The network has “spy” photos of the new version of the crossover Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It is worth noting that this is the very first time that journalists manage to capture a test prototype of the updated SUV.

We were very intrigued when Mitsubishi announced the return of the legendary Eclipse nickname in February 2017. Unfortunately, the brand added the Cross suffix to the name, which meant that we should not expect a new generation of a two-door sports coupe. Instead, Mitsu introduced a crossover of a rather strange shape, which should receive a significant update at the end of this year. These are the first “spy” photos of the updated Eclipse Cross, and we noticed something quite interesting.

 Although the appearance of the new product is apparently almost identical to the current version of the model that is being sold today, with the exception of the small changes planned for the headlights, it seems that significant changes have taken place behind.

The previous scheme with two windows is likely to be replaced by a more traditional design with one large rear window. In addition, it seems that the spoiler with integrated LED strip has disappeared, while the taillights now have a horizontal view, which makes the crossover a little wider.

In addition, it seems that there are some changes in the side skirts, while the rear bumper diffuser may get a slightly different design. Finally, a new roof spoiler has appeared, which – at least in these first “spy” photographs – looks too large compared to the overall proportions of the car. Together, all of these changes should give the Eclipse Cross a more traditional crossover look.

 Depending on the market, the model is currently available with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine or a 2.2-liter diesel equivalent. We expect that both engines will also be offered for the new product with some modifications to the exhaust filter systems to reduce CO2 emissions.
