2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder At A Glance

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder is the “attainable exotic” that combines exciting design and performance with a high-tech convertible top and excellent value.

For 2010, Mitsubishi continues the excitement with enhancements to the GS model. Aggressive styling gives the GS a similar style to the GT, but with fuel efficiency in mind without sacrificing performance. The GS model gets three significant upgrades for 2010: a dual exhaust system yields a more powerful sound, two-tone front and rear bumper fascias, and Active Stability Control (ASC) standard. In addition to one new exterior color, both models will come standard with a rearview camera system.

Eclipse is offered as the 4-cylinder GS and the V-6 GT. The Spyder GS model has a 162-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed automatic, and the GT model has a 265 hp 3.8-liter V-6 which produces 262 lb.-ft. of peak torque with a 5-speed automatic. In both engines, Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) helps to optimize efficiency and power across a broad engine speed range. Both automatic transmissions feature Sportronic™ shifters to allow manual gearshift control.

A rigid platform and 4-wheel independent suspension give the Spyder sporty road manners and a compliant ride. All models are now equipped with Active Stability Control (ASC) standard, four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD); the GT features larger, ventilated rear discs and standard 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Spyder’s automatic cloth top folds out of sight under a flush-fitting powered tonneau cover in about 19 seconds. Multi-layer top construction provides a full headliner for the quiet, snug interior feeling of a coupe when it is raised. The glass rear window has a defroster.

The wave-form instrument panel houses easy-to-reach controls and features distinctive motorcycle-inspired gauges and ice blue LED nighttime illumination. The high-back front bucket seats feature integrated, open head restraints for a sporty look and enhanced rear visibility. The steering wheel features audio system remote controls.

For 2010, all Spyder models feature Bluetooth® HFP system with voice recognition for hands-free calling and auxiliary input jacks for an iPod/MP3 connection. A standard 650-watt (max.) Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system with AM/FM/CD/MP3 playback capability, including a 6-disc, in-dash CD changer and SIRIUS® Satellite Radio with a 3-month pre-paid service subscription. The system is specifically engineered for the Spyder and provides automatic sound equalization for top-up or top-down driving. An 8-in. subwoofer integrated into the rear seat area provides deep bass sound as well as a unique design element.
