Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Renegade than in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The Jeep Renegade will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Renegade, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Jeep Renegade or the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Renegade is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Renegade is much wider than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jeep Renegade is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Jeep Renegade has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Renegade is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Renegade has a little more 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 Jeep Renegade and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jeep Renegade as you will in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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