The upcoming 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the latest addition to Mitsubishi’s lineup, a compact crossover that joins the Outlander and Outlander Sport in the company’s effort to shift toward SUVs and crossovers. Inspired by the Eclipse compact sedan, which ceased production in 2012, the Eclipse Cross has sporty design elements like the coupe-like rear window, the bold grille, and the long, thin headlights.
The Eclipse Cross will first go on sale in Europe this fall and will be introduced to other markets afterward, so we won’t see it in the States for at least a year. But we should definitely get excited about its introduction of all-new driver assist and collision mitigation technologies to the Mitsubishi lineup, as well as brand new infotainment features.

The Eclipse Cross fills a space between the larger Outlander and the Outlander Sport, which is due to get smaller in coming model years so Mitsubishi can have a stake in the subcompact crossover market. The clean design of the interior, the turbocharged engine, and an optional head-up display will all work together to make the Eclipse Cross a comfortable, fun to drive option in the crossover market.
