Mitsubishi's new connected vehicle services program, labelled the Mitsubishi CONNECT, will make its global debut at the upcoming LA Auto Show with two features, namely Safeguard and Remote Services, in the 2018 Eclipse Cross compact SUV.
According to the Japanese automaker, both services can be accessed either inside the vehicle through the mobile app, or via the owners' portal.
Mitsubishi's lineup in the United States is limited to the Mirage, Outlander, and Outlander Sport. Help is coming in the form of the Eclipse Cross and Outlander PHEV but sedans have largely been neglected.
In a recent interview with Automotive News, Mitsubishi CEO Osamu Masuko suggested that could change in the future as he still sees room for a sedan. However, the executive noted the company's strength comes from "SUVs and 4x4s" so that's where they are going to spend their resources.
