Mitsubishi has officially unveiled the new Eclipse Cross, a compact crossover, which will duel with Nissan’s Qashqai. To the surprise of many, the new Eclipse Cross will not remove the current ASX from the market.

Therefore, Mitsubishi’s 4x4 model range in Europe includes Outlander, ASX and the new Eclipse Sport.
Mitsubishi acknowledges that the name of the new SUV is inspired by the famous sports coupe, which Mitsubishi sold until a few years ago in the United States: Eclipse Sport. Mitsubishi Eclipse Sport was marketed in America between 1989 and 2012, and managed to attract 1.4 million customers in total, over four generations.

The Eclipse Cross version is described by Mitsubishi as a global strategic model which will be introduced first in Europe this autumn and then in Japan, North America, Australia and other regions. Its debut took place at the Geneva Motor Show.

Standing 4,405 mm long, 1,805 mm wide, 1,685 mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,670 mm, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is placed in the same category as Nissan’s Qashqai (4,377 mm long, 1,806 mm wide, 1,590 mm high, and 2,646 mm wheelbase). However, it proposes a sporty aesthetic with a more pronounced coupe profile and design elements that shape a strong personality. Here we mention especially the front grille design called Dynamic Shield.
In fact, the name of the new compact SUV emphasizes the sporty identity too.
Mitsubishi chose to take the name Eclipse, which designated the popular coupe, adding the Cross term, which refers to the family SUV/crossover’s size and the versatile side of the car.

Of course, the European customers on which the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is banking on are very interested in the engine efficiency. Therefore, the Japanese model offers configurations of engines and transmissions typical for European SUVs. It offers a direct injection turbocharged gasoline engine with a displacement of 1.5 liters. It is mated to a CVT transmission, which has a Sport mode operation with 8 steps. A turbo diesel engine is also proposed with a displacement of 2.2 liters, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The electronically controlled AWD system complements the specifications that will recommend Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as a versatile model. The all-wheel drive system continuously manages the delivery of optimum torque to the rear wheels. And, the Super All-Wheel Control system (S-AWC), for the dynamics control, include, the Active Yaw Control function, which distribute torque and braking force for each wheel.

Last but not least, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ticked the modern demands in terms of infotainment and connectivity. As a result, the driver will be less distracted from the road thanks to the heads-up display which lists different information, including those from driving assistance systems.

At the top of the dashboard a large touch screen is placed that displays the menu for the infotainement system and can be controlled by touch-pad on the console between the front seats. Thanks to the iPhone connectivity through Apple CarPlay, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross drivers can use both the Siri system and touch screen to control navigation, to make phone calls, to read messages or listen to the desired music. Finally, thanks to Android Auto compatibility, the driver which uses Android smartphones can use voice commands to control Google Maps, Google Play, or other applications.
