cap hpi has forecast that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2 will retain up to 48.1 per cent of its list price after three years or 60,000 miles, while the Eclipse Cross 3 will retain up to 47.5 per cent of its value and even the top-of-the-range Eclipse Cross 4 will retain 46.9 per cent of its value, placing the new Mitsubishi SUV amongst the best in its segment.
It is also one of the strongest results ever achieved by the Mitsubishi’s vehicles in the UK.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross benefits from standard equipment such as Smartphone Display Audio that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, touch-pad controller, rear view camera, DAB radio with six speakers, climate control air conditioning, LED Daytime Running Lights, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), which uses radar technology to detect a risk of collision.
Lance Bradley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “We are delighted with these results. With the addition of the Eclipse Cross to our range we are able to offer our customers even more choice, providing them with a very attractive package that not only features a comprehensive specification that combines convenience and safety, but is also highly affordable.”
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers a choice of three trim levels – 2, 3 and 4 – with, depending on version, either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. From launch, all variants are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, mated to six-speed manual or all-new eight-step CVT automatic transmissions. A 2.2-litre diesel engine will follow in 2018. The current range of petrol models is priced from £21,275 with the top-of-the range 4 version starting from £24,975.
