Leon Motors, the authorized distributor of Mitsubishi here in Nepal has released the Eclipse Cross. The Eclipse Cross starts at a reasonable NRP of Rs. 1,02,50,000 and will top out at Rs. 1,09,50,000. Building on a history of style, technology and fun-to-drive dynamics, the Eclipse moniker is back in the form of a Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV). The Eclipse Cross is a fusion of sharp coupe looks and dynamic SUV mobility with signature Mitsubishi styling, technology and driving confidence. The Eclipse Cross contains many all-new features including a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo- engine, dual-pane, power-sliding panoramic roof, 7-inch smartphone link thin display audio with touchpad controller, Head-Up Display (HUD), heated rear seats and the launch of MITSUBISHI CONNECT.
The front of the Eclipse Cross features Mitsubishi’s signature DYNAMIC SHIELD front design concept. The concept is a protective shield shape visually formed by the black central area represented by a black radiator grille that hints to the performance of the car. Similarly, the Eclipse Cross’ coupe form is distinguished by: its wedge profile with distinctive beltline and strong character line; a forward raked rear window; the angular rear gate and short overhang; and beefy fenders projecting the image of a powerful athlete.
The interior of the Eclipse Cross represents a new design direction for Mitsubishi with a quality and refinement that has never been seen before. The cockpit style interior wraps around the driver for a sporty feel. Almost immediately noticed once inside the Eclipse Cross is a high-resolution, thin display on top of the instrument panel. This 7-inch monitor is used to control the audio system and is able to connect to your smartphone. Another new interior feature for the Eclipse Cross is a full-color Head-Up Display (HUD) that provides the driver with real-time vehicle information.
Eclipse Cross comes standard with a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo power plant that offers a compelling combination of drivability, performance and efficiency. This new turbo technology provides both strong torque and better fuel efficiency with 152 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 184 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. The Eclipse Cross is equipped with Mitsubishi’s proprietary, advanced S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control) system, which enhances both straight-line stability and cornering performance by precisely controlling the torque supplied to each of the four wheels. The S-AWC system is an integration of the vehicle dynamics control system that monitors each component around the 4WD system, including: Active Stability Control (ASC), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), Active Yaw Control (AYC) to distribute driving torque to the rear wheels and between right and left wheels by additional brake force and the electronically controlled 4WD system.
