The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross with six trims in the range to choose from, and the option of 2WD and 4WD, means this new mid-sized SUV from Mitsubishi has lots to offer:

It's powered by a 1.5 Litre Turbocharged petrol engine that feels and performs like a 2L, engaging, and feels powerful when you coax it, there is no diesel engine, the powertrain is coupled to a CVT, you can get a manual though with the 2WD.

Now the thing that is suprising is it's capability, the CVT usually is noisy and even under load, dithers, well this is one of the better ones. It produces 250 Nm of torque, and will get you from 0-62mph from between 9.7 and 10.4 seconds, dependent on model.

There's a lot to love with the Eclipse Cross SUV - it's well trimmed inside, and has been designed to give the rear passengers a better view out of the side, it'll keep you safe too, as it's NCAP 5.

One of Annabelle's favourite features is the Heads Up Display (HUD), a great addition, especially for motorway driving, as it gives you essential information without you having to watch your cluster.
