Mitsubishi Coupe Reviews

Mitsubishi has been manufacturing cars in Japan since 1917 and the American arm of its operations was founded in 1981. Mitsubishi remains one of the largest auto-makers in the world and throughout this time the company has offeredfun, affordable quality cars with strong performance and durability. Today's range includes thesedan, coupe, convertible, crossover SUV models and they are now looking to develop hybrid and battery powered electric cars in the near future. The Lancer remains the most well-known model of car produced by Mitsubishi in the affordable small car range but the Eclipse offers an exoticdesignedMitsubishi coupefor a more sporty option while also retaining an affordable price.

Although the Eclipse Mitsubishi coupe does not necessarily provide as much power or handle as well as its competitors it does allow the average car buyer to obtain a sporty looking vehicle without spending a small fortune. The Eclipse suspension is more suited to the daily commute, so while this may not appeal to all car enthusiasts it does provide a comfortable ride. The Eclipse has many optional extras and the higher priced models include many additional standard features such as Sportronic automatic transmission, leather seats and a powered sunroof. The Eclipse also includes an excellent value 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Key competitors to the Mitsubishi coupe include the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Mazda Miata, Mini Coupe and the Nissan 370Z.

TheMitsubishi coupeis available in 4 Eclipse variants the GS, GS Sport, SE ad GT (the latter being the highest performance version). The Eclipse GS starts at $19,499 featuring a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine with 162 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 162 foot pound of torque at 4,000 rpm. Fuel economy is 28 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city with a 17.7 gallon fuel tank.The Eclipse GSSport starts at $24,928 featuring leather seats, Sportronic automatic transmission, powered sunroof and a 650-Watt Rockford Fosgate premium audio system with the same 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engineand fuel economy as the standard GS.

The third Mitsubishi coupe the Eclipse SE has the same 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine with 162 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 162 foot pound of torque at 4,000 rpm as the Eclipse GS Sport without the same audio system but does have the addition of dark finish 18" alloy wheels, black side mirrors and exterior side decals for the same starting price of $24,928.Fuel economy remains at 28 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city.

The final Mitsubishi coupe is the Eclipse GT which starts at $29,408 and includes the features of the GS Sport but with a 5 speed Sportronic automatic transmission and a significantly more powerful 3.8 liter 6 cylinder engine providing 265 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 262 foot pound of torque at 4,500 rpm. Fuel economy is of course slightly compromised over other Eclipse variants with this additional power providing 25mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in the city with the same 17.7 gallon fuel tank.
