Just last week, Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) released a teaser for the new 2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. With very little to go on, we’re not yet sure how much the crossover has changed in appearance, inside and out. We do, however, expect some good technology upgrades. Always getting the best Mitsubishi has to offer, the Eclipse Cross was one of the first vehicles to get a smartphone link display, Mitsubishi Motors ventured into infotainment systems and more interactive touchscreens with smartphone interfaces. Keeping connected with its consumers, Mitsubishi is one of many automakers developing smartphone apps to help keep consumers safe and keep their vehicles in great shape. The latest app from MMNA is the My MITSUBISHI CONNECT.

Right now, it’s not very flashy, but Mitsubishi Motors is the kind of automaker that works on multiple little things and then bring it all together into one big thing. My MITSUBISHI CONNECT is just a small piece of an even bigger puzzle. Right now, the mobile app has one main focus – help consumers make automotive maintenance easier. It sounds simple, right? But think about it – how many times have you realized you forgot to get an oil change because you couldn’t be bothered to take your car in for maintenance?

Mitsubishi Motors has had some surprising announcements this year. Possibly their most talked about debut would be the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, alongside its Dendo Drive House (DDH) proposition. All of this good news could possibly be overshadowing their most recent addition to the automotive lineup, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. This vehicle has also had some good news as of late, such as earning a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is also known for its upgraded technology, such as a Mitsubishi Connect Telematics System with Safeguard, able to work with a recent smartphone app released by Mitsubishi, Road Assist+. With all these additions, Mitsubishi Motors continues to win awards for the Eclipse Cross overseas.

It took Mitsubishi Motors some time to break into the North American automotive market. Looking back at 100 years of Mitsubishi Motors, and it wasn’t until the 1980s that they joined the party. So of course, back in their homeland of Japan, there’s plenty of recognition for the last in-house vehicle, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. One group in particular, holds an event every year, the Automotive Researchers’ & Journalists’ Conference of Japan (RJC), and for the second consecutive year, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was also named the “RJC Car of the Year” for 2019.
