Following a handful of teasers, Mitsubishi has released images of the Eclipse Cross just a few days short of its arrival at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It is a new SUV that will enter the Mitsubishi hierarchy between the ASX and Outlander. It is a revival of sorts, well mostly for the name as it carries on the badge which previously adorned a two-door sporty coupe that was sold from the late 1990s to 2008.
The images reveal, as we had suspected, a coupe SUV design quite similar to the XR-PHEV II concept that was showcased in 2013. Noticeable elements for the car include the large Mitsubishi family face, flared wheel arches and Mitsubishi specific tail lamps.
Step inside the cabin and you are greeted by a combination of a black and silver adorning a familiar Mitsubishi cabin. Standard features for this car include climate control, a free standing display for the infotainment system, foldable seats with leather upholstery and probably electrically adjustable front seats.
It will be offered with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine or a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The former can be had with a CVT while the diesel is offered with an eight-speed AT. The company has said that 4WD will be on offer but we are not yet sure if it’s a standard fitment or will be an optional extra.
The car will be showcased alongside the ASX, Outlander and LC200 at the Mitsubishi stall during the motor show.
