The SUV’s safety systems and crashworthiness

The NHTSA put the 2020 Eclipse Cross through the New Car Assessment Program to determine how safe the vehicle is in crash situations. The SUV earned five stars for its performance in the passenger side frontal-crash test and combined side crash ratings. It also received four stars on the driver’s side and rollover test.

“The safety of our customers on the road is of the utmost importance to us, and receiving a 5-Star rating from NHTSA validates our engineers’ efforts to design the highest level of quality and safety into every vehicle we build,” said Cason Grover, director, product planning, MMNA. 

For the 2020 model year, the Eclipse Cross has more driver assistance systems available across its trim levels as well as more trim configurations. The two-wheel-drive model has increased availability, and its performance features help you better handle the road.

The Active Yaw Control system further helps you stay stable on different terrains. The SE and SEL trims now come standard with Automatic High Beams, Forward-Collision Mitigation, and Lane Departure Warning.

The Eclipse Cross is also backed with a number of Mitsubishi warranties. These include a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable New Vehicle Limited Warranty, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty, and a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. Mitsubishi also has 5-year/Unlimited Miles Roadside Assistance to help you have peace of mind.
