Mitsubishi Canada will be entering 2021 with an updated and refreshed Eclipse Cross that will bring to Canadian drivers a refined and more elegant design and retuned to provide greater handling and control.
The new 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is part of Mitsubishi Motors larger transformation plans that will see a major transformation of the automaker’s entire vehicle line over the New Year.
The 2022 Eclipse Cross will sport a restyled exterior with extended front and rear overhangs, along with a new front facia design. This new Eclipse Cross will come with twin-oval headlamps that will sit where the previous Eclipse Cross had its fog lamps. The rear has also been redesigned to bring a larger rear window and contoured taillights.
The interior will be roomier, as the 2022 Eclipse Cross will get a bit of a size increase, and one gets a choice of leather, synthetic leather and fabric seats. The leather option also brings a heated steering wheel, as well as driver, front and rear passenger seat heaters.
The horizontally arranged instrument panel allows for a driver to easily find what they need without distractions. A larger infotainment screen is now part of the package as well – 8-inches, up from the previous 7-inches – and comes with improved touchscreen operability as well as convenient tuning and volume knobs. A first for Mitsubishi, TomTom navigation now comes included, as well as support for the popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto applications.
A 1.5-litre turbocharged, direct injection 4-clinder engine will sit under the hood and come with MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control) to improve fuel economy. The engine produces 152 HP @ 5,500 r.p.m. with 184 lb-ft of torque locked onto an 8-speed CVT with Sport Mode. Handling is improved with the electronically-controlled four-wheel-drive system that is combined with Mitsubishi’s S-AWS system.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross base ES S-AWC trim will start at $28,598; The SE S-AWC will come in at $31,218 and the SEL S-AWC level, will start at $34,218. The GT S-AWC level will come in at $36,998.
