2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross?

Mitsubishi calls the five-seat Eclipse Cross a compact SUV, but the brand already has one of those with the two-row Outlander Sport. The Eclipse Cross slots between the Outlander Sport and three-row Outlander in Mitsubishi’s lineup and is available in four trim levels: base ES, LE, SE and SEL. The Eclipse Cross faces competition from the Honda CR-V , Toyota RAV4  and Mazda CX-5 .

What’s New on the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross?

There’s a newly available accessory roof rail system, but otherwise the Eclipse Cross, which was new last year, carries over with no major changes.

What Features in the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Are Most Important?

All versions of the Eclipse Cross are powered by a 152-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the most efficient front-drive model gets 27 mpg combined, according to the EPA. A budget-friendly starting price and long bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties are part of the SUV’s appeal.

Available features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, a head-up display, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, push-button start, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a panoramic moonroof, heated front seats, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Available active safety features for the top-of-the-line SEL trim include adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam headlights.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross?

The Eclipse Cross brings unique style to the compact SUV class, but we found it lacking in many areas. Its engine isn’t that powerful, it doesn’t handle well, and it doesn’t offer much room in its backseat. If you’re open to other models, we thoroughly tested seven of them in our 2019 Compact SUV Challenge.

After months of searching, test driving and reading and watching reviews, I found a very slightly used '19 SE with 1,800 miles and took it home. The automotive press, for the most part have trashed or... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
