Mitsubishi unveils new Eclipse Cross
The latest model in the company's range of SUVs, the Eclipse Cross is set to be unveiled at the Geneva Show next week, before going on sale early next year.
It will be sold alongside the company’s existing SUVs, the ASX and Outlander, and the styling makes it very clear that the new car shares its genes with those models. At the front, for example, the Eclipse also features what Mitsubishi calls the ‘Dynamic Shield’, with silver details either side of the darker grille. However, where the new model differs is in its more coupe-like profile, and, at the rear end, the lights run right across the rear window, effectively dividing it into two parts.
The system is controlled by a touchpad, but also supports the integration of smartphones by incorporating both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Buyers will have a choice of two engines – a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol unit and a 2.2-litre diesel – and all models will feature an electronically controlled four-wheel drive system.
Full details of the range and its specifications are yet be announced, but what Mitsubishi has confirmed is that the car will go on sale early next year.
