The Japanese chose a design that is already known at the Lamborghini Espada of 1968 and the Citroën C4 of 2002. The very fluently designed rear window offers similarly sparse rear view as the two-door Range Rover Evoque, so a second, almost vertically arranged window was placed underneath, which is only interrupted by a cross-rib spoiler lip with third brake light.
The visibility through the rear-view mirror is improved so much, but only in good weather conditions, because a rear window wiper is attached only to the upper part of the window. Another reason for the kink in the tailgate is in the space utilization. Thanks to this construction, the Eclipse Cross achieves at least a trunk volume of 448 liters – a moderate value, which corresponds approximately to that of the 18 centimeters shorter VW T-Roc. Helpful, however, is the rear bench seat, which can be moved up to 20 centimeters along its length, and the steplessly adjustable rear seat back, which increases the storage volume to up to 1122 liters.

The two-part rear window extends the driver’s field of vision and sets an independent character feature in the exterior design. There is also a clear dichotomy in the interior: along the horizontal axis, the upper half of the cockpit takes care of the driver’s information. In the lower area, the controls are arranged.
