    According to Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA), the 2023 Eclipse Cross will get the driving confidence backed by the company's legendary motorsport victories on the special stages of the World Rally Championship and in the desert dunes of Dakar.

    MMNA adds that the S-AWC performs seamlessly, regardless of road or weather conditions and excels 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,” explained MMNA.

    In addition to the S-AWC, the 2023 Eclipse Cross will come with driver-assist features such as standard forward collision mitigation (FCM) with pedestrian detection and lane departure warning (LDW). Depending on the trim level, buyers can get additional features that range from automatic high beam (AHB) assist headlamps and rain-sensing wipers to standard blind spot warning (BSW) with lane change assist (LCA) and rear cross traffic alert (RCTA).

    Under the hood of the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine that offers a blend of performance and efficiency, offering 152 horsepower at 5,500rpm and around 249Nm of torque between 2,000 to 3,500rpm. The power plant is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which aids in seamlessly delivering power and efficiency in all driving conditions.

    Exterior-wise, the compact crossover SUV dons a bold and sporty Dynamic Shield front fascia. It’s flanked by headlamps, high-mounted LED daytime running lights (DRLs), integrated turn signals, and fog lamps. At the rear is a sharply sculpted hexagonal liftgate, a rear-mounted spare tire, and a wide single rear window.

    Interior equipment range from the seven- or eight-inch infotainment system, synthetic suede or leather seats, a heated steering wheel, armrests with cupholders, heated rear seats, a power panoramic sunroof, and an on-screen Head-Up Display (HUD).

    The 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be offered in four trims: Eclipse Cross ES, Eclipse Cross LE, Eclipse Cross SE, and Eclipse Cross SEL. They are priced at US$25,795, US$27,045, US$28,045, and $29,295 respectively.

    The Eclipse Cross SE is also offered with the Panorama Package priced at US$29,045 while the Eclipse Cross SEL can be had with the optional Touring Package priced at US$31,395.
