2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Price $400 Higher, Still under $25K

  • Updated styling, more standard equipment, and a new infotainment system are all included in the upgrades to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SUV for 2022.
  • There’s also new standard driver-assistance features and revisions to the SUV’s suspension system.
  • Pricing starts at $24,590, and the updated Eclipse Cross should go on sale this spring.

    Mitsubishi’s restyled 2022 Eclipse Cross, unveiled last fall, got many upgrades and an updated exterior. Still, the automaker announced today that its base price has increased by a mere $400, with a base price of $24,590. The Eclipse Cross is one of just four Mitsubishi models on sale in the U.S. right now and, until the redesigned Outlander SUV goes on sale, it’s the most modern offering from the Japanese automaker.

    The updated 2022 Eclipse Cross (Mitsubishi skipped the 2021 model year for this vehicle) ditches the awkward two-window rear hatchback design of the 2020 model and inherits a number of front-end styling enhancements. Mitsubishi has also upgraded the Eclipse Cross’s cabin by including a new 8.0-inch infotainment display on LE, SE, and SEL models. The center console has been tweaked, and the top-spec SEL trim can now be ordered with light-gray leather upholstery and a power-adjustable passenger seat.

    Although the wheelbase hasn’t changed, the 2022 Eclipse Cross is 5.0 inches longer overall than the previous model year. Passenger space has remained the same, but Mitsubishi says total interior cargo space has increased slightly to 50.1 cubic feet—an improvement of 1.2 cubic feet. All models now come standard with driver-assistance features such as forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning. More advanced features, including automatic high-beam headlamps, are also available.

    Changes to the SUV’s suspension are intended to improve ride quality and include retuned shocks and springs. What hasn’t changed is the Eclipse Cross’s powertrain, which consists of a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional on all four of the Eclipse Cross’s trims for $1600.

    The base ES trim starts at $24,590, which makes it about $2000 cheaper to start than segment leaders such as the 10Best award-winning Mazda CX-5, the Honda CR-V, and the Volkswagen Tiguan. Midrange LE and SE models start at $25,940 and $27,340, respectively; a panoramic sunroof is optional on the SE for $1000 and is bundled with black-painted roof rails.

    The topmost SEL model starts at $28,590 and comes fairly loaded, although a $2100 Touring package is available and adds heated rear seats, the panoramic sunroof, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, and an eight-speaker stereo system, among other items. Expect to see the 2022 Eclipse Cross in Mitsubishi dealerships this spring.
