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.

A new trim, the GS Sport, combines the aggressive exterior styling of the GT with the fuel efficiency of the four-cylinder GS. Last year's Sun and Sound Package is now part of the GT's standard equipment list.

The Eclipse Spyder receives a new front and rear fascia, with the GT trim gaining a new, throaty dual exhaust and Active Stability Control. New colors include a yellow paint bright enough to earn the name "Solar."

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."

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.

"The Spyder places itself in a paradox. It has a backseat that is only adequate for small people, making it a poor 2 2, but a great roadster. The ride and performance is sporty for a 2007 offering. The appointments on this car are geared towards the utilitarian sports crowd with a few options that give a hint towards the luxury side. The best attribute is the rear styling. I love the rear of this car. The front styling is boring, but certainly not an eyesore. Overall, I am still impressed by the looks of this machine. Some of the short comings: Turning radius Tiny rear window Requires premium gas"

"I really like owning this car. Everyday I am happy to see it sitting in the driveway. It is fun to drive and handles fine. I was a little concerned that it might not handle the snow and ice we get in Michigan, but if you drive sensibly you shouldn't have a problem. It does have a little bit of trouble starting on ice, but nothing you wouldn't expect from a sporty little car. There is quite a large blind spot when looking towards the rear passenger side, but that just makes me keep a closer watch on where people are around me. That way I know if they drive into that place. My Eclipse is pretty basic, I didn't get any of the super cool add ons, I like to keep things simple. So far though everything in my car seems to work great. One issue I did notice was the window on the drivers side had some issues popping back up when I shut the door on some of the really cold days this winter, but as soon as the weather warmed up it was fine. There wasn't any ice on the window so I just assumed the electrical stuff was too cold or something. Avoid potholes at all cost! Tires for this car are not cheap, and need to be special ordered!"

"No end to the fun I have in this car. Driven it across the country, north and south, east and west. it's a head turner. People don't beleive me when I tell them what it costs. Unfortunately, Mitsubishi doesn't make it anymore."
