Mitsibishi’s oddly styled Eclipse Cross SUV gets a slight styling makeover for 2022 that makes it look more like a traditional SUV, along with an updated multimedia system and wider availability of some safety features. The refreshed 2022 Eclipse Cross will start at $24,590, including destination, which is $400 more than the outgoing model-year 2020 version (Mitsubishi is skipping model-year 2021). Price bumps for other trims range from $250 to $650.

That price is for the base ES version with front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive can be added to any trim for an additional $1,600. Other trims are priced as follows, as well as their increase from model-year 2020 (all prices include destination): 

  • LE: $25,940 (+$650) 
  • SE: $27,340 (+$500)
  • SEL: $28,590 (+$250)

The 2022 Eclipse Cross is also offered with two equipment packages: the SE With Panorama Package is $28,340 and the SEL With Touring Package is $30,690.

Outside, the 2022 Eclipse Cross grows in size and wears a new bumper, redesigned headlights and a revised version of the brand’s shield grille. Inside, the highlight is a revised multimedia system: Gone is the old touchpad controller and touchscreen display; they’re replaced by a new 8-inch touchscreen with two knobs at its lower corners for volume and tuning. The screen also moves closer to front occupants, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (wired connection) are standard. The new system is standard on LE trims and above; ES trims use a smaller 7-inch system. 

Also of note, Mitsubishi says cargo capacity is up thanks in part to a redesigned rear window and new cargo cover design. The new window setup has a single-pane design versus the previous split window. Mitsubishi says the 2022 model has 23.4 cubic feet of space behind the rear seat, up from the previous version’s 22.6 cubic feet.  

Many trims get new standard features for 2022. Heated driver and front passenger seats are standard on LE, SE and SEL trims, and a heated steering wheel is standard on the SEL trim. The SEL With Touring Package model adds heated rear seats.

The 2022 Eclipse Cross also gets more standard safety features.  All models now have a forward collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection; lane departure warning is also standard. In addition, automatic high-beam headlights and rain-sensing wipers are standard on LE, SE and SEL trim levels. Blind spot warning, lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on SE and above models. 

The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will go on sale by early March.
