2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross pricing and specs detailed: Nissan Qashqai, Subaru XV, Honda HR-V and Volkswagen T-Roc rival gets special editions

The Eclipse Cross now has two special-edition grades.

Mitsubishi Australia has added two new special-edition grades to the recently facelifted Eclipse Cross small SUV’s range.

The XLS ($34,640 plus on-road costs) is based on the Eclipse Cross’ lower-specification LS grade, with its $2050 premium adding gloss-black exterior trim, adaptive cruise control (with stop and go functionality), surround-view cameras and front parking sensors.

And inside, an eight-speaker sound system, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and suede/artificial leather upholstery feature.

Then there’s the aptly named XLS Plus (from $37,940), which also includes LED headlights, a double sunroof, satellite navigation, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel, a power-adjustable passenger seat, leather upholstery and ultrasonic misacceleration mitigation.

As reported, the small SUV’s fresh special editions were made to tackle ongoing supply issue and buyer preference for particular features.

For reference, no matter the variant, the Nissan Qashqai, Subaru XV, Honda HR-V and Volkswagen T-Roc rival is powered by a 110kW/250Nm 1.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine.

A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) (with paddle-shifters) is also standard alongside front-wheel drive, although the LS, XLS Plus and Exceed grades have the option of Mitsubishi’s S-AWC all-wheel-drive system for an extra $2500.
