Mitsubishi Unveils New 2022 Eclipse Cross


Mitsubishi has taken the wraps off on its newly restyled 2022 Eclipse Cross.

The new Eclipse Cross is expected to make its debut first in Australia and New Zealand in November before crossing the ocean to Canada in the first quarter of 2021.

This new Eclipse Cross will come with several significant enhancements, such as the adoption of the Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield for the vehicle’s front end, a new front bumper guard and light layout. The Eclipse Cross will also bring a more sophisticated SUV styling with a redesigned hatch and rear window that will match with the vehicle’s updated tailgate sporting a sculpted hexagon design.

Inside will also get several updates, including a black interior with silver accents and a new 8-inch smartphone link display system that will make the Eclipse Cross’s infotainment system smoother and easier to operate, and incorporates volume and turning knobs for easier and faster access to the system’s functions.

Under the hood, the Eclipse Cross will come with a 1.5-litre MIVEC direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine and paired with an eight-speed sports mode continuously variable transmission (CVT).


While there will be a plug-in hybrid variant of the vehicle available in select markets, there are no plans at this time to add the PHEV model to Canada.
