Here in the United States, we have gotten to enjoy the sophisticated Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for over a year. However, in other places in the world, it’s just getting started. In fact, Mitsubishi just released the Eclipse Cross in South Africa.
The South African model will be similar to the model
available in North America, except it will only come with two trims choices:
one with front-wheel drive and the other with Super All-Wheel Control. Here in
the U.S., it has five trim levels. Another difference that South Africa has
left-hand traffic, so the driver and front passenger seat are switched.
South Africans will find the Eclipse Cross comes
well-equipped with features like leather upholstery, a head-up display,
Bluetooth, voice controls, keyless entry, and a 7-inch touchscreen display.
Buyers can also add on a built-in navigation system. Standard safety features
include traction and stability control, hill start assist, and anti-lock
In the United States, the Eclipse Cross comes with a beefier
warranty. In South Africa, it will only come with a 3-year/100,000-kilometer
warranty and a 5-year/90,000-kilometer service plan. In the U.S., we get to
enjoy a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile New

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!
