Mitsubishi Motors surprised the industry when it jumped right into 2022 with its model lineup a year ago.

The sporty Eclipse Cross was the latest reveal, and the specs have also been released for all the details.

Trims and Engine Type
For the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, the new lineup is as follows – ES, LE, SE, SE Package, SEL, and SEL Touring. With a S-AWC Drive Mode Selector standard on all trims, this would suggest that Mitsubishi Motors’ own special all-wheel drive system, Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system has also been equipped for superb driver control in a number of conditions. Every trim is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine able to generate 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
Also an in-house tech, an 8-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) transfers the power in every trim. Because of this, the fuel economy is shared across the lineup. The 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a fuel economy of 25 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
Upgraded for 2023, past the LE trim, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with automatic headlights, but LEDs are now the standard for every headlight, daytime running light, and fog lights, high-mount stop light, and taillight on the model. Heated exterior mirrors with turn signal indicators and rear privacy glass are also a lineup standard. Starting with the SE trim, a Black Roof Rails package is an optional add-on. 16-inch wheels come with the ES trim, and 18-inch wheels make up the rest of the lineup. All-season tires are the standard for every trim.
Able to seat five passengers, a standard six-way adjustable driver’s seat can be found on the ES and LE trim, with an 8-way power adjustable driver seat on the rest of the lineup. A 4-way adjustable passenger seat is the standard until the SEL trim, upgrading to an 8-way power adjustable passenger seat. Every trim comes with a 60/40 split-fold rear bench seat with reclining. Starting with the SE trim, an artificial leather shift knob and leather-wrapped steering wheel can be found in the cockpit, and starting with the LE trim, heated front seats are the standard. A heated steering wheel kicks in with the SEL and SEL Touring trims. These two trims can also add heated rear seats with a package.
The setup is much like the 2022 model, with a 7.0-inch touchscreen standard on the ES, with a smartphone-link system on an 8-inch display, Google Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay on the rest of the lineup. Starting with the SE trim, navigation is also added on. Bluetooth wireless technology is a lineup standard, with automatic climate control in the ES and LE, and dual-zone automatic climate control in the rest of the lineup.

Steering wheel audio and phone controls are standard across the lineup, adding voice recognition past the base trim. A rearview camera is also the standard up until the SEL trim.
