Expert Rating

Summary


The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, unveiled in early 2017 and launched in the UK in early 2018. it sat between the smaller ASX and larger Outlander in the Mitsubishi SUV range until the company withdrew from the UK market altogether in September 2021.

Unlike the other traditionally rugged Mitsubishi SUVs in the family, the Eclipse Cross prioritises style over practicality, and competed against car-based crossovers like the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and countless other rivals.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media. At the time of Mitsubishi’s withdrawl in September 2021, its overall Expert Rating was 53%, based on 16 reviews from leading automotive media sites. That put it right down near the bottom of the mid-sized SUV/crossover market.

The Eclipse Cross received praise for its sharp styling and general comfort, but was criticised for its driving experience and lack of sophistication compared to the class leaders.
