If you want to learn more about the Eclipse Cross, our team at Bonita Springs Mitsubishi has put together this buyer’s guide so you can analyze the specifications and features of the vehicle to discover whether it’s right for you.

Updates for 2022

The 2022 Eclipse Cross is Mitsubishi’s first remodel of the vehicle since 2020. Its main focus is its modernized exterior design and updated interior features, which maximize its style and convenience. Both the front- and rear-end of the SUV have a sleek re-design, which includes a new liftgate. Its brand new infotainment touchscreen makes maneuvering through different apps and radio stations and making phone calls easy and safe thanks to its proximity to the driver’s seat. Mitsubishi also replaced the Eclipse’s previous touchpad controlling system for more traditional, yet more user-friendly, manual turning knobs to alter volume and tuning.

Trim Levels and Pricing

The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is available in four trim levels: ES, LE, SE, and SEL. All four trims have four doors and can seat up to five people. The higher the trim level, the more features you can enjoy on your vehicle.

The engine can generate up to 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The standard ES model uses front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive options are available in higher trim levels.
