Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in Northampton
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a new breed of SUV. It’s just at home in the city as it is traversing rural tracks. It’s also efficient and fun to drive. In fact, it’s at home anywhere with its sporty handling, refined ride and optional 4WD system. It’s a true ‘crossover’ because it’s capable everywhere. 4WD is available on Dynamic and Exceed models, or you can have 2WD. It’s up to you. Power comes from a smooth 1.5 turbocharged petrol engine with a 6-speed manual or auto CVT transmission. Features like keyless entry, cruise control, blind spot warning, heated front seats, a head-up display, keyless entry, 360° parking camera and leather seats are all available as standard. Now that’s smart.
If athleticism could be captured in form, the Eclipse Cross would be a perfect example. Its sporty stance, SUV shape and elegant body lines give it an aura of sophistication and energy not often found in cars of this type. It’s stunning.
The Eclipse Cross is powerful and efficient. There’s 152bhp and 184 lb-ft of torque on tap and a capable 4WD system available. Plus, there’s a 360° parking camera, all-round parking sensors and a suite of driving aids to make your journeys easy.
With 448-litres of boot space and roomy accommodation for five adult passengers, the Eclipse Cross is perfect for families. We recommend the 4WD models for assured traction in bad weather. The 4WD system has Auto, Snow and Gravel modes.
