Mitsubishi Gives Its Upcoming Crossover a Hopeful Name



Quote:
Mitsubishi is hoping to turn its fortunes around in North American by introducing a new crossover.

Mitsubishi has unveiled the name for its new CUV as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The Eclipse was a popular sports coupe and convertible back in the day, and Cross is obviously short for crossover. Mitsubishi hasn’t sold the sporty Eclipse in North America since 2012, and many are hoping that the revival of the name means the crossover will have a sporty driving dynamics.

Mitsubishi is in dire need of products to bolster its North American lineup, and crossovers are what consumers want. The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross should be bigger than the Outlander Sport (called the RVR in Canada) and smaller than the Outlander. The upcoming compact crossover will also adopt a “coupe SUV” style with a sloping roofline and muscular proportions.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will debut officially at the Geneva Motor Show in March. AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the show, and we will bring you more information about the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross when it is unveiled.

They did add the 'cross' to the end, though. -Maybe- they'll come back with an actual Eclipse. Doubtful, but it could happen.

They've totally lost brand awareness. It's a stupid idea. Putting a sports car name on a glorified minivan doesn't make it worth buying. Needing a minivan is why people buy them. Call it anything that you HAVEN'T used yet.


Can't wait for the Lancer revival (aside from the one in China that already is revived). Maybe the Lancer will be a full size SUV?

Outlander sport is basically a evo just need lower it and drop a turbo in and they made a grand lancer instead of a evo

Orrrrrr, just bring back the best selling sports coupe you had in your lineup for 20 years. Mitsubishi has been riding the stupid train for several years now, seems they decided to keep ridin.

You're telling me a 2 door crossover can't replace the evo in spirit, and the eclipse in name? Absurd!

In all seriousness this is a terrible idea, but not if they called it the Outlander Ralliart

I actually really like it, as far as Evoque-like CUV's go. Even the Aztek spilt glass. It just means here's no intention/chance of a proper coupe-based 'Eclipse' being released anytime in the next 10 years. But I'm sure a RWD, 400HP Starion is in the works with all the Nissan money coming in, and the 370Z on it's way out. Totally sure.
