The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse offers a comprehensive package of features to fit the needs of almost all car enthusiasts—minus an auxiliary input for MP3 devices.

The Eclipse shines when it comes to cargo space, offering an enormous 15.7 cubic feet of storage, and according to Edmunds, this is even "before folding the backseats."

For 2010, a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface and rearview camera system are offered on the GS Sport and GT models; the GS Sport is the pick for those who want the fuel efficiency of the four-cylinder engine but are pulled in by the features on the V-6.

Shoppers usually want a strong, punchy sound system in a convertible, so those interested in the Spyder should seriously consider the powerful Rockford Fosgate sound system. Popular Mechanics reports that the optional "650-watt sound system [is] designed to compensate automatically for driving with the top up or down." And although late to the game, the Eclipse finally gets an auxiliary input jack for all models for 2010.

The base system isn’t so bad either, especially in the coupe. Cars.com reports that it "plays MP3 files on CD-ROM discs"—as opposed to DVDs. Other standard equipment on the base GS includes cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, and a 140-watt, six-speaker CD stereo.

Other top options include heated leather seats and automatic climate control.
There are just a few option packages available on the 2010 Eclipse, with few a la carte possibilities. Cars.com notes that the Premium Sport Package for the GT coupe offers such luxurious touches as "heated leather front seating surfaces, automatic climate control, heated mirrors, aluminum pedals," and Edmunds explains that the Sun and Sound option package includes "satellite radio, steering wheel audio controls, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, outside temperature display and compass."

Conclusion

The Mitsubishi Eclipse’s feature list is looking better for 2010, yet in this category it’s still no standout.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
