2019 Eclipse Cross
If you've ever longed to stare more directly into the beauty of an eclipse, look no further than an all-new Mitsubishi model that radiates equal wonder -- the 2019 Eclipse Cross. With striking design, thrilling performance and advanced technology, this dynamic and distinctive Mitsubishi model leaves other crossovers in the dust. Arriving in Spring 2019, this all-new SUV is currently available to pre-order from our DELRAY Mitsubishi dealership near West Palm Beach, FL.
It's difficult to figure out where to begin when outlining the exceptional features of the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The new Eclipse Cross splits the size difference between the larger Outlander and the smaller Outlander Sport and aims to be more athletic than either. Its design is driven by the same extroverted ethos as the Toyota C-HR and the Mazda CX-3, although this Mitsubishi is a size larger and definitely roomier inside than those models. Its lively exterior profile consists of stylish coupe lines and stunning LED accents, creating an overall visual package that shines with sporty playfulness.
According to Nathan Berg, senior product manager for Mitsubishi Motors North America, the project was inspired by a desire to bring vehicles in the mold of the BMW X4 to the realm of mainstream crossovers. “[The] Eclipse Cross really appeals to a much different mind-set [than the two Outlander models], somebody who wants a vehicle that really looks good before anything else,” he explained. This high-end design extends to the cabin of the 2019 Eclipse Cross, where a bevy of comfort perks and technology innovations await you. Inside, the dash has a bisected, cockpit-style layout with a lot of bright work. The driver interface has two features of special note. Top trim levels include a head-up display that tucks away when it’s not being used, and the infotainment system in all but the standard ES includes a 7.0-inch tablet-like display that sits atop the dash. The latter supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and will feel instantly intuitive to all. What won’t feel as straightforward is the touchpad used to control the system that’s set into the center console; it combines attributes of Lexus’s trackpad and Audi’s MMI system.
Your senses will heighten even more when you first lay eyes on this crossover's panoramic sunroof, and your passengers will enjoy perks such as rear heated seats. Once you press down on the gas pedal, you'll take advantage of the impressive power output.
Perhaps more important is the new turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four under the hood. Part of a new engine family, it makes 152 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 184 lb-ft of torque from 2000 to 3500 rpm. The engine is smooth and sounds pleasant, pulling without complaint from about 1500 rpm and really coming to life by 2500 rpm. Moving the shift lever over to the left into its manual gate gives the ability to lock in one of eight preset ratios. An Eco mode button further softens accelerator inputs.
The Eclipse Cross doesn’t miss a beat in terms of seating space and cargo-carrying practicality. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat slides fore and aft through nearly eight inches of travel to apportion space between rear legroom and luggage capacity, and the rake of the rear seatback is adjustable.
Mitsubishi Connect will be making its debut in the Eclipse Cross, offering an all-you-can-handle buffet of connectivity, including remote climate-control preconditioning, a car finder, parental controls, automatic collision notification, and emergency assistance. Besides being app based, it can be paired with Amazon Alexa devices and the Google Assistant.
