Toronto, Ontario, February 13, 2018 – Eclipse Cross, the all-new compact SUV from Mitsubishi Motors will make its Canadian debut at the 2018 Canadian International Auto Show. The 2018 Eclipse Cross is a fusion of sharp coupe looks, dynamic SUV mobility and infotainment connectivity with signature Mitsubishi Motors styling, technology and performance including standard Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC). The all-new 2018 Outlander PHEV, the world’s top-selling plug-in hybrid SUV*, will also be featured.
In the past four months, Mitsubishi Motors in Canada has doubled its sport utility offerings with the addition of the all-new 2018 Eclipse Cross and the all-new 2018 Outlander PHEV to a lineup that includes RVR and Outlander.
“Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada is focused on SUV, Super All-Wheel Control and technology and consumer demand for advanced SUVs tells us this is the right move at the right time,” said Tony Laframboise, President and CEO, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada, Ltd. “The all-new 2018 Eclipse Cross is a culmination of our strengths in the SUV space and together with the game-changing 2018 Outlander PHEV will chart a new course for Mitsubishi Motors in Canada.”
Arriving in Canadian dealerships in March 2018, the Eclipse Cross blends signature Mitsubishi Motors styling, technology and driving confidence. The Eclipse Cross contains many all-new features including a 1.5-litre turbo-charged engine, dual-pane, power-sliding panoramic roof, Head-Up Display(HUD) and heated rear seats.
For Canada, all Eclipse Cross price lines are equipped standard with Mitsubishi Motors’ proprietary, advanced S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control), which enhances both straight-line stability and cornering performance by precisely controlling the torque supplied to each of the four wheels. Other standard features include heated power side view mirrors, rear spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels, rearview camera, and new 7-inch thin-type Smartphone link Display Audio featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and touchpad controller. Starting MSRP for Eclipse Cross is $27,798.
