New Mitsubishi SUV’s residual value is best in segment

LONDON: The all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers the highest residual values in its segment, according to British industry experts Cap hpi.
Cap hpi has forecast that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2, which launches in January 2018, will retain up to 48.1 percent of its list price after three years or 60,000 miles, while the Eclipse Cross 3 will retain up to 47.5 percent of its value and even the top-of-the-range Eclipse Cross 4 will retain 46.9 percent of its value, placing the new Mitsubishi SUV firmly among the very best in its segment.
It is also one of the strongest results ever achieved by the brand’s vehicles. Heightening its appeal and value is an extensive standard specification that compares favorably to that of its rivals.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross benefits from standard equipment such as Smartphone Display Audio that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, touchpad controller, rear-view camera, DAB radio with six speakers, climate control air-conditioning, LED daytime running lights, lane departure warning and forward collision mitigation, which uses radar technology to detect a risk of collision.
