Check Out This Comparison Between the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross & the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek to See How Mitsubishi Shines

Finding the right compact crossover here in Wantagh or the Long Island area can take a little skill and finesse, since there are so many different options out there. Before you decide on any one vehicle, it makes sense to do a little window shopping, check out your choices, and compare and contrast. When it comes to the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, we've already fallen for this handsome crossover new to the Mitsubishi lineup, and if you'd like to see exactly what we're head-over-heels about, check out this comparison between the 2018 Eclipse Cross and one of its toughest rivals in the segment, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek.

Why compare the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross with the Subaru Crosstrek? Simple-because the 2018 Crosstreak is a pretty great crossover SUV, but once drivers from Smithtown or Massapequa, NY see how the 2018 Mitsubishi Cross fares in a head-to-head comparison, it'll be clear who the greater crossover really is.

Power & Handling

  • With the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, you start off right with a standard CVT, whereas that feature will cost you extra on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, which starts with a six-speed manual transmission.
  • In terms of power, these two crossovers are actually evenly matched across horsepower, but torque tells a different story; the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross features a standard 1.5-liter Turbocharged inline-four that serves up 152 horsepower but 184 pound-feet of torque, which that standard CVT puts to very good use. By contrast, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek's standard engine is a 2.0-liter flat-four that also produces 152 horsepower, but only 145 pound-feet of torque.

Safety & Technology

  • While the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek offers a standard rearview camera (so does the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross!) and available front and rear parking sensors, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SEL trim makes a Multi-View Camera standard, which features a 360° view of your vehicle's surroundings, making it easier to park and reverse the car with confidence. Sure, the beeps in the 2018 Crosstrek might alert you to an obstacle, but the camera in the 2018 Eclipse Cross SEL will show you what it is.

Warranty Coverage

  • This is where the race really starts to get away from the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, since its warranty simply can't match up to the 2018 Eclipse Cross'. The 2018 Eclipse Cross offers a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, which includes 24/7 Roadside Assistance. On the other side of things, the 2018 Crosstrek's basic warranty is only 3-years/36,000-miles.
  • The pattern holds true on the powertrain warranties, too, with the 2018 Eclipse Cross featuring a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty, which well bests the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek's 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Warranty.
  • The trend follows again with corrosion protection, with the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek offering 5-years of protection, falling two years short of the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross' 7-year Corrosion Warranty.
