Another Eclipse: Mitsubishi's New Crossover Wears a Familiar Name

15 February, 2017, 00:54 | Author: Abraham Jackson

The Eclipse Cross will be part of a trio of new crossovers that the automaker plans to bring to markets worldwide, focusing on that hot segment instead of its more familiar coupes, sedans and light trucks.

The Eclipse Cross will enter MMC's SUV range as a sporty member, alongside the ASX and Outlander. Meanwhile, Mitsubishi Motors has announced the name of the all-new SUV, christened as the Eclipse Cross. Mitsubishi is keen to highlight the Eclipse Cross is "coupe-like" with "highly chamfered contours" and a "distinctive V-line in the rear quarter".

A new Mitsubishi crossover will wear the familiar nameplate when it makes its debut next month at the Geneva auto show.

'The Batman' Has Found a New Director
Fingers crossed for The Batman to start production by 2017, especially considering how fast they found their new director. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give.

But it looks like it will have to do that without being overly innovative, as it seems Mitsubishi isn't going to offer a hybrid Eclipse Cross, but a choice of conventional petrol and diesel engines. Details on when the Mitsubishi Cross Eclipse will be coming to the United Kingdom have not yet been revealed.

It's believed that the new Eclipse Cross SUV will take some inspiration from the Mitsubishi XR-PHEV concept, which was previously shown at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Bold expansion plans for Mitsubishi's crossover line-up are expected to see the Eclipse Cross followed within two years by a smaller sister model targeting the likes of the Nissan Juke, and including a full-electric drivetrain.
