Used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2018-present review

Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross hatchback?

The Peugeot 3008 drives much more like a car than the Eclipse Cross. Its 1.2-litre petrol engine is a fine unit, and there are some strong diesels that are nice and efficient for long journeys. Its interior isn’t quite are well finished as some, such as the Skoda Karoq's, but the fantastic design more than makes up for some cheap plastics on the lower portion of the dashboard and doors.

If you want a plush interior, look at the Skoda Karoq. It might look a bit dull, but you can’t knock the quality and it gets plenty of kit as standard. You’ll be treated to a comfortable ride with light steering, and no matter which engine you go for, it’ll be efficient and willing.

The Seat Ateca is a fun SUV to drive, and if you go for the turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine, it’s quite fast, too. If you go for an FR model, you’ll get lots of equipment, including LED headlights, a larger infotainment screen and a rear-view camera.
