Battle Of 2022 Mitsubishi: Outlander Sport AWC vs. Eclipse Cross SUV

If you’ve been following up on all the 2022 Mitsubishi SUV models, you’d have come across the Outlander Sport and Eclipse Cross. These models are quite similar. They both have a thin and sleek crossover body. Most of all, if you are searching for an adventurous and responsive vehicle, either one of them will be a perfect on-road match.

Since they have a similar body style, it may be difficult to pick out the differences. We clearly understand that! However, before you schedule a test drive, we want to give you a clear comparison of these two vehicles. We’re pretty sure you’ll make an informed decision after reading through this piece.

Sizing And Crossover Design

This luxury crossover SUV is the smaller vehicle between the two with a 171.9-inch length and 64.8-inch height. When the rear is raised up, the Outlander Sport is of 49.5 cubic-feet cargo capacity for your belongings. Besides, roof rails aren’t a compulsory feature.

This SUV also has heated side mirrors with power folding features on the GT and SE trims which are much needed in winter.

This model stands has a length of 66.5 inches and 173.4 inches. Like the Outlander Sport, it has a five-seat interior layout with seven exterior color options. It is also equipped with heated side mirrors along with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof that can make all-season driving interesting. However, the cargo capacity behind the rear row is a bit lesser than the Outlander Sport and is at 48.9 cubic-feet.

Performance And Fuel Economy

The Outlander Sport is equipped with the 148-horsepower 2.0-liter MIVEC four-cylinder engine in the SE trim and changes to the 168-horsepower 2.4-liter MIVEC engine in the GT trim.

With the 2.0-liter engine, you’ll be enjoying maximum fuel economy with 30 mpg interstate and 24 mpg on city roads. Also, this model has an All-Wheel Control that’s fuel efficient like its two-wheel counterpart.

In contrast, the Eclipse Cross has the same powertrain for all its four trims, which is the 1.5-liter direct-injection turbo engine. This powertrain reaches 184 pound-feet of torque and 152 horsepower around Connecticut. More so, it has an all-wheel control for all-star traction which combines anti-lovk brake system, active stability control, etc.

If you settle for the all-wheel-drive system, you’ll be sacrificing part of your fuel economy for better traction (26 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg on the city streets)

Safety And Technology

This vehicle features a Bluetooth wireless system, seven-inch Smartphone Link Display Audio System, and two USB ports to stay engaged while driving during. In addition to staying entertained, there are available safety feature options that help monitor objects behind you, your blind spots, accident triggers, and visibility.

The Eclipse Cross has a seven-inch touchscreen display, head-up display, and smartphone compatibility.
