Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

The Eclipse is Mitsubishi's performance two-door sports car and is offered in coupe and convertible Spyder forms, both with a choice of four-cylinder or V-6 engines. Competitors include the Ford Mustang and Honda Civic Si.
New for 2011
Eclipse coupes now have a black roof. The base GS has a steel roof, while the GS Sport and GT have a power glass sunroof. The pillars remain body-colored and help form a sweeping arc along the sides of the roof. The ride height on all models is 0.6 inches lower for a more aggressive look and less aerodynamic drag. The GS Sport model, added last year, gains standard leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power driver's seat and aluminum pedals and entrance sills.
GS models have similar two-tone front and rear bumper fascias like the GT for a more intimidating look. A backup camera is standard on the GS Sport and GT. Exterior features include:
Although they're listed as four-seaters, for practical purposes the Eclipse and Spyder are suitable for two adults in front and one or two children in the cramped backseat. The backseat folds on the coupe for additional cargo space. All versions have an auxiliary jack for MP3 players. Interior features include:
Standard air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry
Standard jack for MP3 player
Optional 650-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system
Optional leather upholstery
Optional power driver's seat

GS and GS Sport models are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 162 horsepower and 162 pounds-feet of torque. Stepping up to the GT trim brings a 3.8-liter V-6 that delivers 265 hp and 262 pounds-feet of torque. Mechanical features include:
Five-speed manual or four-speed automatic with four-cylinder engine
Six-speed manual or five-speed automatic with V-6
Standard safety features include:
Side-impact airbags for front seats
Side curtain airbags (coupe)
