2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SE Review: So Close, Yet So Far
A sporty nameplate on a compact crossover is what enthusiasts might deem “sacrilegious.” We weren't as offended by Mitsubishi's decision to use the Eclipse nameplate for its latest CUV, though. Our hope, at least, was that this new crossover would be at least half as sporty as the classic coupe with the same name. But quickly, Mitsubishi dashed our dreams.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a perfectly fine crossover; it looks stylish and has some nice, new tech. In fact, it's one of the best products the company has ever built. But in a crowded segment against a more established crop, not even a nostalgiac name combined with Mitsubishi's most valiant effort is enough. There are still far better options.
