You probably remember the name “Eclipse” as the name of a Mitsubishi sports car from a few years ago. The Mitsubishi Eclipse was discontinued back in 2012, but its legacy is carried on through the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The Eclipse Cross is a crossover with more sporty styling to call back to the Eclipse that inspired it.
The 2020 model year of the Eclipse cross comes with four trims, seven exterior color options, and plenty of attitude. In a lineup of Mitsubishi crossovers, the Eclipse Cross would stand out the most due to its sleek, curved body lines and sharp front end. The table below collects some of the most important specifications and available features into one place to help you decide if the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the right vehicle for you.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is hard to compare to the old Eclipse coupe. It is better to think of the Eclipse Cross as a turbo-powered small crossover with AWC. This makes the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross better suited for light off-roading and adventurous driving than the high-speed driving the original Eclipse had potential for. This tenacious crossover still has plenty of engine power to impress you, but it might be better put to use in the mud on trails, not to mention far better performance on snow and ice than the original Eclipse could have given.
