The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is scheduled to be the next addition to the Japanese brand’s lineup. The new model brings a streamlined look and slots between the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport crossovers. The upcoming crossover will also feature top technologies. All of that and more resulted in it being shortlisted for the 2017 Golden Steering Wheel Awards.
Although its United Kingdom launch is still five months out, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has been shortlisted in the Small SUV category. Votes can be cast by going to www.autoexpress.co.uk/gsw.
The Golden Steering Wheel Awards point out the best new models among five popular categories. Once a vehicle is nominated, drivers are allowed to vote for their favorite. Vehicles that get the most votes become finalists and are then put through a rigorous test by judges from Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. The vehicle that performs the best takes the coveted award.
“The Eclipse Cross has generated a huge amount of interest and this nomination proves just how eagerly awaited it is as well as the impact it is destined to have on its segment,” said Lance Bradley, Managing Direct of Mitsubishi Motors in the United Kingdom.
We here at Coronet Mitsubishi of Peru can’t wait to see the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in person!
Mitsubishi pulled out all the stops with the unveiling of the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at the Geneva Motor Show. A revival of the old sports car’s name, the Eclipse Cross comes to the market as a four-door crossover, but the Japanese automaker clearly has much more planned. Even so, the all-new Eclipse Cross has the makings of a hit vehicle all on its own.
The new crossover will land between the Outlander Sport and standard Outlander, when it comes to size. The stylish model boasts a refined roofline that can easily compete with premium coupe SUVs that are currently on the market. Drivers will experience Mitsubishi’s advanced all-wheel drive system to the fullest.
The new Eclipse Cross lands with a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While there’s no word on if we’ll see it here in the United States, there’s also an optional 2.2-liter diesel engine.
A sporty engine beneath the hood of such a stylish crossover is just the beginning. If the vehicle is a hit, Mitsubishi is considering adding a two-door model to the lineup. High sales could also lead to a revival of the Ralliart nameplate.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is scheduled for a global launch sometime in early 2018. Here at Coronet Mitsubishi, we’re pumped for the arrival of the new vehicle from Mitsubishi!
