Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exterior
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Interior
Inside the car is a factory-fitted infotainment system and 7” colour display. The Smartphone Link Display Audio on the display is handy for a driver to access information and easily operated through a touchpad controller.
A Heads Up display also makes it convenient for them to view vehicle speed and additional information. In terms of connectivity, the system is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible with two USB ports under the air-conditioning controls.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Performance
With a 1.5 litre turbocharged MIVEC engine producing 161hp with a maximum torque of 250Nm from 1,800 to 4,500 rpm, the Eclipse Cross achieves 100km/h in 9.3 seconds.
The Eclipse Cross is also equipped with the Active Yaw Control which gives the car exceptional stability and control by providing optimal drive and brake torque to the left and right front wheels.
The CVT transmission produces a familiar whine when overexerted and you might feel a tinge of body roll when navigating corners. Beyond that, however, the Mitsubishi Eclipse fairs relatively well in terms of its ride quality and handling. For a larger vehicle, it is impressively quiet and soaks up most bumps without trouble. It takes little to no effort for accurate and controlled timing. There is little doubt that you will enjoy comfortable rides with this choice, especially in a city like Singapore.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Safety
While Mitsubishi may be undergoing changes, its emphasis on safety remains undaunted. The Eclipse Cross comes with Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution Body, or RISE for short, that has won ASEAN NCAP’s five-star rating. It enhances passenger protection through efficient energy absorption and high cabin integrity in the event of a collision.
Advanced safety technologies such as the Automatic High Beam and Hill Start Assist are all present, while the car also has a neat trick tucked away. A reverse camera, easily activated by a button on the steering wheel, makes parking and navigating corners easier for drivers.
