Mitsubishi has launched its eagerly-anticipated turbocharged derivative of the Eclipse Cross. Here's how much the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 1.5 Turbo costs as well as some detailed specifications.
When Mitsubishi launched its Eclipse Cross back in February 2019, it was quick to point out that we'd have to wait for the most potent engine. The new 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder packs 110 kW and 250 Nm, mated to a CVT.
The Japanese brand claims a 0-100 kph time of under 9 seconds in Sport mode and thanks to some built-in CVT steps, the driver is given that DCT feeling through the steering wheel paddles. It's also said to be pretty efficient, with a claim of 7.7 L/100 km.
