The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross was named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK winner when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights*. The Eclipse Cross continues to be recognized for excellence including being named the 2019 Car of the Year by the prestigious RJC – Automotive Researchers & Journalists Conference of Japan, the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) top five-star rating for collision safety performance in 2018 and the five-star Euro NCAP Safety Rating.

The Eclipse Cross is the second Mitsubishi vehicle to have earned a 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award, along with the 7-passenger Mitsubishi Outlander*. The IIHS is an independent, non-profit organization that researches, performs evaluations and assesses safety ratings in crash testing of production vehicles.

To qualify for 2019 Top Safety Pick status, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. Vehicles must also earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating.

The Eclipse Cross received good ratings in all six crash tests. The optional front crash prevention system avoided collisions at 12 and 25 mph (19 to 40 km), earning a superior rating in IIHS evaluations.

The Eclipse Cross earned IIHS top honors in its GT price line (SEL in the United States), which features LED headlights, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). The GT price line also offers additional safety equipment including Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Automatic High Beams, and luxury touches such as a dual-pane power panoramic sunroof and a 710 watt Rockford Fosgate® premium audio system with nine speakers.

Each Eclipse Cross is also backed by Mitsubishi's 10-year/160,000 km Powertrain Limited Warranty, a 5-year/100,000 km fully transferable New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and up to a 5-year/100,000 km accessory warranty along with a 5-year/Unlimited Miles Roadside Assistance.**
