In September, Mitsubishi previewed updates to its latest crossover, the Eclipse Cross, by way of a shadowy teaser. We may inform the physique had been up to date considerably, however we weren’t certain of specifics on the time. Nicely, now it is time to study just a little extra.

Mitsubishi on Thursday unveiled the 2022 Eclipse Cross SUV. The most important updates to this little utility car come by the use of styling. The entrance finish appears far more aggressive, with a darkish grille flanked by two sturdy chrome trim items that join the working lights to the decrease fascia. Out again, the sunshine bar spanning the width of the car has been eradicated in favor of two distinct taillights that look much less… I do not know, bizarre?

Unusually, the Eclipse Cross is right-hand-drive solely.

Simply kidding, Mitsubishi solely had footage of the Australian mannequin.

The cabin is extra evolution than revolution, with small tweaks corresponding to a door trim that now matches the colour of the seats. Crucial addition is a brand new 8-inch show that rests atop the dashboard, and even higher, it is normal throughout the lineup. The show itself is now nearer to the driving force for simpler entry, and a bodily quantity knob is at all times a welcome addition. The touchpad on the middle console has been banished to the ether, giving the middle console a smidge of additional storage.

The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross rocks the identical powertrain as earlier than, consisting of a 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 making 152 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, which marries to a repeatedly variable transmission with eight simulated “gears.” A plug-in hybrid variant will probably be made accessible in some markets, however Mitsubishi says it has no plans to carry the PHEV to the US. Disgrace, that.

The brand new Eclipse Cross will make its debut in Australia and New Zealand in November, and the US will get a crack at it within the first quarter of 2021.
