Los Angeles 2017: MITSUBISHI CONNECT Announced, to Debut in New Eclipse Cross SUV

Mitsubishi now fully on the connectivity bandwagon By ,

Mitsubishi used the occasion of the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show this week to host the global launch of its connected car platform.

It’s called MITSUBISHI CONNECT Safeguard and Remote Services, and North America will be the first market to get it. The Japanese company explains that it will aid drivers on and off the road through integrated systems like Automatic Collision Notification, SOS Emergency Assistance, Roadside Assistance, and remote features such as Remote Climate Control and Car Finder.

MITSUBISHI CONNECT will initially be offered in the all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which made its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and will go on sale here in March 2018 starting at $27,798. This compact SUV fuses sharp coupe looks and dynamic SUV mobility with signature Mitsubishi styling, technology and driving confidence backed by Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC). It should considerably improve the company’s fortunes in North America.

Additional models and markets will follow.

"With the rollout of our new connected technology service, Mitsubishi Motors is well positioned to continue its growth in North America through 2018 and beyond."
