Local testing and development work include suspension and steering calibration, powertrain assessment and NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) control to ensure the Eclipse Cross best meets the requirements of Australian customers.

What we do know however is that the model is likely to be offered with the choice of a 1.5 litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a CVT auto.

A 2.2 litre turbo-diesel is also expected to be in the mix too, that engine coming exclusively with an eight-speed auto transmission.

While connectivity is expected to be covered with the standard fitment of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
