The all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is yet to be officially launched in the UK and has already shortlisted for the Golden Steering Wheel Award in Germany.

The forthcoming model is nominated in the highly competitive ‘Small SUV’ category of the annual awards by Auto Express’ Auto Bild. The awards identify the best new cars across five different categories and the public are invited to vote for their favourites. A panel of expert judges from the UK, Germany and France sought out the finalists and evaluate each entry – whereby after rigorous evaluation, the winners are announced.

Lance Bradley - Managing Director at Mitsubishi Motors UK, reported: “The Eclipse Cross has generated a huge amount of interest and this nomination proves just how eagerly awaited it is as well as the impact it is destined to have on its segment. It’s already amassed thousands of admirers and we’re looking forward to seeing their enthusiasm turn into a lot of votes.”

Representing a new direction for the brand, the all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross introduces Mitsubishi Motors into the mid-size SUV field for the first time and instantly sets itself apart with its expressive and bold appeal.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is set to go on sale in the UK in January 2018 with pricing and UK specification announced closer to the launch date.
