The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is 4.4m long and plays in the same yard as the Toyota C-HR, only 4cm shorter and also proud representative of the SUV coupe segment. On the other hand, the proposal of the diamond brand simply adopts 100% thermal blocks, unlike the C-HR that dared to hybrid.
At the head of the line is an unprecedented 1.5 turbo gasoline 150 hp associated with a CVT box. Customers will also be able to opt for a 2.2 diesel 150 hp but also coupled with a real automatic transmission with 8 gears. Both engines will be delivered with the S-AWC all-wheel drive.
Its profile is distinguished by its sharp shapes evoking a “cut utility”, a concept very popular among builders. This cuneiform look puts on a belt of body raised in the back, a very arched tailgate with a steeply inclined bezel, prominent wings and ultra-short overhangs.
Obviously, the prices have not yet been disclosed by Mitsubishi who will present the Eclipse Cross in first premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.
Another novelty of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the new 1.5 MIVEC Turbo petrol engine, coupled with a new CVT transmission with a manual 8-speed Sport mode. The 2.2-liter supercharged common rail turbocharged diesel engine developed specifically for the Eclipse Cross is coupled with a new 8-speed automatic transmission, which is also available on the Eclipse Cross.
