The rumors were put right. Mitsubishi announced Tuesday its new crossover will be called the Eclipse Cross. Based on the companionship’s statements, the idea is this crossover has coupe-like style, which is why Mitsubishi chose the celebr of its well-known Eclipse two-door. In this form, however, it will also be a mundane crossover – hence the Cross name.

Mitsubishi also released a few more teaser images that lap up a fair amount of the sport-ute. From what we can tell, the design closely follows that of the XR-PHEV II concept shown at Geneva two years ago. While the Outshine Cross is certainly toned down compared with that concept, it calm shares the basic grille treatment, side character line, taillights, and back glass design.

We’ll admit we’re sad to see the name of a classic Japanese sports coupe decide up residence on a small sport utility vehicle. In part because it just doesn’t feel quite appropriate. But, also because it means we won’t see a sports car with the name. Of order, Mitsubishi could go a long way to making us feel better by making, say, a high-acting, all-wheel-drive version of this crossover. It could be called Eclipse Hybrid GSX. Feel free to use that idea, Mitsubishi.
