Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Vs. the Competition

 

The All New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Takes on the Rest

When it comes to compact crossover SUVs, there are a lot of options out on the market. There are so many that they seem to blend together. Well, Mitsubishi's latest model is breaking away from the everyday compact crossover. The all new award-winning Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is making waves from Danvers to Boston and everywhere in between, boasting bold styling and the latest tech and features from Mitsubishi. Take a look at how it stacks up against the regular old lineup of compact crossovers available:

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Ford Escape

  • Pricing - The top-level Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes in at several thousands of dollars less than the Ford Escape when comparably equipped. Think of all the things you can do with an extra $5,000.
  • Engine - Turbocharged engines offer more power and higher efficiency than traditional motors. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes standard with a turbo engine with 184 pound-feet of torque. The Ford Escape comes standard with a regular engine with 170 pound-feet of torque.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Hyundai Tucson

  • Efficiency - You'll save money at the pump with a Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The standard Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gets 26 MPG city vs the Hyundai Tucson SE's 23 MPG city, and the top trim Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross earns 25 MPG city. The top-level Hyundai Tucson Limited gets close with 24 MPG city.
  • Performance - Every Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross features a 184 pound-feet of torque turbo engine, and steering wheel mounted transmission controls are available for custom sport driving. The Hyundai Tucson's standard engine has 151 pound-feet of torque, and steering wheel transmission controls are not available.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Kia Sportage

  • Value - Love saving money? The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SEL S-AWC's MSRP is many thousands of dollars less than the Kia Sportage SX AWD's MSRP.
  • Powertrain - The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with an efficient turbocharged engine, regardless of which trim you choose. The Kia Sportage? You must pay extra for a higher trim-level to get a turbo. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SEL S-AWC is more efficient than the Kia Sportage SX AWD too, with 25 MPG city versus the Kia's 20 MPG city. That's a lot less gas money spent on a Malden or Lynn commute.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Nissan Rogue Sport

  • Power - Every Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with a 152-horsepower turbocharged engine with 184 pound-feet of torque. Every Nissan Rogue Sport gets a standard engine with 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque--and lower fuel efficiency too.
  • Warranty - When you invest in a new vehicle, you want to make sure it's with you for the long haul. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile whole vehicle warranty, a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 7-year anti-corrosion warranty, and 5-year/Unlimited-mile roadside assistance coverage. You're protected from any flat tires, defective parts, and that Peabody salt air. The Nissan Rogue Sport? 3-year/36,000-mile vehicle warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, 5-year anti-corrosion warranty, and 3-year/36,000-mile roadside assistance.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Toyota CH-R

  • Utility - Want to hit the road with the family or pick up some cargo? The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Toyota CH-R are both classed as sport utility vehicles, but the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has more passenger volume, more cargo volume, higher cargo capacity, higher gross vehicle weight rating, more headroom, and more legroom.
  • Engine and Transmission - Want power and performance?

The Toyota CH-R comes with a regular engine and transmission, reaching only 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque.
