Mitsubishi names new compact SUV

14 February 2017

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced today that it has chosen Eclipse Cross to be the nomenclature for its new compact SUV model that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show, on fromĀ 7-19 March 2017.


The Eclipse derives its name from the MMC’s popular specialty coupe model sold in the U.S. from 1989, while Cross is obviously short for crossover.

The high-saturation red body colour specifically developed for the model is meant “to evoke the brilliance of the prominence seen during the total solar eclipse.”

Mitsubishi describes the Eclipse Cross SUV as having a ‘beautiful, dynamic form’. At this point there are no details on the drivetrain.
