Mitsubishi debuts its first brand-new model in several years, but the company has extracted its past for the new name of small crossover: Eclipse Cross. No, it shares nothing beyond the badge with the Eclipse sports coupe and convertible that sometimes strengthened Mitsubishi’s reputation for its performance before disappearing in 2012. Instead, Eclipse Cross is a small, performance-oriented. SUV was sized similarly to the new Jeep Compass and the Subaru Crosstrek.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross shares its 105.1-inch wheelbase with both the current Outlander and Outlander exterior passages, although the new model’s 173.4-inch length is well in-between. Mitsubishi says that the next Sport will decrease a bit and that the next Outlander will grow, better spaced all three, but for now there is plenty of overlap.
Inside, there are clear lines on the dashboard. The infotainment screen is of the floating variety (and it has a touchpad), and a brilliant cut rides the center console from the dashboard to the rear. There is also a lot of physical equipment available for HVAC settings. A main screen consists of an extra piece of glass above the gauge group. Speaking of infotainment, its system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The main screen completes the table screen by displaying the information of the various safety systems of the car, as well as the speed of the vehicle and the directions of navigation.
The first engine is a new 1.5 turbo light fuel. The current (if modified) diesel diesel from Mitsubishi will follow. We have tried the 4×4 version of turbo gasoline, which comes with a CVT automatic transmission mandatory, although the one with faux modes tiered for support. The front driver receives a manual, and the 2.2 diesel has an appropriate eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is expected to arrive in Europe this fall, with US sales starting in early 2018. The price has not yet been announced, but it should be between the $ 20,000 Outlander Sport and the Outlander of $ 24,390.
