Amongst the uber-luxurious SUV reveals from the likes of Infiniti, BMW, Porsche and others at last weeks Dubai International Motor Show, the all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross made its first appearance in the region and was indeed a crowd favourite.
Set to slot in between the smaller ASX and 7-seater Outlander, the 2018 Mitsubishi Cross boasts a sharp exterior thanks to slanted, dual front grille finished in chrome, custom designed LED headlights as well and a deep ower front end.
Around the back, the rear hatch protrudes out similar to that of the Toyota C-HR with an eye-catching spoiler resting just above. From the side, the model gives off a coupe impression thanks to steeply raked A and C Pillars.
As for options, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross benefits from a wide selection of safety and creature comfort features as standard as well as a long list of optional extra.
Adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, lane-change assist and blind-spot warning system just to name a few.
Driving Mitsubishi’s latest model is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine rated at 163 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. Mated to a CVT gearbox, the quirky crossover launches to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds while its top speed is electronically capped at 200 km/h.
Where is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross heading too next?
As it has left an impression on potential customers in the UAE, the 2018 Eclipse Cross is heading for the US and will be revealed to customers there during the LA Motor Show next week.
2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SUV’s will go on sale early 2018 for an unknown price as of writing.
