Based in Tokyo, Japan, Mitsubishi Motors Corp. is part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and sells SUVs in the U.S. Like some competitors, Mitsubishi has all but eliminated its car offerings in recent years, including the Lancer compact sedan and enthusiast-favorite Lancer Evolution, better known as the Evo.

The subcompact Mirage hatchback and its sedan counterpart, the Mirage G4, are among the most affordable new cars, but these are expected to be discontinued soon. Still available is one of the first subcompact SUVs, the Outlander Sport, which debuted for 2011. The regular Outlander is a larger compact SUV with room for up to seven people in three rows of seating (though that third row is very small); it shares its platform with the Nissan Rogue and can be had as a plug-in hybrid. Between the Outlander Sport and Outlander is the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, a coupe-like SUV with room for five that takes the Eclipse part of its name from a car Mitsubishi once sold here.
