At the front, the blacked-out upper and lower grille sections that are bisected by an equally dark-colored front bumper insert look tall and imposing and give the 2011 Eclipse GS Sport an aggressive, somewhat similar front fascia design to the signature smile of the company's ultra-high-performance Lancer Evolution sports sedan.

Included items are a melodious 140-watt AM/FM/CD player with MP3 compatibility, 6 speakers and auxiliary audio input jacks; automatic headlamp shut off; anti-theft alarm system; cruise control; ice-blue LED illumination of the controls and instrumentation; air conditioning; remote keyless entry; tilt steering column with sport-wrapped leather steering wheel and power windows, side mirrors and door locks.

Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Sport

The Eclipse GS Sport is the model with the most equipment/best price points of all Eclipse grades. It adds a lot of additional standard equipment on top of the base model including high-intensity discharge (HID) projector-type headlamps; electrochromic rearview mirror with backup camera system; power sliding glass sunroof with sun shade; Bluetooth hands-free phone system and an extremely powerful yet crisp-sounding 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system with MP3 compatibility, 9 speakers (including a 10-in. subwoofer) and a pre-paid 3-month subscription to SIRIUS satellite radio, along with the aforementioned expanded no-cost luxury amenities for the 2011 model year (leather seating surfaces; heated front seats and side view mirrors; power driver's seat; strut tower bar; clear lip spoiler and aluminum entrance sill and pedals).

Eclipse Powertrain

Befitting the 2011 Eclipse GS Sport's snazzy styling and sporty handling is a capable 2.4-liter engine.

The 2.4-liter SOHC 16-valve normally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine makes use of Mitsubishi Intelligent Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) for maximum power production, fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions. Utilizing a cast-iron engine block and an aluminum cylinder head, this engine creates 162 hp at 6,000 rpm and 162 lb-ft of torque at an even 4,000 rpm; redline occurs at 6,500 rpm. The Eclipse GS Sport is equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Eager and smooth-revving, this 2.4-liter four-cylinder powerplant gets the job done in fun and efficient fashion with a highway fuel economy rating of 28 mpg.

Sophisticated Safety Technologies

The entire Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe model lineup includes a wide array of sophisticated safety technologies to better protect driver and passengers that are included at no additional cost. These systems include an advanced supplemental restraint system (SRS) that consists of dual front air bags that feature dual action inflators with crash zone and seat position and occupant sensors; side air bags; curtain air bags; Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL) and anti-lock brakes (ABS) plus Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).
