Mitsubishi’s newest arrival is turning heads with a powerful design that speaks of power, proficiency, and, most importantly, fun. This crossover’s aesthetic is backed up by hardware, as it earned a Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design.* That focus on style extends to the comfortable interior, which boasts a clean layout, premium materials, and a flexible second row that can be adjusted for up to nine configurations.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross isn’t just fun to look at; it’s also a lot of fun to drive thanks to its standard 1.5-liter MIVEC direct-injection turbo engine, which delivers a balanced output of 152 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. The Eclipse Cross is even more fun to drive when optioned with available Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), which provides responsive performance for off-road travels and added confidence when tackling inclement roads.
There’s enough to love about the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that it’s frankly a bit difficult to put it all into words. The best way to experience what the Eclipse Cross can offer you is to experience it firsthand.
