2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Design & Interior – Video
The Eclipse Cross all-new compact SUV coupe will join MMC’s global lineup of crossover SUVs: the ASX*2 compact SUV and the Outlander and Outlander PHEV mid-size SUVs.
The Eclipse Cross is a fusion of sharp coupe looks and dynamic SUV mobility with signature Mitsubishi styling and performance.
Other distinguishing features are its design that motivates the driver to get out and go, connectivity that inspires new fun adventures, and all-wheel control technology which delivers an enjoyable, reassuring feel that elevates the driving experience.
Eclipse Cross uses an electronically-controlled 4WD system that feeds the optimum amount of torque to the rear wheels as required by the driving situation and surface conditions. MMC’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) integrated vehicle dynamics control system incorporates brake-activated AYC*5.
The addition of a 3-point strut tower brace at the front and the strategic use of structural bonding at the rear in particular have increased body rigidity. The tougher body and detail optimization of the suspension offer precise handling and superior vehicle stability.
The Eclipse Cross will be available in the United States with a new 1.5L direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine that is mated to a new CVT with 8-speed Sport Mode manual override.
*5: Active Yaw Control system manages the torque feed and brake force at individual rear wheels to help the vehicle behave as the driver intends, using information on steering angle, yaw rate, drive torque, brake force and wheel speed to accurately determine driver operation and vehicle behavior.
