The hot Eclipse coupe is now joined by the stylish Spyder, which is destined to be a popular addition to the model range. Trim levels include the GS, with a 162-bhp 2.4L I-4 or the faster GT with its 260-bhp 3.8L V-6. The convertible power top is fully lined for reduced noise and improved insulation. A glass rear window has a built-in defroster for better rear visibility. Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic (GS). The GT offers a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic.
A convertible version of the new Eclipse joins the lineup dubbed the Spyder. The convertible features a power-operated soft top that retracts in 19 seconds. The Spyder offers the same 162-bhp 2.4L I-4 260-bhp 3.8L V-6 powertrains found in the coupe. Like the coupe, the Spyder is FWD only.
