2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to feature standard Super All-Wheel Control

Mitsubishi has announced product updates and pricing for the stylish and sporty 2023 Eclipse Cross. For the first time in the model's history, all Eclipse Cross models sold in the U.S. will be equipped as standard with the driving confidence inspired by Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system.

From the ES trim to the range-topping SEL Touring model, the 2023 Eclipse Cross carries forward all of the upgrades introduced on the 2022 model, most notably exterior design updates that include the latest interpretation of Mitsubishi's Dynamic Shield at the front and the completely restyled rear hatch and window.

At the front, the hood and bumper combine to present Mitsubishi's Dynamic Shield grille design in a sporty and bold manner. The bisected-lighting design features thin, high-mounted LED daytime running lights (DRLs) at the leading edge of the hood with integrated turn signals just below. Stacked-and-recessed light assemblies in the bumper combine headlamps and fog lamps in a low-mounted position for optimal visibility and to minimize glare into the eyes of oncoming drivers.

In the rear, a sharply sculpted hexagonal liftgate is designed to suggest the company's iconic rear-mounted spare tire, a signature feature on previous Mitsubishi SUVs. The single rear window design is both stylish and offers a wide field of view.

For 2023, the model will see additional updates in the form of a new 18-inch alloy wheel design for LE, SE and SEL trim levels. Lower side-trim is now matched to the body color for all SEL models, and SE trim vehicles add a silver front bumper garnish.

With a starting MSRP of just $25,795, the 2023 Eclipse Cross is fitted with a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine that offers a blend of performance and efficiency, offering 152 hp at 5,500 rpm and 184 lb.-ft. of torque between 2,000 to 3,500 rpm. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is fitted as standard on all models, seamlessly delivering power and efficiency in all driving conditions.

Standard Super All-Wheel Control performs seamlessly regardless of road or weather conditions, providing confidence in both straight-line stability and cornering performance. S-AWC integrates Adaptive Stability Control (ASC), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), and Active Yaw Control (AYC) to distribute driving torque to the rear wheels and between right and left wheels through brake force and an electronically controlled center differential.

Adding standard S-AWC to all Eclipse Cross models is only one part of the brand's commitment to confidence. Further building on that promise is the company's commitment to safety and value. Every 2023 Eclipse Cross receives standard advanced driver-assistance systems, including standard Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) on all trims.

Those seeking the latest safety technology will also appreciate that Automatic High Beam (AHB) assist headlamps and rain-sensing wipers are standard on LE, SE and SEL trim levels. SE and above trims also offer other key safety features including standard Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
