mReview: Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross - Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover
Most people won’t even bat an eyelid at the Eclipse Cross due to its questionable looks, but look beyond it and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Back in the good ol’ days where petrol was cheaper and tuning laws were less stringent, the “Eclipse” trademark used to belong to a compact sports car in Mitsubishi's lineup. However, this loveable model has since been discontinued and has not been in production since the early 2000s.
So, when Mitsubishi announced in 2018 that it was bringing this legendary nameplate back, petrolheads the world over were extremely excited and eagerly waited with bated breath.
Then they gave us…this, an S.U.V.
Seems like nothing is immune to the ongoing SUV/Crossover wave, but how has Mitsubishi delivered on the Eclipse's revival? Read on here to find out!
