What’s New for the 2023 Eclipse Cross?
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross’s development began in 2011 when it was designed as the new successor for the Eclipse Sport Coupe. It was to be a niche sportscar that would exceed all other competitors. Its design was inspired by the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X MR GT500’s aerodynamic lines, and its performance is comparable to that of the Porsche Boxster. The Eclipse Cross was set to be the “one car to rule them all” and become a new icon for Mitsubishi.
