The Mitsubishi Eclipse is back... well, sort of

Mitsubishi has previously confirmed the new model will sit alongside the ASX compact SUV and the Outlander mid-size SUV, while not specifying whether it will be smaller or larger than either.

As is nearly always the case, the Eclipse Cross is more aesthetically conservative than its preceding concept; the XR-PHEV's hidden door handles, for example, have been replaced with conventional items on the Eclipse Cross. The Eclipse Cross will be part of a trio of new crossovers that the automaker plans to bring to markets worldwide, focusing on that hot segment instead of its more familiar coupes, sedans and light trucks.

It's not clear if the Eclipse Cross badge will make its way stateside when the crossover goes on sale here, but the transition from '90s tuner hit to family-hauler could revive more than just the nameplate.

Court orders arrest of ex-president Alejandro Toledo
The government of Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was pressuring the United States to change its mind, the source said. But his former vice president, David Waisman - himself a prominent member of Peru's Jewish community - said that was untrue.

It's not clear whether the Outlander's plug-in-hybrid drivetrain will be made available to the Eclipse Cross, though it would appear to be an obvious route for expansion of the technology that has redefined Mitsubishi sales, particularly in the UK.

All will be revealed at the big event in Switzerland, commencing March 7. The new auto is built around a shortened version of the Outlander architecture. Mitsubishi pulled the plug on the plant altogether then shut it down a year ago, according to Automotive News.
