Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The Jeep Wrangler 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler 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). The Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler is much wider than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, making the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

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