Geneva Motor Show 2017: Mitsubishi debuts Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi will debut the all-new Eclipse Cross at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

The Eclipse Cross is due to go sale in the UK early 2018 in the C-SUV segment.

It will be fitted with the ‘smartphone link display audio system, a touchpad controller and head up display, allowing the driver to access different types of information.

The system supports Apple CarPlay, linking to an iPhone in the car.

The driver can use Siri or the smartphone link display audio’s touch screen to receive directions optimised for traffic conditions, make and receive calls, access text messages, and listen to music.

The system supports the Android Auto which provides voice-controlled operation of Google Maps, Google Play music and other apps.

The touchpad controller can operate audio functions like radio, as well as Apple CarPlay.

The head up display unit makes driving safer by presenting vehicle speed, data from the active safety systems and other necessary information that minimises eye movement and provides instant readability.

Driving

Eclipse Cross uses an electronically-controlled 4WD system that feeds the optimum amount of torque to the rear wheels depending on the driving situation and the road surface.

There will be two engines in the range.

The new 1.5-litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine with a new CVT transmission with eight-speed sport mode manual override, and the 2.2-litre common rail direct-injection turbocharged diesel engine, modified specifically for Eclipse Cross and fitted with a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
