The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross may be a new entry for the crossover segment, but its popularity is already on the rise. Compared to competitors like the Subaru Crosstrek, Mazda CX-5, and Ford Escape, the Eclipse Cross manages to stand out as a jack-of-all-trades.
Both the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder BOXER® engine and the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross’ 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine produce a similar 152 horsepower. However, while the Crosstrek’s engine only generates 145 lb-ft of torque, the engine of the Eclipse Cross can produce up to 184 lb-ft of torque, proof that it excels in this aspect of performance.
