Mitsubishi has unveiled the 2022 Eclipse Cross. The updated version of the Japanese crossover has received significant design updates.

Following an official teaser for the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that aired last month, the Japanese automaker has finally unveiled the crossover. The 2022 model year features notable design updates.

The updates are not drastic: the changes mainly consist of a tinted grille and new front bumper protection, which are in line with the new styling of the Mitsubishi Dynamic Shield brand.

The most feature-rich Eclipse Cross update is at the back.

The rear window and tailgate not only give the crossover a sleeker look, but also improve the driver’s view. The taillights have also been changed to make them more visible when viewed from behind.

There aren’t many updates inside, save for new black and silver trim. The layout has also been slightly redesigned, with a new 8-inch Smartphone-Connected Multimedia System (SDA) positioned closer to the driver and front passenger. Mitsubishi also ditched touchpad controls for greater tactile volume and knob.

The crossover will be offered with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder MIVEC engine with direct injection and turbocharging, as well as a plug-in hybrid engine. Details about the latter are scarce at the moment.
