Here's The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi has taken the wraps off the 2018 Eclipse Cross crossover ahead of next week’s slated reveal. The new crossover that features a throwback name will slot into the hot sub-compact crossover segment, competing with the likes of the Nissan Rogue Sport.

Back when most of us were kids the Mitsubishi Eclipse was a popular coupe. However, Mitsubishi is basically done with coupes and sedans in today’s world as everyone wants a crossover or SUV. As such, the nameplate is returning on this and throwing the word “Cross” behind it. That said, the Eclipse Cross is sort of coupe-ish in appearance with such a steep roofline and radical looking C-pillar.

Complete details of the Eclipse Cross will finally arrive next week, but for now we do have some specifications of the U.S. bound version. In North America the Eclipse Cross will be powered exclusively by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, mated to a CVT automatic. The specifications of said engine are still unknown at this time.

The Eclipse Cross will arrive in U.S. dealerships

    It just looks like a jacked up Civic.

    Wouldnt surprise me if Nissan did the same and slapped the Z name on a POS CUV.

    That rear end treatment is ugly


    The whole thing is ugly. Japanese car companies just end up putting out weird looking stuff when they try not to be bland.

    It will probably sell in the snow belt because its cheap and has all wheel drive. That's how the rather mundane Outlander Sport survives.

    imho the hatch itself, hiding under the obnoxious 'spoil(er)ing-TL', has an interesting-attractive curvature to it...

    ...just EVERYthing else is over-wrought/UGGly



    I can't imagine that the rear spoiler helps the visibility at all.

    Front isn't bad but the back is horrific

    Personally, I don't see it as any worse that any of the latest "Transformers" from Honda/ Acura or Toyota/Lexus.
