Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. Subaru Crosstrek





 

It’s a rivalry as old as time itself, or so it seems, the ongoing contest between Mitsubishi and Subaru

With the new Eclipse Cross, we’re crossing all the boxes and going toe-to-toe with the Crosstrek for the crown. See why the Eclipse Cross is winning awards and the affections of the masses, and why you should get into an Eclipse Cross of your very own.



What’s the Scoop on the Eclipse Cross?


We have a full review located here, but the Eclipse Cross is the SUV to end all SUVs, and the latest by Mitsubishi. The vehicle comes loaded with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. No matter what your phone situation, we’re able to get you connected and chatting via onboard Bluetooth and media capabilities.

In terms of style, we kept it bold. The Eclipse Cross dares forward with sharp lines and sleek interior styling. We keep the tech upfront with tons of options like Rockford Fosgate sound, panoramic sunroofs, 7” smart displays, and tons of extras.

You’ll feel extra safe knowing that our standard safety features are even more than that of the competition. The 2018 Eclipse Cross has blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, lane departure warning (in case you’re getting tired!), red cross traffic alerts, forward collision mitigation, and more.

Other important notables include the height and simple onboard conveniences of the Eclipse Cross. The height of the Cross (67.1 inches) towers over the Subaru (63.6 inches), which makes a huge difference for visibility during both driving and parking in tight spaces. You’ll feel more in control with the Cross, easily. Onboard conveniences in tech and comfort make the Cross an easy choice. Better yet, you can stand out from the crowd with the exclusive Diamond Edition — we all know that nobody does special editions like Mitsubishi.
