The Drive

The new generation Eclipse Cross is highly engineered to give you the ultimate driving experience. A direct injection turbo engine offers agile handling and makes it fun to drive and a full-time four-wheel drive system offers superior stability and cornering.

Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC)

Outstanding 4-wheel drive stability

The advanced, full-time four-wheel drive system controls the driving and braking force to each wheel. The result is more focused drive power, better cornering and better stability in all driving conditions. This integrated system works through a combination of Active Yaw Control (AYC), Active Stability Control (ASC) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Better roadholding

Active Yaw Control (AYC)

Active Yaw Control is a unique system which we invented. It improves cornering by using the brakes to optimally distribute torque to the left and right wheels. So even if you brake or accelerate too hard, you still maintain control.

Stability in all conditions

Active Stability Control (ASC)

Active Stability Control uses sensors to analyse the vehicle’s motion and identify any unstable movement. It then automatically distributes torque and braking power to the left or right wheels to maintain stability.

No locked brakes

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

An anti-lock Braking System is designed to prevent skidding. It works by stopping the wheels from locking up during braking, so they're always in contact with the road surface.


Responsive yet economical

The newly developed 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine has direct fuel injection. Although smaller in size, it's more responsive, with punchy acceleration and the kind of torque you’d find on a 2.4L engine. It's also more fuel efficient, so it's better for your pocket and the environment.


Greater traction when you need it

Enhance the Eclipse Cross's off-road traction even further with the Drive Mode Selector switch. Choose between 3 modes: Normal, Gravel and Snow.


Smooth, stable handling

The suspension on the Eclipse Cross has been fine-tuned to offer stable, smooth handling without compromising comfort.
