Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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

For many reasons, the Acura RDX is one of our top picks in the luxury compact SUV segment. It's a well-made and well-equipped SUV that is a clear, premium step up from mainstream compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V. Its value is undeniable and a must-drive for buyers who value smart engineering and style equally.

PROS
Strong acceleration and fuel economy from standard V6 engine
Elevated rear seat provides generous legroom and a commanding view
More features than competitors at a similar or much lower price
Generous cargo capacity for the segment

CONS
Cabin lacks overtly luxurious look and feel
High-tech safety features and adaptive cruise control don't work as well as some rival systems
Technology interface can be distracting to use

By:

The 2018 Acura RDX ranked #1 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Acura RDX has a score of 8.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Spacious, adult-friendly seats in both rows
Convenient cargo area
Refined, competent V6 engine

Cons
Complicated, confusing infotainment systems
Fewer available amenities than some rivals
No engine or performance upgrades available
