2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek

Mitsubishi has a knack for producing some of the most popular crossovers on the market. As a result, we thought it only fitting to compare the 2022 Eclipse Cross with the new Subaru Crosstrek. These two market staples make natural adversaries between their revamped designs, affordable price points, and extensive suite of safety features. If you're based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island or any of the nearby areas of Montague, Souris, Kensington, or Summerside, find out how the new Eclipse Cross compares below and contact Charlottetown Mitsubishi to schedule a test drive.

Comparing - Fuel Economy

Both crossovers offer big bang for their buck. While the new Subaru Crosstrek's fuel economy is more than class-competitive, the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross yields comparable numbers with significantly better torque. At 9.6 L/100km, the new Eclipse Cross' city fuel consumption ranks among the best in its class, meaning it won't put a dent in your cash flow after your purchase.

Comparing - Price

Those in the market for a reliable new crossover will find plenty of great options among the new Eclipse Cross and Subaru Crosstrek's lineups. Their respective base models both come in at under $30,000, although the Crosstrek's price tag may get a tad hefty from its mid-level trims onward. And if you're understandably curious as to what you'd be paying for, rest assured, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers everything from superior torque to varied safety functions to comprehensive connectivity without depleting your savings.

Comparing Interior & Exterior Style

Subaru has long made a point to prioritize function over appearances, and the 2021 Crosstrek is no different. On the inside, its ergonomics are certainly nothing to sneeze at, but its lack of style and refinement become more of a problem in its pricier trims.

The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, on the other hand, boasts a sleek cabin with supportive seating and plenty of attractive materials. This Mitsubishi crossover doesn't sacrifice practicality for looks, either, as it comfortably seats five and competes with many competitors in terms of cargo capacity. Drivers will also be thrilled to hear the Eclipse Cross' infotainment touchscreen is angled toward their side of the cabin for easier access to personalized settings.

On the outside, both crossovers head into their respective new model years with redesigned front and rear ends, with the latest Eclipse Cross sporting a revamped liftgate instead of the split-window version of old. While the new Subaru Crosstrek hits the market with a more stylish frame, it remains rather underwhelming at first glance, bearing more shades of a hatchback or station wagon than an SUV. On the other hand, the Eclipse Cross is a sight to behold thanks to its black grille, chrome accents, sporty silhouette, and angular headlight arrangements. In other words, if you prefer a more elevated appearance and driving experience, look no further than the latest Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Comparing Safety Features

The new Crosstrek may have hit the market with solid safety ratings. Still, its lineup of standard safety functions is pretty bare, meaning you'll have to splurge for goods like adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking.

The 2022 Eclipse Cross includes various standard safety functions from active stability control to a brake assist system to forward collision mitigation. And, the Mitsubishi crossover's safety suite only gets better as you head down its lineup, with blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert functions coming standard in all but one trim.

Mitsubishi Warranty

The Eclipse Cross' safety package isn't the only thing allowing you to hit the road with a clear head. Indeed, this new crossover is covered by Mitsubishi's lauded 10-5-5 warranty plan. This comprehensive package protects your powertrain for up to10 years or 160,000 km, with a New Vehicle Limited warranty covering five years or 100,000 km. Rounding out the 10-5-5 plan is five years' worth of complimentary roadside assistance, offering you a helping hand when you need it most without a mileage cap.
