The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a crossover between Outlander and Outlander Sport. While these two form Mitsubishi failed to make the mark in the very competitive market, it will b interesting to see what new does Eclipse Cross has in store. As far as the design is concerned, the vehicle already seems to be far more impressive.
According to Mitsubishi, the new car will be powered by a 1.5 litre direct injected, turbocharged engine. The transmission will be automatic, varying according to the tuning. However, it does also offer a manual override mode. The aesthetics of the new version make it a unique commodity among its substitutes which are already operating in the market.
Having said that, the downward sloping design of the rear window does seem like a bit of a letdown. Moreover, a line that cuts the rear hatch glass of the car midway would distort the driver’s view. As much as it is an innovative move in the styling, it might not be a great idea as far as practicality is concerned.
Coming to the interior, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross features a considerable amount of changes. There is an 8-inch screen placed at the centre of the dashboard. The infotainment screen supports both Apply Car Play and Android Auto. The major issue here is that you have to control it by dragging your finger across which might not be the most comfortable thing while you are driving.
In addition to all this, the buyers are likely to be sceptic due to the disappointing performance of Mitsubishi’s previous two models. We hope that the Eclipse Cross proves all these concerns wrong and injects some much-needed business into the company. A clearer picture would be presented by its testing which is schedule for the end of the running year.
