In September, Mitsubishi previewed updates to its latest crossover, the Eclipse Cross, . We may inform the physique had been up to date considerably, however we weren’t certain of specifics on the time. Properly, now it is time to be taught a bit extra.
Mitsubishi on Thursday unveiled the 2022 Eclipse Cross SUV. The most important updates to this little utility automobile come by the use of styling. The entrance finish appears rather more aggressive, with a darkish grille flanked by two sturdy chrome trim items that join the working lights to the decrease fascia. Out again, the sunshine bar spanning the width of the automobile has been eradicated in favor of two distinct taillights that look much less… I do not know, bizarre?
The cabin is extra evolution than revolution, with small tweaks reminiscent of a door trim that now matches the colour of the seats. Crucial addition is a brand new 8-inch show that rests atop the dashboard, and even higher, it is commonplace throughout the lineup. The show itself is now nearer to the motive force for simpler entry, and a bodily quantity knob is all the time a welcome addition. The touchpad on the middle console has been banished to the ether, giving the middle console a smidge of additional storage.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross rocks the identical powertrain as earlier than, consisting of a 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 making 152 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which marries to a repeatedly variable transmission with eight simulated “gears.” A plug-in hybrid variant shall be made accessible in some markets, however Mitsubishi says it has no plans to convey the PHEV to the US. Disgrace, that.
The brand new Eclipse Cross will make its debut in Australia and New Zealand in November, and the US will get a crack at it within the first quarter of 2021.
