For 2008, the Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe and Eclipse Spyder convertible are carried over with only a few minor changes. The 3.8L V6 engine is now available with the SE trim, whereas it was only offered with the GT for 2007. Larger 18-inch wheels are standard on the top-of-the-range GT model, and the availability of electronic stability control has been expanded; it's now standard on both GT and SE-V6 models. A GT Premium Package is available on GT models and includes the SE's Sword Silver 18-inch wheels and aluminum scuff plates. SE models have also been revamped to include an aerodynamic body package and other cosmetic enhancements, and Sirius satellite radio capability with a six-month subscription has been added to the available Rockford-Fosgate Premium Audio system. Three new colors are offered on the Spyder: Optimist Green, Rave Red, and Northstar White.
Practical yet sporty; open-air Spyder soft-top model; wide range of features.
Mitsubishi's 2008 Eclipse coupe and Spyder convertible offer sporty performance with a front-wheel-drive layout that makes it more practical for year-round driving than rear-wheel-drive roadsters. In the back, the Eclipse's front-wheel-drive layout also allows a roomier interior in general than competing rear-wheel-drive convertibles, and the coupe's fold-forward seats allow good cargo versatility.
