Comparison Review

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Subaru Crosstrek, with comparable head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

With the Subaru Crosstrek, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or the Subaru Crosstrek, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is about the same width as the Subaru Crosstrek. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Crosstrek.

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

If you've got something you need to pull, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will do just as well as the Subaru Crosstrek, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a little less horsepower than the Subaru Crosstrek.

With somewhat higher torque, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Subaru Crosstrek.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Subaru Crosstrek. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has less cargo space than the Subaru Crosstrek, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
