She Shopped’s Zoe Kelly and automotive expert Ben Finnis recently took a shiny, candy red, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for a spin, thanks to Portside Mitsubishi.

We know that red goes faster, but what else can this top of the range all-wheel drive do? Check out the video to see what the pair thought.

First impressions last, and Zoe is impressed! She loves the heated seats in the Eclipse Cross Exceed.

There are three models of the Eclipse, the LS, the Exceed two-wheel drive and the Exceed all-wheel drive, and Ben loves the luxury of the vehicle, as well as the safety features.

“For the five-star safety features you get in this vehicle, with other manufacturers, you’d be paying 10 or 15 thousand dollars more,” Ben says.

One of the safety features includes a seven-inch screen with near assist, which will show an aerial view of what’s around you to help you park. Amazing!

The Eclipse Cross boasts the maximum ANCAP safety rating and a range safety goodies including: Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Anti-Lock Braking System, and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Rain Sensing Wipers, Dusk Sensing Headlamps, Auto High Beam, Reverse Camera and Sensors, Ultrasonic Misacceleration, Mitigation System, and Hill Start Assist.

A good-looking vehicle, the Eclipse Cross makes a bold statement. With its muscular profile, dynamic alloy wheels and auto LED lighting, this all wheel drive is a sophisticated balance of sport and style that reflects its individuality.

And Ben who has had 30 years’ experience as a motor expert is particular impressed with the value for money in the top of the range Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Zoe also can’t believe the price point for the Eclipse, with so many features; you really get bang for your buck.

With simple to use technology, the Eclipse features a touchpad that allows you to control your audio and media, and all your music, apps, phone, and messages are all in one spot from the intuitive Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA), which is very cool.

Sleek, stylish and roomy, there is plenty of boot space and the back seats can move forwards and fold down to create even more space. Great for small families, and people on the go.

Mitsubishi offer a five-year warranty which gives peace of mind when you drive the car off the Portside Mitsubishi lot, and with recommended retail at only $31,990, the Eclipse is the way to go.

Family owned Portside Mitsubishi have been in business for more than 30 years and they know their stuff, so get in touch and book in an Eclipse test drive today.
