2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross reader test team review
Having a spacious, well-equipped family SUV is vital for any brand these days. How will Mitsubishi’s effort fare?...
Mitsubishi has always been a small brand in the UK, taking less than 1% of new car sales.
But SUVs have exploded in popularity, and this is an area in which the Japanese company considers itself something of an expert. It built its first 4x4 way back in 1936, found success in the 1990s with the brawny Shogun and has since added the popular Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid and the baby ASX.
It's powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with front or four-wheel drive, while a 2.2-litre diesel will come later and a hybrid is under consideration.
We rate the Eclipse Cross, which is on sale now, at three stars, but how will our readers view this new model?
