The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is exactly what the automaker needs and what many customers want, with a splash of unique styling and high tech goodies to round out the package.

Summing it up is easy: The Eclipse Cross is another compact crossover for Mitsubishi, but one that’s more focused on style, handling, and technology than the more family-friendly Outlander and value-packed but smaller Outlander Sport(called the RVR in Canada).

Mitsubishi is offering another crossover because that’s all people want to buy right now. The brand wants to be a destination for crossover-crazed consumers and the new Eclipse Cross is part of the plan.

Seems worse than a Kia Sportage in every way. Shame they called it an Eclipse.

I'm not sure why Mitsu and Ford is making their turbo versions so tiny. The Kia/Hyundai turbo stuff is 2 liters (na is 2.4) and I just wouldn't want to live with a small suv with a 1.5 turbo pulling hills.

My wife has a 2017 Escape AWD 2.0L ecoboost. That is the perfect amount of power for a crossover. And it tows 3500 lbs too.

I agree, it’s sad Mitsubishi has abandoned their sports car offerings. No excitement from their lineup. Blah!

yeah I've just heard the 1.5 is a dog, didn't know they offered both. Ford's website is awful to try to find that out.

I wasn't a happy camper when I found out they were going to call this an Eclipse. It looks like every other automaker's offerings and the Eclipse name doesn't belong on an SUV.

The fact that Ford is abandoning all cars buy 2 to go after SUVs and trucks shows what the market wants. Mitsubishi is just going where the money is. With that said, they use to sell almost 200,000 Eclipses a year in the late 90's. Why can't they make something similar today?
