2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. Its Competition

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Eclipse Cross is already fighting an uphill battle, wielding less size and power in the most competitive industry in America.

The Honda CR-V is by now a default choice with its spacious cabin and versatility.

The Toyota RAV4 is perhaps the most popular crossover in America, and for very good reasons: the latest edition cuts a fine figure and performs much better than in the past.

Hyundai’s Tucson is a slightly smaller choice than the ballooning size of the Honda and Toyota RAV4.

The Kia Sportage is based on the same platform as the Tucson, but we think it looks and drives nicer.

Subaru’s excellent Forester offers standard all-wheel drive and safety features, making it our 2019 Best Car to Buy.
