubishi.’

Under the bonnet of all the SUV variants is an all-new 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW of power at 5500rpm and 250Nm of torque at 1800rpm, matched exclusively with a continuously variable transmission with Sport mode, manual override and paddle shifters.

The Eclipse Cross also comes with, 18-inch alloy wheels, climate-control air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, privacy glass, forward collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, auto high beam, electronic stability and traction control and seven airbags. Improved packaging and the latest software puts the Eclipse Cross on a pricing par with the segment leaders. As opposed to the approach of the Mitsubishi ASX and Outlander, which are the bargain buys of their respective classes.

The Eclipse Cross shines a light on the future of Mitsubishi, fusing a more shapely look on to the company’s reputation for reliability.
