Mitsubishi revealed the new Eclipse Cross yesterday at the 2017 Los Angeles auto show and it comes with an affordable $23,295 price tag.

Once order books are open, customers can choose from four trim levels starting with the entry-level ES version, followed by the LE, SE and SEL. No matter which variant you choose, they are all powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Also standard across the lineup is all-wheel-drive and a continuously variable transmission.

Those who opt for the ES won’t be disappointed with its list of features including heated power side view mirrors, Bluetooth, rear view camera, climate control, Bluetooth, color display, cruise control, power door locks and windows, and anti-theft alarm.

One step up is the Limited Edition (LE) version with unique trim pieces, a 7-inch with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. The there’s the SE trim with more safety features like Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. It’ll also get heated front seats, Fast-key passive entry, push button start, electronic parking brake with auto hold, Mitsubishi Connect, some 18-inch two-tone Alloy wheels, and extra exterior styling accents.

The range topping SEL model comes with additional features on top of the aforementioned standard ones such as leather upholstery, LED headlights, Head-Up Display and the Multi-View Camera system.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross should start appearing on showroom floors next March.

At that price Mitsubishi shouldn't have a problem moving these because just about everything else you can get has boring designs that you can easily find elsewhere. On the other hand, the Eclipse Cross is in a way the first of its kind to get this design language.

Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue are serious competitors in the compact segment, moreover, I don't think that their designs are boring. What do you think about these cars?

Well for one it goes well beyond design and more about the entire package. But starting from the very top is which brand people are most comfortable with, followed by how they like the specs. Rarely do I see people jumping from brand to brand.

With how cheap the Eclipse Cross is compared to some of its competitors, it could lure away those who are not as badge loyal from other brands. Helps that it's easy on the eyes and the ES variant is so well equipped.

Its cheaper but often that comes at a compromise in ways that can be a deal breaker and one of those is how bad that CVT transmission its powerplant. Instead of further complementing its performance, instead it takes away. That for me can be a deal breaker.
