A LOOK AT THE ALL-NEW 2019 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS
Mitsubishi does nothing in half measure and the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross confirms this. As a compact SUV, the Eclipse Cross combines form and function to provide a great ride for getaways and a reliable car for the daily commute. Thanks to a large interior, it provides a great driving solution for both families and executives with an adventurous side.
SPOILED FOR CHOICE
The Eclipse Cross provides a number of options to prospective buyers and starts off by offering four different trims. The base model is the ES 1.5T which offers drivers 16-inch alloy wheels. Drivers also have the option to bump this trim level up to the ES 1.5T S-AWC. The other three trims in the range are the LE 1.5T S-AWC, SE 1.5T S-AWC, and SEL 1.5T S-AWC. All trims feature LED daytime running lights and color-keyed front and rear bumpers. The SE and SEL models differentiate their exterior slightly with the chrome upper grille and a gloss black front center bumper.
THE IDEAL FIT FOR ADVENTUROUS OUTINGS
One of the most remarkable features that passengers notice as they enter the spacious interior is just how roomy this vehicle is. It seats five passengers comfortably and there is plenty of head and leg room. The trunk has ample trunk space for gear, and with a towing capacity of 1500 pounds, those long road trips can easily become a reality. The rear seats also feature a slide and recline option and the standard 60/40 split which is essential in SUVs.
PERFORMANCE IS PART OF THE PACKAGE
Technology allows a simple 1.5-liter engine to transform into something quite impressive, as the 1.5-liter inline-4 MIVEC and direct injection turbocharged engine proves. Drivers can expect up to 152 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired up with an eight-speed CVT transmission that features a sports mode.
CONVENIENCE AT THEIR FINGERTIPS
The LE, SE, and SEL trims all provide drivers with access to a seven-inch smartphone link thin-display audio system with a touchpad controller. Drivers can also expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, along with SiriusXM satellite radio connection with a three-month subscription. The SEL trim also has the option of upgrading the sound to a 710-watt nine-speaker Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system. Drivers of the SE and SEL trims also have access to the Mitsubishi Connect Telematics System with safeguard and remote services. It also provides a 24-month trial subscription.
SUPERB SAFETY FEATURES
Both the SE and SEL trims offer drivers the FAST-key passive entry system with a push-button start and panic feature. These trims also provide access to blind spot warning with lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert. Safety features that are standard across the model include the tire pressure monitoring system and active stability control, which are critical for those long open roads.
SUVs provide passengers with extra interior space and enough power for fun family outings. The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross adds to the mix by providing drivers with great safety features and access to convenience through cutting edge technology.
