Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mitsubishi ASX doesn’t get the pulse racing, and its size makes it better for inner-urban use than open road touring. Because fuel economy can suffer if the engine is required to work too hard, it’s also better suited to terrain where engine performance is less of an issue.

Pros
Flexible, pragmatic interior
Well-specified equipment list
Goldilocks size for inner-urban use

Cons
Outdated material and build quality
Drivetrain really lacks verve
NVH and wind noise

By: 
motoring.com.au

Pros
Phone integration;
spacious interior;
five-year warranty.

Cons
Tyre noise.

The Mitsubishi ASX is a compact SUV that is, well, a little bit boring – something that matters in a class full of funky rivals such as the Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008 and Honda HR-V.

Pros
Low running costs
Roomy interior
Decent levels of kit

Cons
Not game changing
Not very stylish
Plasticky interior

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Mitsubishi has a plan to break out of its current austerity mode, during which the brand’s occasional sparks of edgy design and performance-oriented engineering have remained in a deep slumber. The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the first fruit of that effort, and it’s intended to signal a course correction toward a more compelling lineup.

Pros
Distinctive design,
better interior than the Outlander Sport,
lots of tech for the money.

Cons
Far from quick,
CVT kills driving enjoyment.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a compact crossover that aims to bring high-class looks to a mass-market buyer. It works, but not without some compromise.

Pros
Compelling value
Competent engine
Sharp steering
Handsome crossover looks

Cons
Bulky infotainment setup
Lackluster interior
Confused exterior details
Advanced safety reserved for top-tier models

By:

The Eclipse Cross is an all-new model for 2018.The SE S-AWC is the trim level that makes the most sense to us. It packs a good amount of technology and active safety features, plus a handful of minor but useful interior upgrades such as illuminated vanity mirrors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

PROS
Provides plenty of standard features
Turbocharged engine delivers peppy performance
Easy-to-use infotainment system

CONS
Top trim-level pricing is similar to better driving compact SUVs
Not much fun to drive around turns
Ride quality is a bit rough
