Mitsubishi has given its Eclipse Cross small-medium SUV a refresh for 2023
including a new variant called LS Black Edition and the availability of V2L technology
to some of the plug-in hybrids.

The Eclipse Cross LS Black Edition – it’s not a limited edition – is based on the LS
grade. Priced at $1200 more it adds a black finish to the 18-inch alloy wheels, door
mirrors and front and rear skid plates. Inside, the black theme continues on the
touchscreen surround, dimple leather steering wheel and interior headlining and
pillar trims.

Other extra features above the standard LS include dark silver garnishes on the
instrument panel, centre console sides and door grips, four-way power adjustable
driver’s seat, PVC leather inserts to the front and rear door trim, and heated front

For MY23 the entry-level Eclipse Cross now comes with rear parking sensors as well
as 16-inch alloy wheels and revised steering wheel trim.

The second-highest spec Exceed also get some new black finishes to the radiator
grille, lower door mouldings and skid plates.

The flagship Eclipse Cross Exceed now features a hands-free powered tailgate.

The big news with the updated plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Eclipse Cross Aspire and
Exceed variants is the addition of Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) technology. Accessed via a
three-pin 24-volt power output, V2L allows owners to transfer power from the car’s
drive battery to a range of domestic, office, industrial and leisure appliances.

As before, all Eclipse Cross models have a five-star ANCAP safety rating.

Prices have increased by between $250 and $1500 depending on the models with
the exception of the entry-level ES which is unchanged at $31,490 plus on-road

All Mitsubishi vehicles come with a standard five-year warranty but with distance
limited to 100,000-kilometre. This can be extended to 10 years and 200,000 km by
having all servicing done at registered Mitsubishi dealerships.
