    New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross – a distinctly impressive crossover

    by Mahesh Yadav on Sunday, Nov 26 2017

    Japanese automaker, Mitsubishi has already flaunted its new Eclipse Cross crossover at several international auto events. Now, the new compact crossover is ready to hit the global markets including the U.S market very soon. The fact that Mitsubishi brought back the Eclipse moniker in the form of a crossover instead of a sports coupe might not have gone down well with some, but that doesn’t make the new Eclipse Cross any less impressive. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is an exciting new vehicle that flaunts great styling, coupe-like silhouette, compact dimensions, great features and new powerful turbocharged engine. Mitsubishi is certainly hoping that the new Eclipse Cross will become its game changer. It is interesting to note that Mitsubishi’s existing product, the Outlander Sport has the almost same dimensions. Thus, one might wonder how the new Eclipse Cross is different and special.

    The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gets a very different front face which seems to be almost exclusive. It has a very individualistic new grille and headlight design. However, placed next to the Outlander Sport, the Eclipse Cross looks like an evolved avatar of the former. The Eclipse Cross might not be absolutely head-turning, but it is striking. It also has the patent Mitsubishi look. When its side profile is viewed, its roofline is not really like a coupe’s, as it looks in few pictures. Nevertheless, the C-pillar makes the Eclipse Cross look a whole lot sportier. The rear design is neat and nice, but its very short overhang makes it look front heavy.

    The Eclipse Cross gets attractive tail lights to facilitate a split rear window, which results in a very distinctive visual appeal. Mitsubishi’s different take on the rear design of the new Eclipse Cross has made it really different from the Outlander Sport, which has a pretty bland rear facade. The Outlander Sport is certainly not a bad looking vehicle from any angle, but it could do much better if it didn’t have its conventional tail lights and rear window design. In comparison, the Eclipse Cross is much more remarkable and its unique visual appeal ensures that it gets the onlookers attention whenever passing by. Mitsubishi has done a good job in making the Eclipse Cross attention grabbing without incorporating any quirky feature. There are is offbeat split opening as well, and the Cross’ tailgate opens up conventionally.

     

    When the cabin is concerned, the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers more style and attitude than that of the Outlander Sport. The Eclipse Cross’ interior is certainly not highly luxurious, but the Japanese company has focused in making the center console look more attractive. Most noteworthy changes have been endowed on the infotainment system. Unlike the Outlander Sport, the Eclipse Cross’ infotainment unit is not integrated into the centre console, but it gets a dashboard mounted display. Adding to the premium quotient, Mitsubishi has also incorporated a Lexus-type trackpad for controlling the infotainment system on the Eclipse Cross.

    The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross packs in a 1.5L turbocharged engine, but the exact power figures have not been revealed yet, just like the price list.
