The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is further confirmation that more and more car manufacturers are reusing the names of their successful sports cars to promote vehicles for city use, as Ford has reused the Mustang name to bring the EV Mustang Mach E to life. Presented in 2017, the Eclipse Cross is a medium-sized SUV (4,40 x 1,80 meters) with a very extravagant design: the rear, in particular, has a Coupe-style shape in which the rear lights take on a helix shape and then join just above the trunk. Inside there is enough space for five people, and the infotainment is of medium level, while the perceived quality is not the best, but still adequate considering the reference market. One strength of this vehicle is its significant resistance: in the Euro NCAP crash tests, it obtains the maximum score of five stars; the Japanese brand often shows this characteristic in its advertisements. The safety measures adopted as standard include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Emergency Braking. There are two versions available from 2017, one of 152 and one of 163HP. Both are petrol and equip a turbocharger. In the facelift 2021 version (pictured) some general aesthetic variations make the rear more linear, and the 163HP engine leaves room for a more performing 188HP MIVEC 2.4 Hybrid. With an affordable price, the Cross fits into the Mitsubishi crossovers range between the ASX and the Outlander.
