Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross may sound like that 1990s sports car, but it is in fact yet another crossover. It slots between Mitsubishi's two other crossovers - ASX and Outlander. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Unlike ASX and Outlander, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross does evoke reactions. Some people compare it a Pontiac Aztek (i.e. it’s ugly), others appreciate modern design, which is like a fresh breeze in an otherwise somewhat stale Mitsubishi model lineup. I wouldn’t go as far as to praise Eclipse Cross’ design, but I see what the designers wanted to achieve. Put it next to a Toyota C-HR, and you’ll see Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross could have been the cool one, but it was a couple of months late to the party, and prospective buyers got themselves Toyotas.

Starting price: 18990 EUR
As tested: 23 000 EUR

      At this moment by fact there isn't better by specks, 4x4 driving, and better looking SUV in this class and price range than Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It's also NCAP the safest SUV in the world for front passengers!

      Mitsubishi has more effective 4x4. And in our country Honda CR-V is often stolen car, so KASKO insurance is very expensive, and needs extra security installations... while Mitsubishi is fine with very minimal insurance and no requirements for additional security system etc,, So those are decisive factors, and Honda isn't an option at all.

      I tested the car with the very same specs in Germany two months ago. Watching this review I just waited Marek to give statement about the manual gearbox. It‘s a shame - this car just can‘t be driven normally in a city traffic, where changing gears is very much requested. It‘s a torture, so painfully jumpy on every up-shift. To blame is the absolutely devastating combination of this turbo petrol motor and the manual transmission. I‘m pretty sure, better to drive will be the CVT version. But anyway - this is another useless SUV.

      Such a poor offering especially at that price. Just no. Get a class above for the same price in the Honda CRV

      I think it's a pretty good car. Mitsubishi is always a bit underrated. But I only buy cars with automatic and I like CVTs - soorry Marek;) One question: did it snow, or was it foggy?

      I really like the design, Outlender looks great as well. too bad Japanese can never get the interiors and infotainment right... Maybe the new Corolla will be the first one that actually makes sense interior wise. It sure looks great

      I tried out this car. The manual gearbox was not as bad, the engine is pretty good. The boot is VERY small. The stick of the gearbox is higher, than you would prefer. In overall I liked teh car, but it was toooo pricy.
      On the other hand, the local Mitsu dealership offers 8 (!!!!) years of warranty. That is fucking awesome. (Ireland)
      In the end I got a used BMW X1 and I am happy with it.

      Amazing how so many feel the need to waste people's time with their USELESS opinion. They never drove one or own one but still the need to rip apart. Glad I live my VERY short life for myself and not for "others" validation. I love my 2019 Cross. Has more in it then cars costing LOTS more $$.

      Mitsubishi needs new management, their recent decision making has been very poor. It seems as though their Malaysian manufacturing plant are doing much better with design than their japanese counterpart. The president of mitsubishi motors needs to change for the company to get back on track.

      I like the front of the cross but the back needs some modifications.

      +misamisatv No they aren't, Nissan does own the controlling interest but that accounts for only 33%, and Nissan hasn't been doing much controlling of Mitsubishi operations since they're purchase of the company, they're holding out for a while.

      good review and good advice. Now that Nissan has a majority stake in Mitsubishi Motors I wonder what they will do with it. They're basically aiming at the same target audience.

      Ja też studiowałam japonistykę. Tak, mówi się raczej [suśi], a w Mitsubishi jest jeszcze u, które wymawia się też trochę inaczej, ale obawiam się, że wszyscy fani wymowy [ejsid drinkers] zasypaliby Marka komentarzami, gdyby starał się jeszcze o poprawną japońską wymowę. Która, skądinąd, poza Japonią nie jest w żaden sposób obecna w komunikacji marki.
