The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross loses the characteristic tailgate with the split rear window but now has a plug-in hybrid variant.
Unveiled in 2017, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a crossover with an original design and dynamic driving. Today the restyling is unveiled. Among the new features are the subtle daytime running lights that are now located in the upper part of the front, while the main headlights are located further down. The 2021 edition of the Eclipse Cross has a renewed fascia and modifications to the all-black grille (trim the two chrome strips at the top). The chrome friezes on the sides of the grille also change: in the lower part, they are thicker and wavier.
GOODBYE TO THE SPOILER
The stylistic changes are more marked on the rear, which has been completely redesigned. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross loses the characteristic split rear window to improve visibility in reverse, one of the weak points of the current model. The headlights, also vertically developed, have the lower part extended in width, and the tailgate also changes: the Mitsubishi logo is located higher and there is a new strip above the plate. The fascia is also new.
Inside there is a new multimedia system, with a larger screen (8 “instead of 7”) and new controls: at the base of the display, there are two rotors for adjusting the volume and frequency of the radio. In addition, the screen is located closer to the driver, which makes it easier to enter commands. The renewed Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross also lacks the touchpad between the front seats, the tactile surface from which some functions of the previous multimedia system were managed: in its place, there is an object holder.
The renewed Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be offered with the well-known 4-cylinder turbo 1.5 petrol engine, which is flanked by an unprecedented hybrid engine with rechargeable batteries from the outside, of which no details have been announced. The redesigned crossover should arrive in Europe since the Mitsubishi announced its intention to withdraw from this market.
