With a striking design, sophisticated cabin and oodles of practicality, Mitsubishi has finally launched its new Eclipse Cross in South Africa. Hot off its SA media launch, we decided to spend some time driving the Japanese newcomer.
Priced From: R399 995 (March 2019)
Engine: 2.0-litre 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol
Gearbox: Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
Fuel economy: 7.9 L/100 km (claimed)
Power/Torque: 110 kW/198 Nm
Striking Design: Bold & Practical
Fitting in just above the compact crossover that is the Mitsubishi ASX, the Eclipse Cross brings with its some larger dimensions than its smaller sibling, but manages to maintain a profile which is compact enough to not be too much of a handful around the congested city, nor want for any extra space.
Striking a great balance between design and practical appeal, I really like what Mitsubishi has done in terms of its angular retro style styling, a blend which meets real-world practicality.
