Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross slots between the Outlander Sport and Outlander SUVs, and is distinguished by its coupelike styling. This newcomer is underwhelming, with mundane handling, an unsettled ride, and extremely frustrating controls. Its power comes from a lackluster 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. The Eclipse Cross moves decently around town, but it runs out of steam climbing hills or merging onto highways. Its fuel economy of 24 mpg overall isn't impressive for the class, either. A center console touchpad interacts with the infotainment screen, but this controller is very cumbersome and distracting to use. The driver's seat is short on support, but getting in or out is easy, and the rear-seat room is generous. The curvy styling hurts the driver's view out. AWD is standard on all but the base version.
