  • Blanket/Clothes – Having an extra set of clothes is particularly important, especially if you plan on getting dirty to begin with. Drivers in colder climates will benefit from warm clothes and a blanket in the even that they break down on the side of the road. An extra set of clothes could also help in non-emergency situations as well.
  • Flashlight and Batteries – Getting caught in the dark isn’t ideal for anyone, especially if you have a problem with your vehicle’s charging system. Stow a flashlight and extra batteries, just in case. Being able to see and signal a passing car for help is essential for any modern driver.
  • Medical Supplies – Patching up a small wound, even temporarily, could stave off an emergency until you reach a doctor. Include gauze, bandages, pain relievers, and hand sanitizer in your first aid kit in case someone does get injured on the road.

New 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Bows in Geneva

Mitsubishi has been teasing a new SUV since January and now it’s finally arrived! The Japanese automaker showed off the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at the Geneva Motor Show. The Eclipse Cross boasts a sporty, streamlined design and is a prime example of just what Mitsubishi’s designers are capable of.

While it bears the name of the automaker’s discontinued sports car, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will have a slot between the Outlander Sport and Outlander models. We first saw the Eclipse Cross in the form of the XR-PHEV Concept in 2013.

The all-new SUV boasts a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission that churns out 160 hp. Drivers can also opt for a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission instead. That engine, along with a PHEV powertrain, will launch later on.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will come with four-wheel drive and Active Yaw Control, a performance feature that launched on the Lancer Evolution sedan.

The interior brings a screen on the dash with a head-up display and touchpad controller. The new SUV also features 60/40 split rear seats and an interior appointed with silver and black accents.

We here at Biggers Mitsubishi can’t wait for the arrival of the new Eclipse Cross!
