Difference Between Eclipse GST and GSX

Eclipse GST vs GSX

The Eclipse GST, which stands for Grand Sport Turbo, and GSX, which stands for Grand Sport X, models are two very popular models despite being quite old. These two Eclipse models share a lot in terms of styling and even in their engines. The main difference between the Eclipse GST and the Eclipse GSX is the transmission layout. The Eclipse GST is a front-wheel drive vehicle, which means that only the wheels in the front of the vehicle can propel the vehicle. In contrast, the GSX is an all-wheel drive vehicle. The power of the engine of the GSX can be directed to all four of its wheels.

An AWD drive vehicle like the GSX certainly has a number of advantages over a FWD vehicle like the GST. One advantage is the ability to put more power to the ground with a reduced risk of the wheels slipping so you can accelerate more without going into a burnout. Another advantage is greater control under adverse conditions like wet roads, steep inclines, or other cases where one or more wheels experience reduced traction.

The GSX with its AWD layout is not without its disadvantages. The first disadvantage is the added weight of the components necessary to power all the wheels. Although it varies from one model to another, the added weight is typically a few hundred pounds. The added weight negatively impacts the fuel efficiency of the vehicle with all other things constant. The second disadvantage is the increase in complexity of the transmission and the added moving parts. Of course, with more moving parts, there is the increased probability that a part will fail. There is also an increased maintenance cost as each part will wear out over time and need to be replaced.

On the outside, the notable difference between the GST and the GSX is the slightly bigger rims used by the latter; the GSX uses 17-inch rims compared to the 16-inch rims on the GST.

The matter of choosing between a GST and a GSX all boils down to whether you want a FWD or an AWD vehicle.


1.The GST is a FWD vehicle while the GSX is an AWD vehicle.
2.The GST is lighter than the GSX.
3.The GST has fewer mechanical parts than the GSX.
4.The GST uses 16-inch rims while the GSX uses 17-inch rims.
