New Mitsubishi Compact SUV To Be Named Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi have officially announced that their new Geneva-bound compact SUV will indeed utilize the Eclipse name.

Dubbed ‘Eclipse Cross’, it combines the name of Mitsubishi’s popular specialty coupe model, the Eclipse, with the moniker Cross, which of course stands for “crossover”.

The Japanese automaker is also teasing this particular high-saturation red body color developed specifically for this new model, a color which is meant to reflect the brilliance of the prominence that you’d see during a total solar eclipse.

In terms of styling, the Eclipse Cross is all about “marrying stylish coupe lines with the freedom of movement the SUV genre gives.” Furthermore, the automaker says that the Eclipse Cross’ “beautiful and dynamic” form is meant to bring about a sense of excitement and inspiration, again, similar to a solar eclipse.

The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will make its debut in Geneva at the 87th Salon International de l’automobile on March 7th, during the first media day.

    you know something’s wrong when the korean brands are making better looking cars than Mitsubishi. Lift your game mitsubishi, youve lost your way.

    I mean they didn’t call it just the Eclipse, so it’s kinda like what Hyundai did with the Genesis model, except I don’t think “Eclipse” will ever be spun off into its own brand. lol.

    It’s the right business decision. It’ll suck but this is the market. I for one, will be happy to skip CUVs and go straight into autonomous pods.

    Everyone is going to hate how Mitsubishi uses a popular name.

    I have to admit it’s growing on me. I kind of like the idea of a crossover Eclipse in some form. Let’s face it, coupes don’t sell. Hyundais Veloster barely sells, Subaru BRZ sales are luke warm…coupes don’t sell so I’ll take an a Eclipse Cross. In its shadowy form it looks pretty good! I’m anxious to see the final product and see the specs. So sue me I like Mitsu! I’m hoping This thing will have some kind of guts under the hood!
