Mitsubishi has revealed the name of its all-new SUV will be Eclipse Cross.
The Eclipse Cross name references the Eclipse sports car which amassed more than 1.4 million sales, mainly in North America between 1989 and 2012, while also referring to the cross-functional SUV nature of this new car.
It will line up alongside the Mitsubishi ASX and Mitsubishi Outlander to broaden the brand’s model range and introduce a whole new audience to Mitsubishi Motors, taking on crossover giants like the Nissan Qashqai.
Official specs have yet to be confirmed, but its expected that a 1.5 litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine and a 2.2 litre diesel engine will be available at launch.
The car goes on sale in the second half of this year and will be on display at the Geneva motor show next month.
