Mitsubishi Australia has released pricing and full specification details for the facelifted Eclipse Cross small SUV, which goes on sale on December 1.

All six Eclipse Cross variants are powered by a 110kW/250Nm 1.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with paddle-shifters.
