Why choose the used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross?
With their sporty styling, these used compact crossovers stand apart from the competition. These Eclipse Cross models are also known for their impressive list of standard features, which includes a rearview camera, automatic climate control, and a 7-inch infotainment touch screen. And the standard infotainment system is easy to use, another plus. You’ll also love how these used crossovers move, thanks to their sporty, turbocharged engines. And, depending on mileage and model year, these Mitsubishi crossovers also come with impressive warranty coverage (see below).
Is the used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross AWD or 4WD?
Up until the 2020 model year, most Eclipse Cross models came standard with all-wheel drive performance technology. You’ll find this standard all-wheel drive on all but the base ES trim model.
Although the entry-level ES didn’t come standard with all-wheel drive, it was optional. With all-wheel drive, these base models were known as the ES S-AWC trim models.
Beginning with the 2020 model year, all four trim models (ES, LE, SE, and SEL) were available with either two- or all-wheel drive. This means that, from 2020 on, you’ll need to do a little extra digging to find a used Eclipse Cross with this traction-boosting performance gear.
How has the used Mitsubishi Eclipse changed over the years?
The used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has only been around since the 2018 model year, so you won’t actually see too many changes from year to year.
However, there were a few notable changes for the 2020 model year. As we mentioned, the 2020 Eclipse Cross no longer came standard with all-wheel drive. Instead, all-wheel drive was optional for every model, denoted as S-AWC in the trim name (e.g., the LE S-AWC or SE S-AWC).
The 2020 Eclipse Cross SE model, second only to the upscale SEL in the hierarchy, introduced some newly standard safety features, including forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
Is the Mitsubishi warranty transferable to used shoppers?
Almost all of Mitsubishi’s original warranty coverage transfers to the subsequent owners. As long as your used Eclipse Cross meets the original mileage or age terms of the Mitsubishi’s warranty coverage, you should be able to use it.
The one exception is the powertrain warranty, which lasts 10 years or 100,000 miles for original owners but drops to five years or 60,000 miles for subsequent owners.
