It’s safe to say that the upcoming Eclipse won’t have a shortage of talented rivals. But, this car is supposed to blend style and substance properly for the best comeback. That’s why we expect lots of things from the upcoming Mitsubishi Eclipse. Thus, what’s new from this new vehicle?

One of the significant updates will be the availability of a front-wheel-drive setup on all trim levels. Moreover, this new car is expected to add heated front seats to the LE variants. Besides, the SE variants will include extra safety features. Now, read on to get to know more about this car.

2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Preview and Features

The upcoming Mitsubishi Eclipse will be a part of the first generation of the nameplate introduced in 2018. For this reason, we shouldn’t expect any significant changes to be applied. There might be some significant updates, but it will be far from a redesign.

Under the hood, we assume that a 2.2L diesel engine will be offered along with a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cyl petrol unit. The engine can be paired with two-wheel drive and either a CVT automatic or six-speed manual transmission. These engine options are expected to offer outstanding performance.

The upcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is expected to offer smoother acceleration and better speed performance. Considering the current model, which is lacking in terms of speed, the automaker may need to revise this issue in the next Eclipse. Then, how is the exterior and interior design?

Outside, there won’t be apparent changes on the exterior of this new Eclipse. Inside, we can anticipate the popular plush-feeling interior from the automaker. Mitsubishi started to introduce far more tactile switches in this new Eclipse. Moreover, the plastic materials also feel and look much nicer than before.

2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Features and Prices

Then, what features should we expect from this new Eclipse? Fortunately, this car is loaded with a lot of standard features. Some of the features worth mentioning include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a DAB radio. Moreover, you can anticipate an easy-to-use infotainment system and other useful features inside the cabin.

The price of this 2021 Eclipse hasn’t been confirmed yet. If we consider the cost of its current model year, the base ES variant will start at $22,845. Then, the well-equipped LE variant will start at $25,545. The estimated monthly payment is around $389 per month for the SEL variant for the lease deals.

In conclusion, the 2021 Eclipse would receive several minor changes only. For this reason, the price won’t be far from the current model year. It offers loads of standard features and peppy performance from the turbocharged engine. If you’re interested in this new Eclipse Cross, keep an eye on the next update!
