Mitsubishi moved forward with its commitment to redesign their complete line up by the summer of 2021 with a sneak peek of the all-new Eclipse Cross.
The Eclipse Cross will appear in early 2021 as a 2022 model with a newly designed front and rear end taken directly from Mitsubishi’s next-generation design language.
Seiji Watanabe, division general manager of design, MMC said, “The new design draws inspiration from the Mitsubishi e-Evolution Concept emphasizing the strength and dynamics from our SUV heritage, while enhancing the cleanliness and elegance of a coupe-like SUV.”
The introduction of the redesigned Eclipse Cross follows Mitsubishi’s recent announcement that it intends to significantly update its full lineup by the summer of 2021.
This will include a re-engineered internal-combustion engine and an increased electric range on the Outlander PHEV, as well as an upgraded Mirage that will see significant design upgrades inside and out in the early part of 2021.
A new generation of Outlander is also being anticipated for the spring of 2021.
Mitsubishi also announced that all of their vehicles available in Canada will now offer Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection active safety features.
Juyu Jeon, president and CEO, MMSCAN said, “With today’s first look at the redesigned Eclipse Cross, we reveal the first look at our company’s future design language. This is just the beginning for a new road ahead and we’re excited to share more with our customers.”
The Eclipse Cross has seen a 42 per cent increase in sales since launching in 2019.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be available in the first quarter of 2021 with more information being made available closer to the actual launch date.
