Mitsubishi teases new SUV Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi has confirmed the name for its all-new SUV will be 'Eclipse Cross' - and at the same time realised more teaser images.

Set to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Eclipse Cross name references the Mitsubishi Eclipse sports car which amassed more than 1.4 million sales, mainly in North America between 1989 and 2012. The Japanese company says it chose the names as the new SUV has ‘sharp, coupé-like contours’ while also referring to the cross-functional SUV nature of the new car.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will line up alongside the ASX and Outlander to broaden the brand’s model range and 'introduce a whole new audience' to the company.

The new Eclipse Cross that will debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 7 is finished in a deep gloss red metallic - a fresh colour specially developed for this new model using an new painting process.
