Introduced in 2018, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover that fills the gap between the brand’s subcompact RVR and the compact-verging-on-midsize Outlander. It’s also Mitsu’s most adventurous design.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The 2023 Eclipse Cross’s only update is a new Carbon Edition trim level.
Mitsu offers the Eclipse Cross in ES, SE, Carbon Edition, SEL, and GT trim levels. In all, power is from a 1.5L turbo four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and all-wheel drive.
ES comes with 18-inch wheels, auto on/off headlights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors, heated seats, automatic A/C, four-speaker audio with satellite radio, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. ES’s safety kit includes forward collision mitigation, rain-sensing wipers, and TPMS.
SE trim brings blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a heated steering wheel, passive keyless entry, dual-zone A/C, automatic high beams, LED fog lights, paddle shifters, and an electric parking brake.
The new Carbon Edition package gets LED headlights, an upgraded stereo, alloy pedals, and black trim elements inside and out.
SEL builds on SE trim with adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, multi-view cameras, a head-up display, an auto-dimming mirror, heated rear seats, faux suede upholstery, and a power driver’s seat.
Finally, GT trim gains a panoramic roof, leather upholstery, a power passenger seat, and navigation, and includes the Carbon Edition’s more powerful sound system.
Mitsubishi’s fuel consumption estimates for the Eclipse Cross are 9.6/8.9 L/100 km (city/highway).
The Mitsu Eclipse Cross is sized and priced to compete with the Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Equinox.
