Mitsubishi has unveiled the all-new Eclipse Cross that is set to premier at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Eclipse Cross will is bigger than the ASX but will sit below the Outlander in the brand’s model line-up. It’s coupe-SUV body style has an interesting, angular rear and a very unusual front grille (that kind of reminds us of a handheld vacuum cleaner’s opening). If the design looks familiar that’s because it’s based on the Mitsubishi XR-PHEV II concept, which was on display at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
The Eclipse Cross will come with a new 1.5-liter direct-injection, turbocharged petrol engine mated to a newly developed CVT transmission with eight-speed Sport Mode manual override. There will also be a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine with a new eight-speed auto box.
An electronically-controlled 4WD system will be standard on this SUV that is set to appear on showroom floors in 2018.
