Remember the eclipse? His SUV brother is born. Front foggies seems too big though. Remember Mit used to say they may evo their SUVs (somehow they retracted that statement recently). Maybe this is the model they are referring to. Wonder if this will arrive in SG.

Awful front.
Everyone is trying to be Citroen C4 Cactus, but failed miserably.
Hyundai kona still looks ok but this totally ruined it.

Well, on the bright side, this doesn’t look as bad as the xpander
That car is utter crap in and out,with crap styling and crap 4 speed auto (in 2017!!!!!!!!!)

But why does the rear looks so much like the Prius?

Saw the Eclipse in the raw at the showroom and did not have to squeeze with the Motor Show crowd. Had ample time to scrutinise the interior and built quality

 

Pros

- Made in Japan

- Spacious and sits 5 comfortably with ample leg room

- Low road tax with 1.5 turbo engine

 

Cons

- Insurance premium loading with turbo engine

- Drinks heavily if you rev the engine hard

- Initially turbo lag in moving the heavy 1.5 tonnes kerb weight 

- Poor installation of locally fitted leather seats - leather is loosely fitted on the seats and folds are visible 

- Plastic interior - sounds hollow when you tap on it

- Limited boot space

- Doors are very light and does not close with a solid thud

- Looks can be an acquired taste - especially the rear

- Costly to purchase $128K - priced at the same range as Hyundai Tucson 1.6 turbo and Toyota CH-R - many better value options at significantly cost savings avail -

Subaru XV 2.0 $103K

Subaru Forester 2.0 $106K (best contender)

Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0 7 seater MPV $124K

Mazda CX3 2.0 - $117K

 

While a turbo engine can give an initial burst in acceleration, how long can a car on steriods sustain before it runs out of breadth? Think of Ben Johnson. If the turbo decides to retire prematurely which is common, you must plan to burn a big hole in your pocket.

 

I would take the Japan made Subaru Forester 2.0 and save $20K.

That Forester at $20k cheaper is the non turbo one n as such u shld be comparing with the turbo Forester which is more ex than this Eclipse Cross.

Maybe not...it will die instead with its crappy pricing.
Honda fanboys are far from being dead, so they can price expensively
Most Mitsubishi fanboys are 'dead' so nobody sane will buy this...

Mitsubishi needs a sports car to make it interesting.
Even a hybrid or EV FTO like sports car to compete with the GT86 and BRZ.

No...cannot compare Mitsubishi to FXT
Even though 2.0 NA is lethargic at 148 bhp, but the Mitsubishi eclipse 1.5t is just 161 bhp while XT is 238 bhp
In this case, the Mitsubishi is closer to Fna as power of engine is similar.
But power to weight ratio , Mitsubishi wins.

Forester N.A with 148 bhp is a closer comparison than the XT turbo which has 238 horses and is a class above from the Eclipse's 161 horses.

 

The Harrier 2.0 turbo might be a better comparison with the Subaru XT.

I do see your point but it’s also unfair to compare a NA car v turbo one n to compound matters 2 litre v 1.5 litre. Even price range is not anywhere near. In fact the FXT price is closer to Eclipse Cross.

If you compare Forester XT 2.0 turbo with Eclipse 1.5 turbo, it's a no brainer that the XT wins hands down in all aspects.  :D

Got to agree with u on this and even price wise, 2litre FXT costs just abit more than the Eclipse. I suppose C&C feel there is a market for this car and shld have done their homework cos they are obliged to sell a certain number n the Forester is a tough competitor to beat for sure.
