That was then, of course. Today, we know what an eclipse is, and while it may have been a while since we wanted to drive one, Mitsubishi hopes that this recent rendition foretells a change in the number people walking into its dealerships and driving off in its cars.
We'll see. If not, if the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse does not turn heads and get on short lists, this Eclipse may well indeed cast a dark, dark shadow over Mitsubishi Motors of North America. As it is, however, this new and aggressive car that goes back to the past for its styling is a solid maybe: maybe more people will like it enough to pay for it.
