Family Friendly Accessories for the 2020 Eclipse Cross

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross | Charlotte, NC

The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a fantastic vehicle for small families all on its own. But some accessories can add even more family-friendly functionality to the 2020 Eclipse Cross, so here’s what you should look for.

All-Weather Floor Mats

Getting all-weather floor mats put into your vehicle could be a carpet saver, especially when you have young passengers in the back seats.  These mats can protect your floors from juice and food spills, plus keep mud, snow and rainwater from destroying the carpets. When it’s time you can easily remove them for an easy clean.

Cargo Management System

The available Cargo Management System can help you keep your Eclipse Cross organized during every drive. When you don’t need it set up you can easily collapse it and store it, giving it the ultimate functionality.

Roadside Assistance Kit

If you happen to break down on the side of the road, the Roadside Assistance Kit can help you get your vehicle up and running again. It contains essentials like gloves, a tarp, jumper cables, tools, and glow sticks to help you fix your vehicle or flag down a passerby for help.

Roof Rails

Finally, there are plenty of family-fun activities that can be made easier by adding roof rails. You can easily find a way to attach multiple bikes or even a canoe to the top of your Eclipse Cross, so you can enjoy a great family adventure.

You can get all of the latest and greatest Mitsubishi accessories at Larry Jay Mitsubishi in Charlotte.

3 Eclipse Cross Accessories that Charlotte Drivers Need to Have

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross | Charlotte, NC

Want to enhance your Eclipse Cross in new and exciting ways? Aftermarket accessories let you augment your Mitsubishi crossover SUV how you want, equipping new tools and comforts to improve your ride. These are some of the Eclipse Cross accessories you can buy from Larry Jay Mitsubishi.

Rubber Floor Mats

Just because your Eclipse Cross comes with basic carpet mats doesn’t mean you shouldn’t replace them — especially if you live in Charlotte, where the rain and mud get sloppy. Buy a set of durable all-weather mats for your Mitsubishi that won’t soak up moisture and become moldy.

Roof Rail Rack

If you plan to go camping or kayaking in North Carolina, like at nearby Lake Wylie, install roof rails in your Eclipse Cross. This gives you extra storage space so you don’t fill the back seat with long, bulky items.

Hood Protector

If you spend a lot of time on the highways or gravel country roads, get a hood protector for your Eclipse Cross. It’s a simple yet useful tool that will shield incoming rocks and debris from scratching and denting the hood. 

If you want to take your Eclipse Cross or other Mitsubishi vehicle to the next level, contact the parts counter at Larry Jay Mitsubishi. We’d be happy to show you what we can install in your SUV.

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross | Larry Jay Mitsubishi | Charlotte, NC

After the 2019 model year earned itself an IIHS Top Safety Pick title, it’s no surprise the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross claimed a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA. The Eclipse Cross offers advanced safety features to deliver a reassuring drive, whether you’re flying solo or bringing the whole family.

 

Four- and Five-Star Crash Test Ratings

The Eclipse Cross was tested by the NHTSA through the New Car Assessment Program. In order to receive an Overall score of five stars with the NHTSA, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross needed to get five stars in nearly each crash test category. Passenger safety in frontal crash tests scored at five stars. Both side crash tests, involving driver and passenger, earned five-star ratings, while only the driver in the front test and the rollover test earned four stars.

 

Safety Technology

These days, it’s not just enough for a vehicle to hold up and protect passengers in a collision. Safety ratings also takes into account the vehicle’s ability to help you avoid a collision. The NHTSA recommends available safety systems on the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and an automatic braking feature that comes with the Forward Collision Mitigation System. Best of all, the Eclipse Cross offers more safety features for the 2020 model year than the previous model year.

2020 Mitsubishi Mirage GT | Charlotte, NC

Mitsubishi’s subcompact crossover, the Mirage, has recently earned the 2020 ALG Pre-Owned award for receiving the lowest forecasted depreciation of any subcompact vehicle. ALG looks at 27 different aspects of cars aged two to five years old, which includes viewing a vehicle’s cross-shop information, transaction price, and vehicle size.

The ALG Pre-Owned Value awards are considered the go-to reference point for evaluating the depreciation of vehicles. The awards are only given to cars and trucks that have the lowest anticipated depreciation values between the ages of two and five years old — from the years 2019 to 2022.

Based on its EPA-estimated 43 mpg on the highway,* the Mitsubishi Mirage is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered engine in the United States. With an affordable starting price tag of just $13,795, and backed by Mitsubishi’s extraordinary fully transferrable five-year/60,000 mile limited warranty, a five-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance, a seven-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty, Mirage owners are most certainly getting some bang for their buck.

The 2020 Mirage promises to offer many of the same features as its predecessor, but it includes automatic climate control feature across all trims.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Named 2020 Family Green Car of the Year™

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV | Charlotte, NC

In 2019, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV won the Green Car Journal’s award for the Green SUV of the Year. For 2020, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the finalists for the Family Green Car of the Year™ award.

The Family Green Car of the Year™ award is bestowed upon a versatile, family-friendly vehicle that boasts eco-friendly attributes. This prestigious award aims to highlight new, environmentally conscious vehicles that feature low emissions and electrified technology.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV itself combines a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine with twin electric motors, offering a 22-mile all-electric driving range and a whopping combined EPA estimated 74 mpg-e.* This mean the plug-in hybrid offers you the option of a clean commute.

The 2020 Outlander PHEV only uses gasoline when required. When you need a little more power, like driving up a hill, or cruising down the highway, an integrated clutch in the front axle switches to one of the hybrid modes— EV mode, Series Hybrid Mode, and Parallel Hybrid Mode. Each mode uses a different variation of the MIVEC and twin batteries, offering drivers peak performance in all conditions.

Like all of Mitsubishi’s rides, the Outlander PHEV is backed by a 10-year/10,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you’d like to check out the Outlander PHEV, you can take it for a spin at Larry Jay Mitsubishi.

Rumors About the Upcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander | Larry Jay Mitsubishi | Charlotte, NC

Pictured: 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander

Recent spy photos have surfaced of a camouflaged 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander prototype, and that inspired some rumors and guesses about what the future model will possess.

Although the SUV’s exterior was camouflaged, it is thought that the 2021 Outlander could be reminiscent of the Engelberg Tourer concept car, with features like the unique grille surround along with a similar headlight and taillight shape.

In comparison to the 2019 Outlander, the 2021 model looks like it could be larger — meaning that it could be moved up to the mid-size-SUV segment, considering the 2019 model is already considered a large compact SUV. A larger exterior would lead to the 2021 Outlander having a more spacious interior. If this shift occurred, it would make the Eclipse Cross the smallest SUV in the Mitsubishi lineup.

So far, Mitsubishi hasn’t announced what powertrain options will be available and standard for the 2021 Outlander. However, it is rumored that one of the engine options could be a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four engine for the base model. Other options that could be available include a V6 engine, as well as a plug-in-hybrid powertrain that’s currently offered on the 2019 Outlander.

If you’d like to check out a current model-year Outlander, you can take one for a test drive at Larry Jay Mitsubishi in Charlotte.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Rear Cross-Traffic Alert | Charlotte, NC

As the ideal eco-friendly family vehicle, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comes with extensive space, technologies, and safety features. In particular, the Outlander PHEV safety features received a Five-Star Overall Safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

According to Mitsubishi, the Outlander PHEV has multiple available active safety features, such as Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beams, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Perhaps best of all, for the 2020 model year, the PHEV will have these safety technologies on every trim level — which is another reason the NHTSA gave the Outlander PHEV such a high safety rating.

“Our highest priority is keeping our customers safe on the road, and our design and engineering efforts have been validated through NHTSA’s rigorous evaluation process,” said Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi North America. “Now for 2020, we can proudly say that Outlander PHEV continues to offer our customers the highest levels of safety, quality and capability in one unique package.”

In addition to its stellar safety features, the PHEV has the Mitsubishi-backed 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is great for drivers who want added peace of mind. Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or you simply want a safe, family vehicle, the Outlander PHEV is the ideal SUV.

Mitsubishi Recognized for Its Empowerment of Women Workers

Workplace diversity can be one of the most valuable strengths that a company possesses. Different perspectives can result in new ideas and strong strategies. That’s why Mitsubishi is so committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce.

These efforts were recently recognized, as Mitsubishi earned a position as an MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index constituent.

The MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index, or WIN for short, examines efforts by several Japanese companies to make the workplace a more welcoming and healthy environment for women. Mitsubishi has now been recognized by the organization for two years in a row, demonstrating the automaker’s commitment to making the workplace a better environment for women workers.

Roughly five years ago in July of 2014, Mitsubishi launched the Diversity Promotion Policy. This policy not only worked to make the workplace an improved environment for women but other groups of diverse workers as well. Mitsubishi followed the Act on the Promotion of Female Participation and Career Advancement in the Workplace for its women workforce in particular. This helped facilitate more time off for new and expecting mothers, as well as on-site facilities geared toward the female workers at Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi plans to introduce new diversity efforts in the next upcoming years, and we here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi are certainly proud of these initiatives.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV | Larry Jay Mitsubishi | Charlotte, NC

It’s not every day an electrified vehicle gets to call itself the best plug-in hybrid, but the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recently took that title for itself. The New England Motor Press Association announced the winner of the “Best in Class Green Vehicle Hybrid or PHEV” at the Winter Vehicle Awards.
