Dare to Compare – 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. Small SUVs
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross occupies a slot right between the subcompact and compact crossover segments, so it’s difficult to identify a direct competitor. However, three crossovers — the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, the 2018 Toyota C-HR, and the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport — do come close. How does the Eclipse Cross match up against them?
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross delivers more power than its three nearest competitors, putting out 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Only the Subaru Crosstrek matches the Eclipse Cross in horsepower, and the Crosstrek, Toyota C-HR, and Nissan Rogue Sport don’t come close to matching the torque of the Eclipse Cross.
For better visibility behind the wheel, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross provides 67.1 inches of height. None of its three competitors can match that. The Subaru Crosstrek comes closest at 63.6 inches. The Nissan Rogue Sport provides 63.4 inches, while the Toyota C-HR offers 61.6 inches.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross provides the most cargo space with the seats up at 22.6 cubic feet, an especially useful trait when the rear seats are occupied by passengers. The Subaru Crosstrek offers 20.8 cubic feet; the Nissan Rogue Sport provides 19.9 cubic feet; and the Toyota C-HR comes in at 19 cubic feet.
Compared to three of its closest rivals, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross provides a more powerful engine, better body height, and superior cargo space with the rear seats up.
