Mitsubishi Shows Off the 2018 Eclipse Cross Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show

The latest mid-size SUV dubbed Eclipse Sport was recently unveiled by Mitsubishi ahead of its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Eclipse Cross is considered to be a part of carmaker’s ambitious SUV-2021 plan sitting actually between Outlander and ASX crossover. Full specs and details are expected to be revealed at Geneva, along with pricing.

The SUV hits the C-segment operating standard electronically-controlled all-wheel-drive along with two engine choices. A 1.5-liter inline-four turbocharged petrol engine is paired with an eight-speed manual CVT gearbox; a 2.2-liter turbo diesel is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and will be offered optionally. To increase rigidity, Mitsubishi added a three-point tower brace at the front, as well as improved suspension. The exterior is all about aggressiveness playing with such design cues as chunky rear fenders and the eye-popping branded shield grille.
