Mitsubishi names new SUV the Eclipse Cross | New Release

The Eclipse's high-saturation red body color evokes the brilliance of the sun's halo flaring from behind the moon Mitsubishi said

You'll find these stories and more in today's auto news, right here at Motor Authority.

It will line up alongside the Mitsubishi ASX and Mitsubishi Outlander to broaden the brand's model range and introduce a whole new audience to Mitsubishi Motors, taking on crossover giants like the Nissan Qashqai.

Known as the Eclipse Cross, the new model will essentially be a production version of the eX Concept.

Now we can confirm it will be known as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

We've yet to see full pictures of the new vehicle, but from the dark images we do have, we can see some rather neat design touches, such as the sharp crease down the flanks that runs through the door handles all the way to the rear light clusters.


Mitsubishi said Tuesday the new vehicle will be called the Eclipse Cross in nods to the coupe that was sold in the US market and the new crossover utility segment that is all the rage.

The Eclipse Cross is expected to be offered with a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 2.2-litre diesel, as well as four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox - though a petrol-electric hybrid looks unlikely for now.

In showrooms the Eclipse Cross will sit between the ASX and Outlander models, both of which have recently undergone mild facelifts.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is dead; long live the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

That all might be a bit hyperbolic, but we're going reserve our judgement until the Eclipse Cross makes its official debut in Geneva from March 7 through 19.
