The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a fresh start from an automaker looking for new ideas. Emphasis on start, there. The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.
