2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Design

One look is all it takes to see that the design philosophies behind the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross are very different. We prefer the clean, aerodynamic, car-like lines of the Crosstrek to the bulky and visually confusing Eclipse Cross, of course--but looks aren't everything. Fortunately, the 2018 Crosstrek also has plenty of practical advantages. It has greater passenger volume than the Eclipse Cross, as well as greater maximum cargo volume. If you need even more room to carry cargo, the Crosstrek has your back: a roof rack comes standard on every new 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, whereas it's only an available upgrade on the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Performance

The engines on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross generate the exact same amount of horsepower; however, the driving experience is vastly different. While the Eclipse Cross gets a standard inline engine, the Crosstrek has an innovative SUBARU BOXER® engine that gives it a lower center of gravity for impressive handling. The Crosstrek also comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for impressive capability; while AWD is available on the Eclipse Cross, it will cost you even more to make the upgrade, further widening the price gap between these two vehicles.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek vs 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Safety

Subaru believes that your safety is a top priority, and it puts this into practice. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek its prestigious 2018 Top Safety Pick award; the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, on the other hand, earned no IIHS awards at all. Though both vehicles have plenty of safety features, the innovation of Subaru is hard to beat. You can choose to equip your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with LED steering-responsive headlights, for example--a feature that is not available on the Eclipse Cross. To get more features at a lower price, be sure to choose the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, available at Carter Subaru Ballard.
