What Car? says...
Mitsubishi might not spring to mind as immediately as Land Rover or Jeep when you think about SUVs, but the japanese brand actually beat both of those brands to the punch when it built its first 4x4 back in 1936, and has enjoyed a big market presence ever since.
With models like the Shogun Sport and Outlander on its CV, Mitsubishi certainly has experience under its belt. Today, the Eclipse Cross is intended to bring the brand’s expertise to the family SUV market, where it competes directly with the Skoda Karoq, Peugeot 3008 and Nissan Qashqai, as well as the Seat Ateca, Kia Sportage and Renault Kadjar – all of which are deservedly popular.
