Mitsubishi’s small Eclipse Cross SUV gets an update with a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) to follow next year

David Berthon

Much like the new Hyundai Sante Fe I spoke of earlier Mitsubishi next month upgrades its small Eclipse Cross SUV with a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant to follow. The revised Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gets an update to its dynamic shield front styling with changes to its lighting and bumpers. The  rear gains a revised tailgate hatch and rear window while inside, an updated 8-inch colour touch screen replaces the previous 7.0-inch unit. Thankfully, there’s added knobs for volume and tuning, the old multifunction touch pad deleted – touch pads simply not user friendly and invariably taking your eyes off the road. The updated six-model Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross retains its 1.5-litre 110KW turbo petrol engine driving through a continuously variable transmission – prices expected to rise slightly above the current $29,990 to $39,490 pricing range. The Eclipse Cross plays second fiddle to Mitsubishi’s other small SUV the more affordable and  conservative ASX which outsells it by 3 to 1.
