Mitsubishi Teases Redesigned Eclipse Cross

  • Mitsubishi plans all-new and revised line by mid next year


We’re still not sure if we’re over the evolution of the Mitsubishi Eclipse from powerful sports coupe to Eclipse Cross compact crossover, but the new model is doing quite well for the automaker. So now the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is getting ready for a redesign, part of the company’s efforts to have a full showroom of new and “extensively redesigned” models before the second half of next year. Here’s our first look.

“The new design draws inspiration from the Mitsubishi e-Evolution Concept1 emphasizing the strength and dynamics from our SUV heritage, while enhancing the cleanliness and elegance of a coupe-like SUV,” said Seiji Watanabe, division general manager of Design, MMC. “The Eclipse Cross is the first step toward the next generation of Mitsubishi Design, and there is so much more to come.”

It doesn’t look like a massive change for the outside of the Eclipse Cross, but there are some significant modifications. While the dropping roofline and heavily raked rear hatch remain, the tailgate itself is smoother (at least in what we can see) and there are much larger and more aggressive rear lights.

At the front are sharper, longer headlights extending further into the front fenders, and a large new chrome surround for the grille that runs up under the lights. We expect changes on the inside, too, for the model that’s set to be revealed in the first quarter of next year, as the brand works to improve the look, feel, and value proposition of its model lineup. 2019 was Mitsubishi’s third consecutive year of record sales, and while 2020 has likely thrown a wrench in the works, the Eclipse Cross is an important part of the company’s sales success.
