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

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.

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. The Jeep Wrangler is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
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.
