2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Style, power, and weight mark the latest version of the fourth-generation Eclipse. The styling change that appeared in 2006 turned the Eclipse into a design-award-winning, sleek hatchback coupe. Three new colors are available in 2008.

The coupe comes standard with an underpowered 162-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline four. The optional 3.8-liter, 263-hp V6 adds wheel-spinning, torque-steering power to the front-wheel-drive Eclipse and provides plenty of low-end punch. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or a five-speed Sportronic that permits manual shifting.

Weighing in at nearly 3,500 pounds, however, puts the damper on any sports-car agility for this very sporty looking coupe. Further discouraging sports-car athleticism, the Eclipse sits on the same platform as the Galant sedan and the Endeavor SUV. Reviewers fault its SUV-like turning radius, yet they find it provides a reasonable amount of fun in the twisties.

Set up by Mitsubishi for a comfortable ride, the Eclipse provides a satisfactory long-distance touring experience. The front seats are comfortable, but the back seats remain cramped. Overall, the interior features good quality materials and a great optional stereo system. The Eclipse features a six-airbag safety system.

On the GS trim, standard equipment includes all the amenities and a number of performance additions like the V6, bigger vented disc brakes, 18-inch alloys, and traction control. Sunroof and stereo packages are some of the options.

For those looking for a stylish, sporty-looking coupe that provides comfortable long-distance cruising, the Eclipse warrants consideration.
