Mitsubishi, which already has in its model range with a compact SUV as is the ASX, will debut in the Geneva motor show a new crossover the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. As already announced some days ago when the japanese constructor was showing us the first teasers confirming your name, the name Eclipse is giving a lot to talk about.
Very far away from those sports, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has decided to reuse that name to make us believe in the sportiness of this new todocamino.

In the section diesel we expect an engine 2.2 litres that will also be offered with the same transmission CVT of 8 alleged relationships. For his part, everything seems to indicate that both engines will be available with a system of traction to the four wheels.
