The Mitsubishi Eclipse is back! High, high. Don’t celebrate too much. Mitsubishi Eclipse is a name well respected within the japanese brand, and this appellation is used between the years 1989 and 2012 to call up to four generations of a model sporting that managed to sell over of 1.4 million units in all the world during those 23 years.
Now the name is changed to Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, giving life to a new car-type SUV for the brand. Yes, an SUV with the name Eclipse. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has already left to see some other image teaser weeks ago, just like it does now. The new SUV that we see in the images you will uncover completely the next month during the Geneva motor show, the most important event of the year on news of the motor world.
This model will take the design lines of earlier prototypes as the Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Concept, and the Mitsubishi eX Concept. Therefore, this combination of line name and makes sense that the japanese manufacturer will reveal a model todocamino with certain air of sportiness; a sporty feel which, probably, appears only in its aesthetics and not so much in its dynamic behavior. As has been confirmed by the brand, the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be a compact SUV, including the ASX and Outlander, that shall fight against the Qashqai, Ateca and company.
The signing of the three diamonds, he says, in his statement, that during the presentation at the Geneva motor show released also a new paint specific for this model in red color, inspired by the hues that can be seen during a solar eclipse. We have No choice but to wait a few weeks until the event opens on the 7th of march. We wonder if you need to wear protective glasses because of the reflection of this new painting…
