The view on the screen is limited and objects outside that view will not be seen. Once we did, we found it easy to use, with the coupe-like center console giving a sporty vibe, and piano black and luminous silver accents looking modern and upscale. The cargo floor is raised by 4 inches above the floor, which creates an odd reef with the seatbacks pushed forward. Taxes, title license and doc fee extra, rebates and incentives applied, must qualify for financing. Four wheel drive allows you to go places you've only imagined. Among compact crossovers, the Eclipse Cross rates mid-pack. In our case, averaging around 26 mpg.
Its name draws on a hit from decades ago, but the new version strikes its own chord among crossovers. The split-view rear end is similarly busy and distracting. The engine breathes better thanks to a turbocharger, improving both performance and economy. The warranty and low price may appeal to some crossover shoppers, but we struggle to see the value of the Eclipse Cross among similarly priced competitors. All pricing includes all applicable rebates in lieu of special financing, sale price valid on in stock vehicles only.
It delivers style and power in a single package! First impression of the new Eclipse Cross is a sporty and fresh take on the crossover. Sure, the rear seats are spacious, even for adults. Sure it may never get your heart pumping, but it will get your heart from point A to point B very efficiently, and very safely. See your Mitsubishi retailer for details. Our team is professional, and we offer a no-pressure environment.
We were also impressed with the ride quality and overall quiet cabin. The prices shown above, may vary from region to region, as will incentives, and are subject to change. Angus MacKenzie thought the touchpad looked glued on, and Frank Markus and Mark Rechtin declared Mitsubishi's latest graphical user interface one of the industry's worst. A dual-pane sunroof offers to bring more light into the cabin, but eats deeply into available head space. The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is relatively frugal with fuel, but it could be better. No lumbar adjustment, be we never missed it. Both have turbo 4-cylinder engines, all-wheel-drive, a premium sound system, and, surprisingly, a tail light the stretches across the entire rear hatch.
Under the hood you'll find a 4 cylinder engine with more than 150 horsepower, and for added security, dynamic Stability Control supplements the drivetrain. Adding to the comfort and confidence is an array of state of the art safety, including Blind Spot Warning, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control System, Multi-View Camera and Automatic High Beam. On our tester, heated too. Touchpad controller does not operate with Android Auto. When I drove it there was a light spritz of rain so I kept it in Auto; which seemed to know what it was doing. It also makes the Eclipse fun to toss around, and treat it like the sporty crossover it intends to be.
And leaning on a turbo eats up gas. Buyers may be drawn toward the daring looks of the 2019 Eclipse Cross and its low price, but both ask for sacrifices. Most versions are saddled with all-wheel-drive running gear that adds traction, but also weight. However other than those vague options, the two Eclipses share very little in common. The front seats are accommodating but not heavily bolstered. Call or email for complete vehicle specific information.
Beyond ergonomic gripes, the system lacks intuition and clarity for first-time users. It gives everything you need, but still stands apart from the pack. This is a good thing. Its racy roofline is commendable but its interior and parts of the exterior are forgettable. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility helps the latter, but not the former. All of that changed recently with the purchase of Mitsu by Nissan. The package also brings added niceties like a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, auto dimming rearview mirror and roof rails.
The 2019 Eclipse Cross earns a 4. If hauling stuff is more important than passengers to you, give it a little extra scrutiny. We even found the touchpad controller easy to use — something Lexus continues to struggle with. Everything inside and out seems to be designed for people who like their technology and like it to work well. The interior is small for its class, and there are some cost-cutting materials in easily seen places. A modern sport coupe to take on the world? So the bar is set pretty high, Mitsubishi. Another giant killer, and also no more.

Every feature you could ever think of except keyfob remote start. Vehicle information is based off standard equipment and may vary from vehicle to vehicle. With a name like Eclipse, there will be expectations of hot performance. And for a vehicle likely marketed to millennials, its infotainment system is awful. This is an easy cruiser for the daily commutes, or long weekend ski trips. Thanks to Tom Borchard at i for letting me drive the Eclipse Cross! Not only grippy in the slippery stuff, the system also enhances straight-line stability and cornering. With the rear seats folded forward that space expands to roughly 48 cubic feet.
