Available in three trim levels - the 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic
transmission-equipped Eclipse GS, the well-appointed mid-grade Eclipse GS Sport
with a 4-speed automatic transmission, and the top-of-the-line Eclipse GT and
its enthusiast driver-oriented 5-speed Sportronic automatic transmission with
manual shifting capability - the Eclipse Coupe is produced in the United States.
New for 2011
Black Painted Roof: For 2011, the
Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Sport reveals its dark side. The car now features a very
eye-catching greenhouse painted in black that is sandwiched between body-colored
sheetmetal that stretches from the sweeping A- to C-pillars. This exciting new
design element is not only aesthetically pleasing but pays tribute to the
highly-successful original first-generation Eclipse Coupe that possessed a
similarly dark-colored dome.
Ride Height Reduction: The 2011
Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Sport now sports a ride height that has been lowered by
over half an inch (15 mm), giving this remarkable sports car a sharper-looking,
lower-profile stance. This reduced vehicle ride height has the additional
benefit of slightly decreasing the car's aerodynamic drag, which helps to
improve the Eclipse Coupe's overall fuel economy.
12V Accessory Outlet:
A handy new feature on the 2011 Eclipse GS Sport is the addition of a 12V
accessory power outlet. Ideally situated in the center console, it allows for
the convenient powering/recharging and access to popular portable electronic
devices including an iPod or a GPS navigation system.
Luxury Amenities for the 2011 Eclipse Coupe GS Sport: The mid-level Eclipse
GS Sport benefits from a richly expanded standard equipment package that
receives numerous luxury upgrades with no additional increase to the car's MSRP.
This improved package includes leather seating surfaces, heated front seats and
side view mirrors, power driver seat, aluminum pedals, a strut tower brace,
aluminum entrance sill and a tidy-looking clear lip spoiler.
Curvaceous Coupe Design
There's no doubt the current generation
Mitsubishi Eclipse has earned a solid reputation as a dynamic sports
machine with a luxurious "attainable exotic" flair, but it is the car's utterly
unique styling that truly sets it apart from its competition.
Eclipse's very distinctive, curvaceous design theme is demonstrated most
prominently in the car's boldly arcing roofline and the flared fenders at all
four corners of the vehicle. The car's shapely rear end also exhibits a
similarly pronounced, rounded flavor.
