The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross range has officially dipped below the $30K mark thanks to the release of new entry-level ES grade, which takes up position at the bottom of the Eclipse Cross family tree and a retail price of $29,990.

However as far as price drops go, it’s a modest one. The existing Eclipse cross range only launched locally at the start of this year, and the previous base-grade Eclipse Cross LS retailed for $30,500 – just $510 more than the new ES. That said, the LS – now the mid-grade variant – moves up in price by $1490 to sit at $31,990.

The Eclipse Cross Exceed and Exceed AWD, meanwhile, retain their $36,000 and $38,500 price points.

Key standard equipment for the Eclipse Cross ES includes autonomous emergency braking, seven airbags, automatic high beam headlights, LED daytime running lamps, a reversing camera, front fog lamps, 18-inch alloys, touchscreen infotainment and six speaker audio.

As with all other Eclipse Cross models, power comes from a 1.5-litre direct injected turbo inline four-cylinder petrol engine, with drive taken to the ground via a continuously-variable automatic transmission. Fuel economy is a claimed 7.3L/100km and the ES is strictly front-wheel drive; the top-grade Exceed is the only variant to be offered with all-wheel drive as an option.
