2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. Its Competition

2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Eclipse Cross competes in the most valuable segment for automakers now—competition is thick and fierce.

We named the 2019 Subaru Forester our Best Car To Buy 2019 for its standard safety systems and value.

The Toyota RAV4 is new this year, and more refined, but still lags behind in some respects such as interior space.

The Honda CR-V is a stalwart in the class, and a popular pick, mostly due to its spacious cabin.

The Ford Escape is older than the rest of the class now, discounts should be plentiful.

The Chevy Equinox is relatively new and offers a long-legged turbodiesel for better efficiency.
