Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Eclipse Cross has a higher starting price than most rivals, but even the entry-level Eclipse Cross 2 has automatic air conditioning, a reversing camera, all-round electric windows, a 7.0in infotainment screen with a DAB radio and smartphone connectivity, plus auto lights and wipers.

Crucially, all versions get a raft of safety kit including automatic emergency braking, seven airbags and a lane-departure warning system. That should help reduce insurance costs and has helped the Eclipse Cross gain an impressive five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.

Overview

The Eclipse Cross is a real step forward for Mitsubishi, but it’s unlikely to trouble the best in class

  • Refined petrol engine
  • Spacious interior
  • Well equipped
  • Terrible ride
  • Not as agile as the Seat Ateca
  • Small boot
