I got the embed code from a certain point because I had a separate video that's included in this one that's posted in another thread. But this gives you some nice angles and interior looks for the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Biggest thing I hate about the EC is the fact they used the sale style touch pad as Lexus. Not only does it look bad but the one Lexus has is said to have weird feedback, its not like what you'd expect from a smartphone. Maybe Mitsu learned.

I've never really got to play around with one but this may sound like a dumb question. Can you use the touchpad wearing leather gloves? Typically I have my gloves on when I drive in the colder seasons, and I know they do have touchpads that are like heat sensitive so you can't accidentally swipe anything or whatever.

never tried it myself, so i wouldnt know.

you can try going on some of the lexus communities out there and see what they have to say, clublexus is a big one.
but theres no reason to always have gloves on, most cars these days heat up enough even if there arent heated steering wheels and the like.

Apparently a lot of people don't like it and prefer using the joystick. Some mention that it's overly sensitive, some mention it's just difficult to use and way too distracting. Majority of the people in the thread disabled the haptic feedback though as the "zap" really bothers them.

I can see why even without using it myself.

BMW had it right from the start since the mid 00's and today it holds true. Having a dial button is the only ideal option for me. For a luxurious product, Range Rover does it best with a retractable dial....class and function all in one.

BMW has a dial that also incorporates a touch pad on-top of the dial if I remember correctly.

Retractable dials are seriously cool but that's just way too high tech for a manufacturer like Mitsubishi to incorporate, at least they won't for a very long time.

and to think this is just what they have right now, all during the launch months.
somewhere I heard they might launch a higher performing trim which IMO is the right thing to do, if they're going to use the Eclipse name.... there are expectations that follow.

I'm actually fine with the large c-pillar. Maybe it'll look better in person but it doesn't affect my range of vision and for backing in I have the rear view camera. Though it does look a little empty, could use a badge of some kind.

How are you able to tell that it won't impact your visibility without having been in the vehicle? That's quite the statement to make which at this point is a wild assumption. Unless you have some level of experience with it that most of us haven't.

Their ad campaign is out and there's a few interesting videos on the list including one where the Eclipse Cross is seen drifting in the snow.

Thanks for sharing. I've been eager to see how this unique AWD system performs, and I'm looking forward to some more field testing. Seems be a pretty good system considering the entry price.
