The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover SUV produced by Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors since 2017. It was previewed by the XR-PHEV and XR-PHEV II concepts, revealed in 2013 and 2015. The production version was first introduced at the 87th Geneva Motor Show in March 2017.[4][5] It slots between the RVR/ASX/Outlander Sport and Outlander in Mitsubishi's crossover lineup.

The name of this vehicle originates from the unrelated compact sports car, the Eclipse. Unlike the Eclipse, however, the Eclipse Cross is not assembled in the United States, as Mitsubishi closed its Diamond-Star Motors plant in Normal, Illinois in February 2016. Instead, the SUV is assembled in Japan.

Markets

The Eclipse Cross is available as a model for 2018 in Japan, Australia and the United States from the beginning of 2018. It was released in Japan on March 1, 2018. It was also released in Mexico in the beginning of February 2019.[6] In Mexico, it is offered with the trim levels GLX, GLS and Limited.[citation needed]

In Indonesia, the Eclipse Cross was revealed on July 9, 2019, and launched on July 18, 2019 at the 27th Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show. The Indonesian market Eclipse Cross is only available in Ultimate trim level, in three exterior colour options: Red Diamond, Silky White and Amethyst Black.

For 2020 model year in the North American model, the Eclipse Cross received several changes. The base ES model received redesigned 16-inch alloy wheels and the LE model replaced the previous SP trim level. All trim levels are also available in front-wheel drive configuration, whereas only the base ES trim was available in front-wheel drive configuration for 2019.[7]

Advertising

Mitsubishi sponsored the special on ABC about the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, including photographing the Eclipse Cross along with the eclipse. On that same day, the Eclipse Cross was also shown for the first time on television on Good Morning America.[8]
