Comfort and space in the front seats of the 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse rate as just acceptable, but don’t expect much out of the tight backseat.

Road & Track likes the feel of the front seats but points out that "rear-seat head room suffers." The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse's front seats are built to feel more like a cockpit than a car. "The low-slung driving position makes you feel like you're inside the car, not riding on top,” says Road & Track, and Cars.com calls out the "deep cutouts in the doors that give front-seat riders extra elbowroom."

The tight front-seat quarters of the 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse might make occupants feel as if they’re in a womb. It’s not for the claustrophobic; Motor Trend reports "the roof, dash, and door panels seem shrink-wrapped around you."

No reviewers have anything kind to say about the diminutive backseat, which is hard to access even if you want to place a child seat there. Cars.com points out that "the 50/50-split rear seatback folds down for more capacity."

The Eclipse Spyder convertible involves less compromise than some convertibles, with a level of comfort close to that of the coupe. Popular Mechanics says "its folding cloth top, which disappears beneath a hard tonneau cover at the touch of a button, helps distance it" from the competition.

Edmunds likes the “solid-quality materials, supportive seats and an especially nice optional stereo." Motor Trend criticizes the Mitsubishi Eclipse's greater "wind and road noise, and the body doesn't feel...solid."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse has a somewhat tight cabin that’s just comfortable enough for most in front, but don’t plan to carry backseat passengers or much cargo.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
