New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ES Takes To The Streets

Mitsubishi Motors Australia is celebrating the arrival of the new entry-level ES variant to its stylish Eclipse Cross SUV range.

The new ES brings the Eclipse Cross line-up to four models – ES, LS, Exceed and Exceed AWD.

Launched earlier this year, the all-new Eclipse Cross is the first of a new generation of Mitsubishi SUVs and joins the brand’s current lineup: the, ASX Outlander and Outlander PHEV, Pajero Sport and Pajero.

As with the existing Eclipse Cross range, the ES is powered by a 1.5-litre direct injection turbocharged petrol engine developing 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque matched to an advanced new CVT automatic transmission with Sport mode and manual shift paddles.

The Eclipse Cross ES also benefits from the spaciousness and versatility of a mid-size SUV with sharp exterior design, engaging driving characteristics, appealing interior, advanced technologies and safety features.

Desirable features such as Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), six-speaker Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA), LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs), reverse camera, front fog lamps and 18-inch alloy wheels are fitted as standard on Eclipse Cross ES all with a starting recommended retail price of $29,990.

MMAL CEO John Signoriello said Mitsubishi welcomed the addition of the Eclipse Cross ES, which provides another appealing choice for savvy, style-conscious buyers.

“The Eclipse Cross ES makes a very desirable package with Mitsubishi’s eye-catching styling combined with the latest in vehicle audio and infotainment systems, sophisticated interior design and advanced safety,” he said.

“The Eclipse Cross ES is the perfect choice for discerning customers who don’t want to compromise on style or driving dynamics.”
