Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Since this is only the second year for the Eclipse Cross, Mitsubishi has made very few changes. Midrange LE models now come with gloss-black window-switch controls and all Eclipse Cross models can now be equipped with roof rails.

Pros
Provocative styling,
sturdy build,
well-paired engine and transmission.

Cons
Busy rear design,
ho-hum fuel economy.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has adventurous style, but its running gear’s strictly ordinary.

Pros
Sharp styling
Low price of entry
Solid warranty
Safety features standard on most trims…

Cons
…But not on the base model
Not a value proposition
Short on interior space
Inexpensive-looking materials

Easy-to-use infotainment system

CONS
Ride quality is overly soft and bouncy
Subpar handling abilities
Disappointing fuel economy

For its second year on the market, the Encore GX receives only a few small updates. Both SiriusXM satellite radio and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have become standard features across the lineup, and adaptive cruise control is now available on the Preferred model as part of the optional Safety package.

Pros
Attractive exterior design,
SUV practicality,
good value compared to luxury-branded rivals.

Cons
Too many plasticky interior parts,
inadequate three-cylinder powertrains,
unexciting to drive.

Cons

Thick roof pillars reduce rear visibility
Ho-hum handling
