Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Outlander than in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Outlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Outlander.
