Mitsubishi officially bringing back the Eclipse

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is back, only this time around it's an SUV and has a "Cross" attached to its name.

As is nearly always the case, the Eclipse Cross is more aesthetically conservative than its preceding concept; the XR-PHEV's hidden door handles, for example, have been replaced with conventional items on the Eclipse Cross.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will extend its product line-up with the launch of new SUV, scheduled to be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show on March 7.

While we wait for more details about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, let us know your views about the SUV through the comments section below.

Prices and equipment levels for the Eclipse Cross will be announced closer to the car's on-sale date later in the year, but expect it to sit between the ASX and Outlander in terms of pricing.

It is now confirmed that the auto is called the Eclipse Cross, and it will sit between the ASX and Outlander in the Japanese brand's SUV range. The new vehicle is built around a shortened version of the Outlander architecture.

"Eclipse is a word used to describe an astronomical event", the Japanese automaker continued.

The Eclipse Cross is expected to be offered with a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 2.2-litre diesel, as well as four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox - though a petrol-electric hybrid looks unlikely for now.
