Mitsubishi Motors announced earlier this week that an updated Eclipse Cross would be a part of the company’s new and extensively redesigned portfolio for the US market.The reimagined Eclipse Cross will lead the charge, and show up in showrooms by Q1 2021, so expect to see a preview of the model in the next couple of months.

The updated Eclipse Cross comes 3 years after the model first debuted in 2017. You can expect radically a redesigned front and rear design, which Mitsubishi Motors says will be more upscale, energetic and sporty. We never got to see it here in those 3 years, but like the XPANDER, that may change with the facelift model…
