Inspired by the brand's 1998 SST concept sports car, the new Eclipse's appearance is best defined by a longer, more sophisticated stance and ribbing on the side door panels. A four-cylinder engine choice returns for the 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse accompanied by a new 3.0-liter V-6 powerplant. Along with receiving an exterior and interior make-over, the Mitsubishi Montero Sport rides on a new rear suspension for 2000. Another significant change to the Montero Sport for 2000 is the discontinuation of the four-cylinder engine in the base-trimmed ES. The base DE version of the Mitsubishi Mirage has been upgraded with a host of value-added standard features such as air conditioning, power windows and a CD audio system. On the 2000 Mitsubishi Galant LS and GTZ models, traction control is standard. Rear passenger safety is heightened for all Galant sedans in 2000 through the use of three-point seat belts. The Mitsubishi Diamante premium sedan returns to the utilization of ES and LS trim levels for 2000.
