The upcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is getting further upgrades. The latest spy shots are correctly showing what type of updates will this crossover gain. As we all expected, a two-door sports coupe version won’t make the production. That means the words “Eclipse” and “Cross” are exclusively tied to a crossover model. Back to the spy photos, the Eclipse Cross model is wearing plenty of exciting styling cues.
Once it arrives, this crossover will compete in the compact segment. There will be room for five passengers, and the design will look truly unique. The interior provides a high level of comfort and plenty of room. Unfortunately, its engine lineup is still not available. In our opinion, this crossover should remain in terms of performance.
2021 Eclipse Cross Spy Shots
The new batch of spy shots is available, and we must admit that they are looking fascinating. This isn’t what everyone expected to see, for sure. New 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will gain plenty of novelties, and it will look sporty and stylish at the same time. The front fascia comes with tweaked headlights. However, this is the only change upfront. Moreover, Mitsubishi’s two-window layout is gone. Now, this crossover is available with a single rear window that is significantly larger.
In the back, an integrated LED strip is not available anymore. The taillights are now placed horizontally. On top of that, the rear bumper is larger, along with the diffuser. However, the best part of the new Eclipse Cross is its new and larger roof spoiler. Thanks to these changes, the new crossover looks more stylish and more traditional.
Inside the cabin, the next 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will look very upscale. Moreover, the level of comfort is high, and there is plenty of room for everyone. This crossover provides a room for five passengers, and upper trim levels are very luxurious. The layout of the interior is simple, and all of the controls are easy to use.
Mitsubishi offers a standard 7-inch touchscreen that also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Still, if you need more luxury, the range-topping trim level is the model for you. It comes with leather upholstery, sunroof, and newest Rockford Fosgate sound system.
Engine Lineup is Unchanged
Most likely, the forthcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will continue to ride on its current engine lineup. Depending on the market, you will get either 1.5-liter gasoline or a 2.2-liter diesel engine. Gasoline turbocharged powertrain is available in the United States, and it delivers 152 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
This engine provides 1,500 pounds of towing capacity, and it offers 27 mpg combined. The rest of the markets will use diesel version. However, some reports are writing about the new electrified variant. Most likely, it will be a hybrid rather than an all-electric model.
2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Price and Release Date
As for the price, the new 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will cost around $25,500. Moreover, this crossover will make a debut in the coming months or even weeks. Shortly after that, Mitsubishi will begin with the sales.
Most likely, 2021 Eclipse Cross will hit the markets this summer. We are still waiting for a hybrid version that is just speculation at the moment.
