Vehicle Overview

The four-seat 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 power. Competitors include the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Honda Civic Si. This is the final model year for the Eclipse.

New for 2012
The Eclipse's 18-inch alloy wheels have a dark finish, but there are no other significant changes for 2012.

Exterior
GS models have similar two-tone front and rear bumpers like the GT for a more intimidating look. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Optional high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Available backup camera
  • Available aero kit
  • Available power glass sunroof

Interior
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 MP3 jack. Interior features include:

  • Standard air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry
  • Optional Rockford Fosgate sound system
  • Optional leather upholstery
  • Optional power driver's seat

Under the Hood
The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder 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 transmission with four-cylinder engine
  • Five-speed automatic with V-6

Safety
Standard safety features include:

  • Antilock brakes
  • Side-impact airbags for front seats
  • Side curtain airbags (coupe)
  • Electronic stability system
