The Eclipse name with be returning to the Mitsubishi lineup just in time for the 2018 model year. This is not the same old Eclipse sports car that ended production in 2011. No, this new model will be known as the Eclipse Cross and it will be a new compact crossover.
While this new Eclipse may not be the same as the old one, there is expectation that the name alone will evoke the spirit of the Eclipse into this new crossover. In a statement from Mitsubishi: “The Eclipse Cross’s beautiful, dynamic form serves to bring about the same sense of excitement and inspiration as the diamond ring seen immediately before and after a total solar eclipse does.”
The Eclipse Cross is planning to make its international debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next month. What are your thoughts on what we’ve seen so far? Let us know in the comments and make sure to stop by Pete Moore Mitsubishi today!
