Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross IS the name for Mitsubishi's SUV in the middle


The design may be all-new, but the Eclipse name most certainly isn't: Mitsubishi sold the two-door Eclipse coupe (below) in the USA from 1989 to 2012.

Expect more details on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to be revealed during the car's appearance in Geneva next month.

While the overwhelming success of the plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV has been welcome, the Eclipse Cross is expected to provide dealers with a credible rival to mainstream crossovers such as the segment-leading Nissan Qashqai and the recently launched SEAT Ateca. Meanwhile, Mitsubishi Motors has announced the name of the all-new SUV, christened as the Eclipse Cross.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will debut at the Geneva Motor Show (Hall 2, Stand 2130) on March 7 2017, finished in a deep gloss red metallic, a new colour specially developed for this new model using an innovative painting process.

In showrooms the Eclipse Cross will sit between the ASX and Outlander models, both of which have recently undergone mild facelifts. The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross should be bigger than the Outlander Sport (called the RVR in Canada) and smaller than the Outlander.

Mitsubishi later pulled the plug on the entire plant, shuttering it a year ago.
