Mitsubishi Slaughters Historic Name for New SUV: Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi Slaughters Historic Name for New SUV: Eclipse Cross”

The Eclipse Cross will be part of a trio of new crossovers that the automaker plans to bring to markets worldwide, focusing on that hot segment instead of its more familiar coupes, sedans and light trucks.

Mitsubishi Motor Corp. will resurrect the venerable Eclipse name in the new compact crossover it unveils at next month's Geneva motor show, hoping to marshal memories of the popular sporty coupe that helped build the brand's reputation for performance.

We reported a couple of weeks ago that we expected the new SUV to be named Mitsubishi Eclipse - reviving the name of a Mitsubishi Sports vehicle which didn't come to the United Kingdom - but it also gets "Cross" tagged on the end just so we don't get the two confused. The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross should be bigger than the Outlander Sport (called the RVR in Canada) and smaller than the Outlander.

The recent trading ended with the price almost -10.27 lower for the last 5 trading days, rebounding 2.32% from its 52-week low. Q1 revenues are seen falling 9.5% to 13% to $574 to $597 million, also badly short of analysts' $659.18 million estimate.

No further details of the Eclipse Cross have yet been released, though from the teaser photos it can be determined that the newcomer will be a much more stylish, crossover-type auto than the brand's typical SUV product. With the overwhelming demand for SUVs and crossovers, Mitsubishi Motors has shifted its focus on producing more SUVs in their lineup.

Unfortunately, none of the promotional materials that have been released for the 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SUV have revealed its technical specs.

The Qashqai's £18,500 starting price is the one to watch though, and Mitsubishi has a fairly clear target at which to pitch its Eclipse Cross.
