A few months ago, Mitsubishi announced a series of updates for the Eclipse Cross in its homeland of Japan, and the 2024 model has now officially launched in Australia.
One of the most important novelties is the new Black Edition model, which has evolved into a standalone trim level. Sitting between the ES and LS, and the Aspire and Exceed, it comes with 18-inch alloys, glossy black details on the outside, roof rail delete, black interior with silver garnishes and gray stitching, PVC leather inserts, heated front seats, micro-suede and synthetic leather on the seats, USB sockets at the rear, and more safety systems compared to the LS.

As for the rest of the 2024 Eclipse Cross and Eclipse Cross PHEV, Mitsubishi says they feature additional gizmos. These include the dusk-sensing headlamps that lack an off switch, rain-sensing wipers, an LED rear fog lamp on the driver's side, a soundproof windshield, and a standard lane departure warning. Available colors vary depending on the grade and comprise the White, White Diamond, Sterling Silver, Black, Red Diamond, Lightning Blue, and Titanium. A host of upholstery options is also on deck.

Buying a 2024 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in Australia means paying a minimum of AU$31,990 (equal to $20,805) for the base ES. The LS comes from AU$34,740 ($22,594), and the Black Edition and Aspire start at AU$35,990 ($23,407) and AU$36,990 (US$24,057), respectively. The top-of-the-line Exceed has a recommended retail price of AU$40,990 (US$26,659). An all-wheel-drive system is available on the LS and Exceed and kicks off at AU$37,240 (US$24,220) and AU$43,490 (US$28,285), respectively.

All versions of the 2024 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross use a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. It develops 110 kW (150 ps/147 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque, returns 7.3 l/100 km (32.2 US mpg) on average, and emits 165 g/km of CO2. The ES, Aspire, and Exceed are also available with a plug-in hybrid assembly. It mixes a 2.4L gasoline engine with front and rear electric motors fed by a 13.8 kWh battery pack. These models benefit from standard all-wheel drive and start from AU$47,790 (US$31,081), AU$51,740 (US$33,650), and AU$56,490 (US$36,740), respectively.

According to the Japanese car manufacturer, the entire Eclipse Cross range comes with a 10-year/200,000 km (124,274 miles) manufacturer's warranty and 10-year capped price servicing. It also has up to four years of complimentary roadside assistance, and the PHEV has an additional warranty covering the battery for eight years/160,000 km (99,419 miles), whichever comes first. The 2024 Eclipse Cross sold in the United States is available in the ES, LE, SE, SE Panoramic Sunroof, SEL, and SEL Touring grades. It starts from $26,345 before destination and tops at over $32,295 when it comes to the best-equipped trim level.
