The Redesigned Eclipse Cross Is on Its Way to Hampton Mitsubishi

Recently, Mitsubishi Motors released a preview of its redesigned Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, the very popular compact crossover SUV. We at Hampton Mitsubishi are excited to have it in stock soon and want to share a preview of it with you.

The new direction of the 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a reflection of Mitsubishi’s prioritization of modern, intelligent, and efficient designs.

The crossover SUV sports many changes you’re sure to like. Rear visibility is improved thanks to a redesigned hatch and rear window shape. The sleek front end is influenced by the brand’s Dynamic Shield design style, merging allure with function. Interior updates include a new infotainment center with a detailed 8-inch screen with smartphone-link capability.

A Eclipse Cross PHEV model will be launching also, which uses electric recharging to let you drive short distances on electricity only before switching to gasoline. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV can help stretch your dollar so you can save money at the pump.

If you live and commute in Lafayette, Louisiana, the new Eclipse Cross is worth test-driving. Hampton Mitsubishi will soon have the compact crossover SUV, which is built to incorporate coupe-like qualities. The new Eclipse Cross is expected to arrive here in the first three months of 2021.

Eclipse to Eclipse Cross: The Beloved Car Becomes a New Mitsubishi Crossover

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a modern take on an iconic Mitsubishi sedan: the Eclipse. While the Eclipse Cross and the Eclipse might sound like similar models, there are some important distinctions between them. The Eclipse Cross bears the nameplate of the performance-oriented Mitsubishi sedan, but it bears a crossover design.

The Eclipse, a sport compact car that combined versatile design and performance while still remaining affordable, was offered from 1989 to 2012. A favorite among sports car enthusiasts, the Eclipse was eventually discontinued to make room for newer models.  Now, the Eclipse nameplate is returning in the form of the Eclipse Cross.

Although the Eclipse Cross takes its name from the Eclipse, it has a bold crossover design, spacious seating for five people, and an impressive fuel-sipping powertrain. The 2020 Eclipse Cross averages 29 mpg on the highway , and the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine also pairs with available Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) to optimize handling on tough terrain.*

The new Mitsubishi crossover also brings a range of smart amenities, including Mitsubishi CONNECT®, which lets you easily access your vehicle remotely through a smartphone app, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connective capabilities, a premium audio system, and an intelligent touchscreen. Plus, with a suite of high-tech driver-assist technologies, you’ll have more help staying safe on the road.

Combining the comfort of the old with the innovations of the new, Mitsubishi has brought the Eclipse back with a vengeance. Visit Hampton Mitsubishi today and see why the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the crossover SUV you’ve been waiting for.
