Although there has yet to be an official release date for the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, more information is released about it every so often. When we first heard about this throwback, there were a lot of people wondering if Mitsubishi Motors had lost it. Turning a once sports car into a crossover variation had a 50/50 shot at success. However, with the lineup cutting down on small cars and shifting with the auto industry into a more SUV and crossover market, it’s possible they can pull it off.

Jump forward to the Geneva International Motor Show when the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross debuted. We talked a lot about its aesthetics, the style, and new technology popping up (literally and figuratively). Recently, Mitsubishi Motors released a video teasing the technology found in the Eclipse Cross, and it’s shaping up nicely. Perfect timing too, because we just covered the lack of a true Mitsubishi infotainment system not too long ago.

Secrets Behind Mitsubishi’s Free Infotainment System

It seems like every auto brand and their brother has an infotainment system these days. If you have a Dodge or Chrysler, you most likely have Uconnect, the FCA system. If you have a Mitsubishi, you may be a little perplexed. See, Mitsubishi doesn’t have a branded infotainment system to call their own, not yet anyways. However, they’ve done a bang up job of combining some great things to make it work.

What Does Mitsubishi Have in Place of an Infotainment System?

Infotainment systems are made up of hardware and software that provide drivers and passengers with entertainment, tools, and information. To take care of this, Mitsubishi nailed down the top features with modern technology available today.

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

A Look Back at the Record Smashing Lancer Evo

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

Just because a vehicle is discontinued doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not good. Lots of vehicles have been discontinued over the years, sometimes due to sales numbers or because the auto market is shifting. Today, we’re seeing SUVs, crossovers, and green energy dominating the market, so when an auto brand has a performance car, they tend to limit the numbers. Dodge is only producing a little over 3000 units of the 2018 Dodge SRT Demon, and Kia is still working out the final production of the Kia Stinger. There is a performance vehicle we know all too well that was discontinued in 2016, but leaves some of us wondering why – the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Mitsubishi discontinued the Lancer Evolution years ago, and the final Lancer Evolution Final Edition was auctioned off in late 2016. This was mostly due to some troubles Mitsubishi Motors was having here in the U.S. With the struggles the brand was facing, furthering production of a performance car, not Mitsubishi’s forte, wouldn’t be a smart move. So the project was shut down while Mitsubishi turned its attention to SUVs, crossovers, and green vehicles, where the auto market is now. The Lancer Evo was an old car though, having gone through ten generations, and many fans were sad to see it go.

Summerize Your Car – Here’s How

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi Summer Car

This month will cast the official start of the summer, and you know what that means. Sun (and rain), blue skies (sometimes cloudy), and the beach (more rain). For the “Sunshine State” Florida seems to get more rain than any of the 50 states, and yet here we are. Maybe it’s just the leftovers from spring and we’ll get sunny skies soon. Before then though, there’s something you should do – summerize your car.

Prep It

Before we go about investing in accessories, prepare your car for summer heat and salty air. We discussed plenty of things one can do in our article on beach proofing your car. We’ll cover a few here too, mainly when it comes to avoiding the heat on the inside rather the exterior. To prep a vehicle for the summer, some average maintenance is always a good practice. Make sure everything is running properly, especially the a/c system. Nothing is worse than driving in a hot car where rolling down the windows just makes it worse.

While getting your car checked out, think of getting some tint on the windows done. This can help reduce some of the heat build up if your vehicle doesn’t have sunscreen or solar glass. Another good way to prep is to use a type of moisture repellent around and inside your car. RainX is a great brand for items like this. They can be used on various parts of your vehicle to keep them clean and protected.
