Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Taos than in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Volkswagen Taos.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as you will with the Volkswagen Taos, 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Taos. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Volkswagen Taos have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a little narrower than the Volkswagen Taos, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Taos.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Volkswagen Taos are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Taos, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Taos.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Volkswagen Taos. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has significantly less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Taos.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross than that of the Volkswagen Taos.
