Mitsubishi Eclipse

About Mitsubishi Eclipse

After more than two decades on the market and four generations, 2012 marks the final year for the Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe and Spyder (convertible). While this 4-seater once stood out for boasting high-performance features like a turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive at a reasonable price, in recent years the Eclipse has become a merely “sporty” front-wheel-drive car that favors the comfort side of the equation to attract a broader range of buyers. Although the 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse boasts curvaceous looks, a low starting price and a powerful V6 engine option, it lags rivals like the Subaru BRZ/ Scion FR-S, Chevrolet Camaro, Kia Forte Koup, Honda Civic Si and Hyundai Genesis coupe when it comes to powertrain options, refinement and performance.

Mitsubishi is marking the Eclipse’s final year with an SE (special edition) version for both the coupe and Spyder. SE models add styling cues such as smoked-out alloy wheels, black side mirrors and unique decals. For the coupe, four trims are available: GS, GS Sport, SE and GT. The convertible can be had in GS Sport, SE and GT trims.

New front and rear fascias mark the major changes for 2009, with the GT trim receiving an aggressive two-tone front bumper treatment. Also new to the GT is a larger rear spoiler, Active Stability Control and tuned dual exhaust for better sound and more horsepower.

There are not a lot of affordable 2+2 sport convertibles, and this distinctive drop-top Eclipse arrives just in time to reinforce the positive impression made by its 2006 curvacious coupe stablemate. It provides the recently struggling Japanese maker a one-two image punch that says, "Hey, look at us! We have exciting products today and there's more to come."

"Just love this car from the day one. Never had a single problem. Interior plastic is easy to scratch and bad vision on the back is the only minus. Everything else is a plus. This car is a Porsche for the middle class buyers. Most probably my next car will be eclipse again (newer model)."

"Bought this used low miles '07 Eclipse GT after exhaustive research. Great style, performance and comfort for the price and the only coupe/hatch that I can fit my bike in the back and still feel somewhat "sporty". I've only owned it six months but it's been very reliable so far. The rear blind spots are a real issue."

"When I was 16 I dreamed to have this car and I finally got it. It is everything I ever thought it would be. Amazing steering, so fun to drive, speed is awesome (even after some after-market engine upgrades), customizing this car is super fun, and I can go on and on. This car is the best and I love it."
