Strong residual values forecast for Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will retain nearly 50% of its list price after three years, according to Cap HPI.
Cap HPI forecast the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2 to retain 48.1% of its list price after three years or 60,000 miles, while the Eclipse Cross 3 is predicted to retain 47.5% of its value and the top-of-the-range Eclipse Cross 4 46.9% of its value. Mitsubishi believe this to be amongst the best residuals in the Eclipse’s segment.
Due for launch in January 2018, the SUV will be available priced from £21,275 OTR, with a four-wheel drive variant available from £25,350 – which the carmaker says is the most affordable of its type in its class.
From launch, all variants are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, mated to six-speed manual or all-new eight-step CVT automatic transmissions. A 2.2-litre diesel engine will follow in 2018.
