2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

When the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross debuted in 2018, it didn’t arrive to the most glowing reviews, partly due to its awkward styling. Mitsubishi looks to make up for this with the refreshed 2022 Eclipse Cross, which tames some of its wilder design cues without making it overly dull.

Up front, the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will gain a new nose that’ll include a black grille, bolder chrome accents, all-new stacked fog lights, thinner slitlike headlights, and a revamped bumper. Around back, the 2022 Eclipse Cross will drop its most controversial design feature, the full-width taillight bar that split the rear glass. Instead, it’ll boast all-new separated taillights, continuous rear glass, and a reworked hatch.

Inside, the basic design remains, but Mitsubishi will do some shuffling to make the 2022 Eclipse Cross look and feel new. These updates will start with color-coordinated door inserts and available light-gray leather. It will also receive a new 8-inch touchscreen that’s pulled closer to the driver, physical buttons and knobs for easier operation, and the elimination of the center-console-mounted touchpad in favor of additional storage. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also be standard instead of optional.

Under its hood, the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will continue with the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine will push 152 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque through a continuously variable transmission and out to the front wheel or all four wheels.

In the safety department, the current Eclipse Cross did well in IIHS crash tests, scoring a “Good” rating in every test. Where it lacked was in its headlights, which ranged from “Poor” to “Acceptable.” Its automatic emergency braking system received a “Superior” rating in vehicle-to-vehicle front-crash prevention, but it received only a “Basic” rating in vehicle-to-pedestrian front-crash prevention. Plus, the AEB system is standard on only the SE and SEL trims – it’s not available in all other trims.

Pricing & Release Date

Mitsubishi expects to have the 2022 Eclipse Cross in showrooms in the first quarter of 2021.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but with only mild updates, we expect a slight price hike from the current Eclipse Cross’ MSRP range of $24,190 to 29,940 (destination fees included).

This compact crossover will compete with the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage.
