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 Eclipse compact sports car. Unlike the old Eclipse, however, the new Eclipse Cross is not assembled in the United States, as Mitsubishi closed its Diamond-Star Motors plant in Normal, Illinois back in February 2016. Instead, the new SUV is assembled in Japan, the home country of Mitsubishi.

Market

The Eclipse Cross is available as a model for 2018 in Japan, Australia and in United States from the beginning of 2018. It was released in Japan on March 1, 2018.

Advertising

Mitsubishi sponsored the ABC special 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.[6]
