Santa tries out new transport to tackle Donegal’s frosty roads
Ahead of their big Christmas rush, Santa has decided to give Rudolph some rest – and has turned to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, from DMG Motors in Donegal Town, to get around!
It seems that Santa is using the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as he prepares to visit the boys and girls around the world this Christmas.
The all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be available to Irish customers from €27,900 and goes on sale in January 2018.
The big man in red has already given the Eclipse Cross the thumbs up after a test-drive in the Donegal snow this week as our exclusive video above shows.
Developed with a focus on three core areas – inspiring design, driving dynamics and advanced technology – Mitsubishi’s new mid-sized SUV will be available in three trim levels – Eclipse Cross Invite, Eclipse Cross Intense and Eclipse Cross Instyle.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 1.5L Turbo Petrol 163PS AS&G 2WD Invite is available with manual transmission and starts from €27,900. The level of specification on this entry model is exceptional, including Smartphone Link Audio Display supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Touchpad Controller, Reversing Camera, Bluetooth and USB connectivity and rear seat passengers benefit from Sliding rear seats (200mm) with an 8 step recline.
