The Mitsubishi EC has won a spot in the Good Designs Awards for 2018. The Japanese organization behind these awards cited the Eclipse as having "a bold wedge profile, that's very striking." Say what you will able the practicality of a full taillight running through the rear window, but it does help distinguish this car from key rivals. The Good Design Award has been the sole design evaluation system in Japan since 1957.

I think Mitsubishi should get recognition for actually doing something original with the EC. With how crowded the crossover segment has become, we are seeing far too many automakers take a cookie cutter approach.

I agree! The styling (the split rear window and brake light, the twin sunroofs, the placement of the audiovisual display), the mechanics (the gear-change paddles combined with the CVT and small-but-powerful petrol turbo engine), and the electronics (the jet-fighter-type head-up-display) combine to make a genuinely original SUV.

And I think Mitsubishi is getting recognition from the customers - I think the sales must be well above their expectations.
