Eclipse name makes a comeback for new Mitsubishi SUV

Mitsubishi has announced that its upcoming SUV will be called the Eclipse Cross.

The Eclipse name was last seen in 2012, featuring on a sports coupe. However, the new name has been created to symbolise the “cross-functional” nature of the new car.

The new Eclipse Cross represents another venture into the SUV and 4X4 market by Mitsubishi, sitting along cars like the ASX and Outlander. The car is thought to be a coupe-like compact SUV designed to rivals offerings like the Toyota C-HR and Honda HR-V.

Due to be unveiled at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, the Eclipse Cross is to be the first in a new generation of Mitsubishi cars, according to the Japanese manufacturer.

These teaser images show a rakish rear window, as well as a strong beltline and an evolution on the brand’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ front end styling. This was first seen on the facelifted Outlander, released in 2015.

The pictures also show a new metallic red paint colour that, according to Mitsubishi, has been designed using “an innovative painting process”.

The Geneva Motor Show runs from March 7-19, with doors opening to the general public on March 9 after two press preview days.
