Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

The latest addition to Mitsubishi’s SUV lineup, the Eclipse Cross is slotted between the seven-passenger Outlander and the subcompact RVR. The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross delivers up to 152 horsepower and a solid 184 lb.-ft. of torque through a 1.5-litre direct-injection turbo engine. Additionally, every trim comes standard with Mistubishi’s proprietary Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drivetrain. What sets the Eclipse Cross apart from its siblings is its bold design language, which leverages sharp lines and a muscular profile. Sharp headlights and imposing front fog lights flank the dynamic shield grille on its front fascia, and uniquely shaped LED taillights extend across the tailgate. Its interior elements, such as the centre console, freestanding seven-inch multimedia touchscreen and gear selector are accented with silver detailing. For added safety and convenience, the 2019 Eclipse Cross’s display can also be operated by a touchpad controller located adjacent to the gear selector.
