Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trax than in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Trax and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trax as you will with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Trax will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trax carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trax is a little narrower than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Chevrolet Trax is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Trax doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Handling
The Chevrolet Trax has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trax and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Trax as you will in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Trax is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
