2016 Mitsubishi Eclipse: Redesign Exterior and Interior

There is a plethora of new and exciting which are well ahead of its time and offer a very unconventional, attractive and futuristic to this 2016 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

  • Its head lights and tail lights have been fully redesigned to give them a design from the future. Sleek, as these lights are, they create a wonderful impression on anyone who happens to lay their eyes upon them. Added to that, these head lights and tail lights come equipped with LED technology to make it stick even more to its futuristic designing and concept.
  • Mitsubishi has been clever enough to make a new addition of a pair of two water intake pipes with the shape resembling that of a triangle.
  • Also, this new Mitsubishi Eclipse features a set of two oval pipes to serve as exhaust outlets.
  • Body has been made very muscular and beefy looking, constructed out of aluminium panels which weight less than any other commonly used material. By doing so, Mitsubishi has been successful in reducing the weight of this car, thus has also considerably reduced fuel consumption figures. This factor will obviously give it an edge over its competitors.
  • A sporty roof line which gradually descends down all the way to its rear spoilers which are small and round and sleek looking and are placed on its rear trunk.
  • Edge of this 2016 Mitsubishi Eclipse will feature sporty aluminium alloy rods which are five in number
  • Sporty and chic front grille on the bumper which is complete with the inclusion of curves and grooves.

The interior fabrication and look of this new 2016 Mitsubishi Eclipse will depend heavily on the power of your pocket. Some of the features that come with this Eclipse from Mitsubishi are:

  • Exciting new colour combinations.
  • Wooden panels and trims.
  • Premium quality leather wrapping for the seats and dash board which gives them a comfortable and sophisticated feel.
  • Steering wheel also covered up in leather wrapping and feels great to hold.

    I have my eye on this and should be the last car I ever buy!
    I currently own a 99 with only 74000 on the OD no problems whatsoever and so if I play my cards right I can surly grab one more for the road.
    Good company great cars.

    Love my Eclipses but until the release another Turbo, I will not be buying.

  5. Ryan says:

    This is a prime example why Mitsubishi is failing in the car industry. I love Mitsubishi to death but the Evo x will be the last Mitsubishi i’ll own. No new ideas and the same platform since 2000. Only way they will sell these well is if they make it rwd.

    My 2011 Black Beauty Eclipse saved my life. The car was totaled, front completely gone. I walked away with just a small red welt. This Eclipse was my third one. Needless to say, I missed my baby and found no more vehicles were being made. I then bought a new 2015 Dodge Challenger. It’s a beautiful black car, but very big for me. Will definitell buy a new Eclipse when it hits the marketplace.

    I currently have a 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse V6 GT with 189,000. One owner and maintenance done on this car. I can tell you that this is amazing in performance and quality. I never had any major issues with this car and I am definitely looking forward to getting the new 2016 model.

    I have a 2006 Eclipse & I’m ready to give it up & buy a new one. Where can you buy this one because the car dealers don’t have them?
