The compact SUV segment has not been getting a lot of attention these days. So if it felt like the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has been out of the loop lately, it really does not come as a surprise.
This is what Mitsubishi is trying to address with an upgraded version of the vehicle slated to arrive in the United States soon. Even better news for interested buyers is that it starts selling at $24,590.
As is the norm, the base price is not inclusive of new features (i.e., updated infotainment system with an 8-inch display); however, it does include the $1,195 mandatory destination charge for the Cross’ ES trim.
For customers who don’t mind spending a bit more, the LE trim would be the better choice. This variant comes with an 8-inch display in its new infotainment system, heated seats, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers—all for $25,940.
Also joining the range is the SE trim, which starts at $27,340, followed by the range-topping SEL variant priced at $28,590. For an extra $2,100, customers may opt to include a Touring Package to the SEL that will include heated seats in both the front and rear with nine various reclining options. The Super All-Wheel Control AWD system, meanwhile, costs another $1,600 regardless of the trim.
The upgraded SUV also features mild styling tweaks such as the addition of conventional taillights in place of the long light bar, the use of more premium materials, and more cargo space.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is expected to arrive at dealerships in the US in the coming weeks to be followed by the next-generation Outlander.
