If you're looking to buy a used Mitsubishi Eclipse, you should first learn about the vehicle itself so you can make the best comparison with other cars on the market. The Mitsubishi Eclipse has been manufactured since 1989 and is a leading coupe in the United States and abroad as well. As the car has developed over the years, Mitsubishi has added more trim models to the selection. These correspond to a variety of different levels of accessories and luxury add-ons. As of the mid-1990s, there are 7 different trim models from the Eclipse line, ranging from the RS and GS models at the base end, up to the GTS Spyder at the high end.
More advanced trim models of the Eclipse feature optional hardcover and automatically reclining convertible roof setups. The lower end models are fully enclosed coupes. One thing that sets the Eclipse apart from other coupes that are available at this point is that the different trim models vary in engine types. The base models tend to have an engine that is 152 horsepower, 2.4 liters in capacity and 16 valve. These gradually increase up to a maximum of 210 horsepower, 3.0 liters in capacity and 24 valve for the top end models.
If you are looking for a trim model of a Mitsubishi Eclipse that was built during or after the model year 2006, you'll find that the company reduced the number of trim options to 4. This went along with a substantial redesigning of the frame and technology of the car. All 4 trim options since 2006 are substantially more powerful than the lower end models from previously. This redesign has not only helped to increase the safety and appearance of the vehicle, but it has also bolstered the Eclipse into a new level of popularity.
