Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is confirming that the Eclipse name is returning; only this time, it’ll be on a crossover.
As previously reported, the Eclipse name will be used on a new compact crossover. The Eclipse Cross will make its international debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Mitsubishi is completely unabashed saying that its new compact SUV will live up to the Eclipse nameplate since it will “marry stylish coupe lines with the freedom of movement the SUV genre gives.”
Whatever you think of the name, the Eclipse Cross does look like it’s taking inspiration from the eX Concept (shown at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show) which is a good thing.
The Eclipse Cross will also debut a new “high-saturation red body color” specially developed for the model.
