In Europe, will soon begin selling diesel versions of the model

Two years after the debut, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was a light update – the coupe-crossover equipment was slightly modified. In this case, he will soon receive a diesel engine.

There are no cosmetic upgrades for the 2019 model year at all: the exterior of the car remained unchanged, with the exception of the new 16-inch alloy wheels on the cars in the basic configuration.

The main innovation concerns the electronics on the front-wheel drive versions of the crossover: they now have Active Yaw Brake Control, which, using regular brakes, simulates locking the cross-wheel differential, “refueling” the car into a turn.

The new flagship equipment, Black Connected Edition, has appeared on the UK market – its main feature is the on-board telematic system Mitsubishi Connect. Probably, similar machines will soon be available in other countries.

In addition, in the middle trim levels began to put the rear-view mirror with auto-darkening, and the range of colors enlarged pearl blue.

Earlier in Mitsubishi Motors announced the imminent appearance of a diesel engine on the Eclipse Cross crossover. Cars with a 2.2 engine with 148 horsepower will begin to flow to European dealers of the brand in March of this year. All diesel crossovers will be equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Until now, in Europe, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was offered with a single engine – a 1.5-liter gasoline turbo engine. It develops 163 horsepower. Transmission – six-speed manual transmission or a variator, drive – front or full.
