2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Redesign & Updates
When it comes to the exterior design, all Mitsubishi cars have a great design. And this also occurs for the upcoming 2021 Eclipse Cross. Even though there aren’t many details yet about the upcoming car, people can see that this car is so Mitsubishi. The characteristic of the company is in the car and is almost like an L200 pickup design.
One of the differences in the design is the headlights that are made thinner and narrower to make it not look bulky. The grills on the lamp which connects the two headlights are also added from two the three with slim designs. The front part of the car is likely made a bit thin and slim to make it look not too big.
Around the back part of the car, there is a bit redesign in the trunk and taillights. In this new model, they removed the two-piece rear window with a red light strip. The trunk is also made a bit flat compared to the old model making it look like the Honda HR-V.
On the top back edge of the roof, there is also a sizeable rear wing. This adds a bit of traditional touch to the car but not changing the whole modern look. Overall, there isn’t much difference on the outside, but it is still a great looking car.
2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Interior
There will not be a lot of changes inside the upcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Just like the version before, the interior will have leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel. People can also upgrade their steering wheel into a heated one to comfort their drive.
The front part of the car also comes with a touch screen to help people control their needs. However, the current screen was 7 inch which is quite standard with other SUV cars. If they want to make a bit different, then it is better to have a 10-inch screen. Besides the screen, some standard features like the USB port, Bluetooth, and radio will also be available.
The space inside the car is not categorized big but it will be enough for adventuring trips. Both the headroom and legroom have spacey room for adults to stay comfortable. As for the trunk behind, people will get a 22.6 cubic feet space to put their belongings. And a 48.9 cubic feet space when they fold up the rear seats.
Overall, there is nothing too special about the interior design of the car. The interior is not cheap, but it isn’t also the most luxurious and modern one in the SUV segment. But, overall it is comfortable to have a ride inside the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
Powertrain & Transmission
The SUV will likely be coming with a 1.5 Liter turbocharged with a 4-cylinder unit. This turbo cylinder can produce up to 152 horsepower with 184-pound feet of torque. This kind of engine can come with a two-wheel drive or a CVT automatic. It can also come with a 6-speed manual transmission which will give a great performance for the car.
Hopefully, with the options of engines, the upcoming car can give smoother acceleration and speed too. Because the current version of the car gave a poor performance on speed and acceleration. If not, then there will be nothing too special about the car compared to another SUV.
One of the great things about the Mitsubishi car is they pay attention to the safety of their cars. If they have the same features, then the 2021 one will be coming with high tech safety features. One of them is the Forward Collision Mitigation where there is an automatic emergency braking. The system will apply breaks automatically when incoming with a vehicle or person.
The car will also have blind-spot monitoring that will alert people when a vehicle is in their blind spot. People can also upgrade their cars with some remote locking collisions and parental notification. With this app, people can get notifications on speed, locations, and curfew.

Is the car worth to buy and is it better for other SUVs in the market? Well, it depends on your personal needs and use. If you don’t need a luxurious and high-tech car, then this can be an option. Especially, the price of the 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is cheaper with the features it gives.
