Eclipse Cross vs. C-HR






  

There are a couple of new players on the crossover utility vehicle (CUV) scene. Mitsubishi has brought the all-new 2018 Eclipse Cross to Canada while Toyota is offering a CUV-like vehicle called the Coupe Higher-Rider (C-HR); both are stylish, original designs aimed at providing a versatile crossover that’s fun to drive. The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross succeeds while the 2018 Toyota C-HR leaves a few things to be desired.


Here’s why the Eclipse Cross is a better crossover than the C-HR for Edmonton drivers:

 


All-Wheel Drive

 

Traction is a beautiful thing. Whether you’re driving around the snowy streets of Edmonton or heading down a bumpy dirt road on the way to the cottage, it’s comforting to know you have all-wheel drive and can take on some pretty ugly weather and driving conditions. The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes standard with Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) that provides the traction and control you need in those sticky situations. The Toyota C-HR doesn’t have an all-wheel drive option, which isn’t exactly ideal for life in Alberta.


“Kudos to the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), Mitsubishi’s integrated vehicle dynamics control system...” - Driving.ca

 


Ride Quality

 

The Eclipse Cross has been singled out for its sharp steering and nice ride quality. The turbocharged 1.5L CVT engine under the hood produces 161 hp and provides a smooth drive when cruising on the highway and the quick response time you want when negotiating city traffic. Producing 184 lb.-ft. of torque, the Eclipse provides smooth acceleration and there’s little if any noticeable turbo lag.


"The engine is quiet at a cruise and sends little to no vibration through the car’s controls, even when the stop start system is activated. Acceleration is smooth with none of the jerkiness that you’ll find from some dual-clutch automatics.” - WhatCar.com

 

The Toyota C-HR’s CVT engine, in contrast, is seen as loud and dated. It uses a now 10-year-old engine design that simply can’t compare to modern CTV engines.

 

“By 2011 standards, the C-HR’s drivetrain is fine for a CVT. But for 2018 it feels, and sounds, painfully archaic.” - Car and Driver

 


Important Tech

 

One big problem with the 2018 Toyota C-HR is that it can’t support Apple Carplay or Android Auto, instead offering Toyota’s own Entune infotainment system. All Eclipse models support both Android Apple and Apple Carplay, so all Eclipse drivers have the choice of how they want to stay connected.

 

“But without Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, the Toyota is something of a tough sell.” - Motor Trend

 


Warranty

 

Every new Eclipse comes with Mitsubishi’s renown 10-year / 160,000 km Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 5-year / 100,000 km New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Compared to Toyota’s 3-year / 60,000 km Basic Complete Warranty and 5-year/100,000 km Powertrain Warranty, there is a lot of extra value in the extra coverage you get on the Eclipse.

 

The older a vehicle gets the higher the likelihood it will need repairs or maintenance; when you go drive off in a Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross you can drive away with confidence knowing your vehicle is covered for years to come. Thinking the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse may be the right crossover for you?

We had the most Incredible Experience

I just had the most incredible experience- at a car dealership!! This past September we bought a Mitsubishi Outlander from the one of the kindest young men I have ever met-Brandon Robertson! With the sale of the car he said he would give two of their Mitsubishi mountain bikes to our daughters. I was supposed to pick them up shortly after the purchase of our car but as life would have it I put it off until today. When I got there all the bikes were gone except the display models on the roof racks of the cars in the showroom. After a few minutes talking to management, Brandon came out and said "I can't give you these bikes I promised but we can drive down to Canadian tire and I can buy you two bikes of your choice!!!!!" Seriously who does that?? Well, he did... and thanks to him my kids have brand new bikes for Christmas because he had the best costumer service!! That was totally not expected and we are very grateful. He answered all my questions with patience about things I forgot about the new car. I'm totally totally impressed and I would recommend them 100 times over. Thanks so much!!

This is our second vehicle purchase through southside Mitsubishi and we can't be happier. Aaron and Neil answered all of our concerns and took the care and consideration needed to help us through our deal. When I picked up my new car I had a fabulous bouquet of balloons and a HUGE bow on it. Made my day!

I use to be a die hard Ford Buyer.. but from recent experience with DK Ford in Leduc AB I could definitely say I will never purchase another Ford again. I can’t Rave enough from my AMAZING experience with Southside Mitsubishi in Edmonton AB. I dealt personally with both Mike as well as the sales associate Brian. They went above and beyond, Mike was working off hours on finding a buyer for my Ford Escape so I could maximize the trade in value. They are extremely quick and efficient. I was placed into an amazing vehicle that met my needs and even better on the wallet. Southside Mitsubishi worked tooth and nail for my business. I will continue to recommend this dealership. They are a company that cares about their customers and are willing to work with you so you leave happy!!!!!

We received excellent service from Aaron Glena , sales rep from Southside Mitsubishi. He gave us a deal that was very difficult to turn down. I am certain it was a compromise that may have cut into his and the dealership commission, for sure he nor the dealership have lost any money in this transaction but the point is that they are willing to dicker in good faith, in good will like the way honest business should be done. I am happy. Good luck Aaron and Southside Mitsubishi good simple: good faith, good will and a hand shake.

I bought my used car here and I had a great experience. Being a single female, I was a bit nervous about being taken advantage of but I got an amazing deal and was treated fantastic. My next car will be a Lancer and I'll come back to Southside to get it!

I went to this dealership due to an issue I had with my car and the service I had received from a previous location and I received above par service from two men. One was Aaron and a service manager named Colton. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. They were both very professional and helpful.

Love going in there even if its just for regular service! Always friendly people, very helpful. Just bought a second vehicle from them, with great upgrades at a price I'm willing to pay, and I'm cheap! Our salesman was professional personable and helped with free add-ons discounted pricing! I will always recommend buying a Mitsubishi regardless of where you get it, but for the best people I will always go to SouthSide Mitsubishi!

Mitsubishi and I have had our fair share of hardships concerning a deck that was put in, but at the end of the day the staff is always polite and helpful & the management team will always makes an effort to help u in anyway they can! I wasn't happy with the aftermarket deck I had gotten through them from ken wood and it has been 3 years worth of battles with the manufacturer.. even though it's way past warranty south side took the time to hear me out and are helping get something I am happy with! Thank you Mitsubishi south side!
