2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder Overview
Driving with the top down is taken to a whole new level in the performance- and style-oriented 2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder convertible.
Available in two trims, GS Sport and GT, the 2011 Eclipse Spyder is very much like its hardtop brother, the Eclipse. When it comes to performance, the GS Sport features a 162-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder MIVEC engine that outputs 162 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. For instant acceleration, the GT features a 265-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6, which delivers 262 pounds-feet of torque and is paired to a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic. The Eclipse Spyder receives an EPA-estimated 16-20 mpg in the city and 24-27 mpg on the highway and competes with the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro in the convertible sports car segment.
The reason you’re interested in the 2011 Eclipse Spyder is that it can convert from a hard-shelled tonneau coupe to an opened-top ride in just 19 power-folding seconds. Fog lights, two-tone bumpers, integrated rear spoiler, and a lowered sport-tuned suspension come standard, while high-intensity discharge projector-type headlamps, clear chrome LED tail lights, dual exhausts outlets with polished tips, and an alloy fuel door are optional.
On the inside of the 2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder you’ll find that both trims feature many goodies to keep you occupied and entertained. A 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate® six-CD player nine-speaker audio system, auxiliary input jack, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, heated front seats, leather seating surfaces, six-way power driver’s seat, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, aluminum pedals, and remote keyless entry are all standard.
When it comes to safety, the 2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder offers a comprehensive set of features. Active Stability Control, antilock brakes, driver’s and front passenger’s airbags with passenger side occupant sensing system, front seat-mounted head/thorax airbags, front and rear crumple zones, and a tire pressure monitoring system all come standard. A rear view backup camera is optional.
