Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Features we like

  • Oct 18, 2018

Mitsubishi has a good reputation in the automobile industry. It has given us vehicles like the Pajero, Outlander, and Montero Sport. Continuing its legacy forward, Mitsubishi came up with the Eclipse Cross. This SUV is available in three variants in the Middle East - GLX High line, GLX Medium line, and GLS High line. The Eclipse Cross price starts at AED 73,900. Following are some of the features of the Eclipse Cross that we like.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Attractive front fascia

You would agree with us on this. Mitsubishi has done a brilliant job in designing the Eclipse Cross. It’s super stylish, very modern, dynamic, and attractive. We love the way the front fascia has been put together. The sleek headlamps are accompanied by LED daytime running lights and together they present themselves beautifully. The chrome plated front grille gets two horizontal slats that just complete the front look of the SUV. We also like the way Mitsubishi has sorted out the design of the bumper.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross rear

Unique rear design

The rear end of the Eclipse Cross is quite unique because of the layout of the tail lights. There is a horizontal strip of light that divides the rear windscreen into two. It is a new and interesting concept, however, it is going to be either love it or hate it kind of design for a lot of people.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross side

Interesting side profile

Mitsubishi’s brainstorming about the Eclipse Cross’s design worked wonders. We’re glad to report that this SUV does not look great only from the front and rear, but also from the side as well. Mitsubishi has organised things in a such a manner that the side profile of the Eclipse Cross appears to be just the right amount of busy. We like the alloy wheel design that gets 225/55R18 tyres. Also, the chrome treatment on the periphery of the windscreens enhances the overall presence of the SUV. We also like the sharp crease or character line that cuts through the front and rear doors and merge into the tail light cluster.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross engine

1.5-litre engine

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross specs sheet reveals that powering it is a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that has been tuned in a state to churn out a total power of 150 hp at 5500 revs and generate a peak torque of 250 Nm that kicks in at 2000 to 3500 revs.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gearbox

The transmission on this one is an 8-speed CVT unit. The engine should be powerful enough to pull this gorgeous SUV to triple digit speeds very quickly. There is also Mitsubishi’s S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) that aids in providing you with a reliable and safe ride.

Interior theme and features

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Eclipse Cross looks very sporty from the outside and to continue that in the cabin as well, Mitsubishi decided to keep an all-black theme. There are a few touches of silver here and there to eliminate the boredom. Also, the chrome door handles add an extra bit of premiumness. We also like the centre console where the gear lever is located. It is very neatly done and is ergonomically placed within the reach of the driver. Near the gear lever is the Touchpad Controller which in itself is very satisfying to operate.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross interior

Mitsubishi has also provided with some interesting features like Head-up display, dual zone AC, Mitsubishi Multi Communication System with navigation support and for the enthusiasts, there is a set of paddle shifters. The steering wheel is available in a leather wrap as optional and there are some buttons mounted on it for various functions.

Safety features

It is good to know that Mitsubishi has provided a good number of safety features in the Eclipse Cross. We get Lane Departure Warning (LDW), miss acceleration prevention system, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake assist system, electric parking brake with auto hold function, cruise control, active stability control, hill start assist, electronic power steering, tyre pressure monitoring system. We also get to see dual airbags along with driver and passenger side curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag.
