The new Eclipse Cross will launch in Canada in the first quarter of 2021.
The front end adopts an evolved version of Mitsubishi’s signature Dynamic Shield design concept. A new front bumper guard and refreshed light layout completes the front design.
The silhouette continues to the rear with a redesigned hatch and rear window. Eclipse Cross’ three-dimensional taillights extend upwards and inwards.
Inside the cabin, a new black interior with silver accents and light gray leather seats creates a more sophisticated look. Door trims also coordinate with the car seat color.
A new 8-inch smartphone-link display audio (SDA) system comes standard, giving the driver a better view of the information and easier operation. The screen has been moved closer to the driver and front-seat passenger for ease of use, and now incorporates volume and turning knobs for fast reference. The touchpad that was previously used for multiple functions has been removed to allow for more storage space on the center console.
Engineered For Eco-Friendly and Dynamic Performance
The Eclipse Cross is fitted with the company’s 1.5-litre MIVEC direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A thoroughly modern design, the MIVEC engine is all-aluminum for light weight.
Using a compact turbocharger reduces fuel consumption but also minimizes turbo lag, while the combination of direct fuel injection and turbocharging delivers greater efficiency at all roads and engine speeds. Paired with an eight-speed sports mode continuously variable transmission (CVT), the new Eclipse Cross optimizes low fuel consumption.
