Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Re-Design

A friend of mine sent me this YouTube video by TheSketchMonkey who re-designs cars on his channel. I gotta say, after watching his video I really like the subtle changes that he made to the wheels and how he smoothed out the back of the Eclipse Cross.

How does everyone else feel about his version of the Eclipse Cross?

IMO, Blah. The back just needs to be a bit longer anyway you look at it. The space is already too small. As for the wheels, the photo he used is of the base model. I have the 18" wheels and they do align as he is doing in his redesign.

I'm good with how the rear end is bulged. It made the vehicle looked muscular. But yeah, a little more space inside. PLEASE!
I'm not that tall, so I can move ALL the seats a little more forward just to have a few more inch in the trunk. But still not enough room if I'm going to pack for my family of 4.

On the other hand, the TIRES though... 😈
Anyone thought of using a 'spacer'?
I'm thinking... aside from making it look better on front and back angle, MAYBE, it will also help with the body roll problem?
Experts please enlighten a newbie here.🤤

When you space is already too small, are you referring to the back end or the interior in general?

The space in the back could use another 6-8"/15-20cm. The cabin area is very comfortable.

Ah ok, that's definitely fair.

Agreed. The cabin is great but I am continually finding that, to get enough boot space, I am sliding the rear seats fully forward. So now, my rear seats are always fully forward and the cargo blind is on the front position and I only move the seats back when I need to put extra people in. Pity really...

I would love to do this but my son has to sit back there. I understand its a crossover, but maybe it should be classified as a mini-crossover.

I feel the wheelbase is holding the EC back from better design. Ugly can help tho... its different.

Just out of curiosity, how much stuff do you usually carry in the back of your Eclipse Cross to move the back seats forward?
