2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse.

It's been said that the Eclipse's voluptuous haunches, aggressively styled front end, and trick interior combine to create the best update to Mitsu's Eclipse in many years. And I agree--you can take the nightclub with you in this chic, metro-inspired sportster. The Sun and Sound audio package includes a power sunroof and a kicking 650-watt Rockford Fosgate stereo. An ice-blue LED center console helps to make your night experience even better. Whether in a quick-shifting five-speed overdrive manual transmission (six-speed with the GT) or the Sportronic automatic, this Eclipse will rip the curve right out of the road. The GS comes with a 2.4-liter, single-overheadcam, four-cylinder engine, while the GT comes with a 263-horsepower, 3.8-1iter V-6; the Eclipse SE adds Premium Sport and Accessory packages. Gas mileage is good for this level of sportiness. The ride is firm but not hard. Safety features include front and side air bags as well as antilock fourwheel disc brakes. For drivers whose club nights have evolved to afternoon play dates, the rear seats have upper and lower restraint anchors for young children.
