New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross named and revealed

New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross named and revealed

At the same time, rumors circulated the vehicle would bring back the Eclipse badge that previously adorned the automaker's sport compact auto, which was popular as an entry-level enthusiast auto until its fourth generation and was discontinued in 2011 after a 22-year run.

As is nearly always the case, the Eclipse Cross is more aesthetically conservative than its preceding concept; the XR-PHEV's hidden door handles, for example, have been replaced with conventional items on the Eclipse Cross.

Mitsubishi has already previewed a new compact SUV destined for the Geneva motor show next month, but now the company has just confirmed it will be called the Eclipse Cross.

"Eclipse is a word used to describe an astronomical event".

Mitsubishi has unveiled the name for its new CUV as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.


The Eclipse Cross is expected to be offered with a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 2.2-litre diesel, as well as four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox - though a petrol-electric hybrid looks unlikely for now. It will be revealed in full at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The Eclipse Cross is a four-door crossover meant to slot in between the Outlander and the Outlander Sport models in Mitsu's SUV-heavy lineup.

The name is probably not too familiar with Aussie motorists, but it is derived from the U.S. market Eclipse, which is a two-door sports vehicle.

The Eclipse was last sold here for the 2012 model year.
