The updated 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has been revealed ahead of an Australian launch in November.
Following the launch of the petrol-powered models, a PHEV variant will join the range in 2021.
Changes to the exterior include an evolved version of the brand’s Dynamic Shield grille, a new front bumper guard and a refreshed light layout.
At the rear, there’s now a redesigned hatch and rear window in place of the split rear-window design of the outgoing car.
Inside the cabin, the infotainment screen has grown to 8.0-inches and moved closer to the driver and front-seat passenger for ease of use, and now incorporates volume and tuning knobs for faster operation.
The touchpad that was previously used for multiple functions has been removed to allow for more storage space in the centre console.
There’s also a new black interior with silver accents and the option of light grey leather trim.
Moving to the powertrains, Mitsubishi has confirmed the 110kW/250Nm 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine from the current model will be carried over. It will continue to be matched to a CVT automatic with the choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
Mitsubishi is yet to announce details of the PHEV variant, however, expect a tweaked version of the set-up found in the Outlander PHEV.
For reference, the Outlander PHEV is powered by a 94kW/199Nm 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine combined with a 13.8kWh battery pack, a 60kW/137Nm front-mounted electric motor and a 70kW/195Nm rear electric motor. The system produces a total of 157kW and 332Nm.
With the battery fully-charged, Mitsubishi quotes an electric driving range of up to 54km with charging times ranging from 7 hours to 25 minutes depending on the charger type.
Mitsubishi Australia will confirm local specs and pricing closer to the launch date.
