2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross OVERVIEW

The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross isn’t a sports coupe like its namesake, but it’s an important part of Mitsubishi’s modern lineup. Rivals like the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 are formidable, but the Eclipse Cross is still a decent package of practicality and value.

What's New for 2018

The Eclipse Cross is an all-new model for 2018.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The Eclipse Cross makes a priority of design, which Mitsubishi says was inspired by a runner at the starting gate. Unfortunately, the sloping roof makes for a slightly underwhelming cargo capacity of 22.6 cubic feet. The rear seats do fold down, which allows up to 48.9 cubic feet of space.

Under the hood of the Eclipse Cross is a 1.5-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder producing 152 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission. In front-wheel-drive form, the EPA estimates mileage at 25 mpg city, 28 highway, and 26 combined. All-wheel drive is standard on all except the most basic trim, where it’s available for an extra $600.

Mitsubishi is all about adding value in the options, and all Eclipse Crosses come with modern features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, and a rearview camera. The rest of the features are divided by trim, of which there are four: ES, LE, SE, and SEL.


The cheapest of the litter, the Eclipse Cross ES starts at $24,290 ($24,890 with AWD) after a $995 destination fee. With the ES you get the basics, plus a few goodies like heated side mirrors, a USB port, and Mitsubishi’s new seven-inch infotainment touchscreen. Wheels are 16-inch alloys, and the sound system is a basic four-speaker setup.

Available accessories are spartan, limited to cosmetic upgrades, lighting additions, and basic amenities like wheel locks. The one significant tech option is a rear parking assist sensor, which is available for $510.


Starting with the LE trim, all Eclipse Crosses come with all-wheel drive. For $25,890, the LE upgrades to 18-inch alloy rims and adds a few standard technology features. The system includes a touchpad controller near the shifter, along with an extra USB port, Apple and Android compatibility, and a trial subscription to satellite radio. This trim is mostly a cosmetic upgrade, and it opens up a couple exterior details like black lug nuts and wheel locks. Otherwise, options remain the same.


At $27,390, the Eclipse Cross SE starts to push into the price terrain of more established rivals. To sweeten the deal, it comes standard with comforts like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an upgraded sound system, a two-year subscription to Mitsubishi’s Connect telematics system, and heated front seats. Push-button start, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic on/off headlights add more convenience. The seats get a surface upgrade, and the center rear seat folds down into an armrest with cupholders. The LE also includes a few modern safety features like blind-spot warnings, rear traffic alerts, and lane-change assist. Standalone options remain the same as the cheaper trims.


For $28,890, buyers get the most luxurious Eclipse Cross Mitsubishi can manage. It includes leather seats, LED headlights, a driver heads-up display, and a multi-view camera system, in addition to all the features of the SE trim.

The big addition of the SEL trim is the option to add a Touring Package. For $2,500, the package adds a sunroof, Rockford Fosgate speakers, automatic high beams, roof rails, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A few safety features come packaged as well, including forward collision warnings, lane-departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control.

CarsDirect Tip

The selling point for the Eclipse Cross is the features that Mitsubishi packs in for the price. The SE trim is probably the sweet spot, although if you don’t need the features, the ES is a cheap way to get a capable all-wheel-drive crossover at a low price.
