The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, a compact crossover SUV, will be wearing all-new skin when it arrives, along with a new interior. Pricing has been announced, starting at $23,395 for front-wheel drive models. Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive can be added to any Eclipse Cross trim level for an additional $1,600.

If you are looking for a more accurate idea of pricing, you can build and price an Eclipse Cross on Mitsubishi’s official web site. 

The new Eclipse Cross will be powered by a carryover turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder (152 hp/184 lb-ft of torque) with direct gasoline injection connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that Mitsubishi calls an “8-speed CVT with Sport Mode.” Suspension and handling have been revised to improve ride quality. 

The Eclipse Cross debuted as a 2018 model in the United States, tucked into the Mitsubishi lineup between the Outlander and Outlander Sport. The Eclipse name was used by Mitsubishi from 1990 to 2012 for a fashionable coupe and convertible designed in the U.S.

For 2022, the Eclipse Cross’s exterior has been redesigned from the front to the rear. It is now longer by over five inches, while still riding on the same 105.1-inch wheelbase. This increased overall length has allowed for an increase in cargo capacity while improving the Eclipse Cross’s proportions, which were admittedly a little snub-nosed.

The interior has been upgraded with new color choices which are color-coordinated with the seats and door trim. Amenities like heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats are available. The second row now includes a reclining function with nine distinct recline positions.

Infotainment has been upgraded with a new eight-inch touchscreen system, and the previous center console touchpad has been removed. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard with the new eight-inch screen system. Navigation is included on SE and SEL trim levels, powered by what3words, system that divides the world into three-meter-by-three-meter squares for precise locating ability. TomTom live traffic and mapping is available as an add-on. 

Every trim level of Eclipse Cross will come with standard advanced driver assistance systems, including Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Automatic High Beam. SE and above add Blind-Spot Warning with Lane Change Assistant and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Mitsubishi’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, seven-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation warranty, and five-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance program are also included.
