2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse at Chicago show
The existing Mitsubishi Eclipse, sold only in North America, gets a facelift for the 2009 model year to make it look like the new Lancer Evolution. Except that the Evo remains the true sports car of the range.
The front-wheel-drive Eclipse can be had with a 162 hp 2.4-litre four-cylinder mated to a five-speed manual or an optional four-speed automatic, while a 265 hp 3.8-litre V6 is mated a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
Available in coupe or convertible form, options include HID headlights and stability control, among other items.
Built in America alongside the Galant, the model is not expected to come to the Middle East anytime soon.
