The 2022 Eclipse Cross has received some significant styling updates, particularly in the exterior part. Upfront, a new Dynamic Shield grille design is dominant and it's more similar to the rest of the recently updated Mitsubishi lineup, such as the 2021 Outlander Sport. The two-piece rear window design has been swapped out in favor of a one-piece unit. Nothing has changed under the hood; the 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine sends power to either the front-wheels or all four wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). 

On the interior part, it now features an eight-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) system on LE trims and higher. Instead of the touchpad controller, there's now a touchscreen that sits two inches closer to the driver and has conventional volume and tuning knobs. The myQ Connected garage door opener and TomTom navigation are optional. Sales are expected to commence later this year.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross stands out in the compact-SUV segment crowd with its sporty looks. All models come standard with a 152-horsepower turbocharged 1.5L engine which provides merely adequate acceleration. Don’t mistake it for a serious off-roader going by its looks but the Eclipse Cross's chassis does at least deliver a calm ride for easy cruising giving it a great mile-muncher title. Given that the Eclipse Cross for 2022 got a lot of changes on the exterior and few on the interior part but it falls short in competing against the likes of Japanese rivals like Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, and Subaru Forester.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Pricing and Features

Offering a full suite of upgrades inside and out and powered by a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine mated to a CVT, the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross starts at just $23,395. Options are limited by trim, although Mitsubishi’s motorsport-derived Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel-drive system can be added to any trim level for $1,600, which brings heated side mirrors when not already standard. 

There’s a Welcome package that adds carpeted floor mats, a cargo mat, and a paint pen. The SE offers a Panoramic Sunroof package, which costs $1,000 extra over SE’s MSRP. The biggest option bundle is the SEL’s Touring Package that brings upgraded audio, a power panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation with high-speed braking, roof rails, and a head-up display and could be had by paying $2,100 extra over SEL’s MSRP.

The compact crossover slots between the smaller 2021 Outlander Sport and larger Outlander three-row SUV which took the year off for 2021.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has an average customer rating of three stars out of five. The Kelly Blue Book has awarded Eclipse Cross fifth place in consumer ratings and the Japanese are one of the fastest-growing automakers in the US market. The Eclipse Cross has also been given a rating of good by IIHS for the 2020 model. Let’s find out how the 2022 Eclipse Crossover will fare in ownership costs and how reliable is the Eclipse.

Ownership Costs and Reliability

The reliability score for the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as rated by J.D. Power is 2.5 out of 5, which is just average and not a good match when compared to its competitors. This said, one point to note is the fact that there have been no safety recalls issued by the NHTSA against the car manufacturers.









New Jersey




*All prices shown here are for the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SE trim

On average, the Eclipse Cross is priced around $22,574 across the states. Mitsubishi costs an average of $535 annually in repairs, which is above the average ownership costs, and this statistic is not helped by the fact that a Mitsubishi vehicle is 12% more probable of needing severe repair compared to other car manufacturers. The total ownership cost of the Eclipse Cross SUV can amount to around $21,000 assuming that the vehicle travels around 15,000 miles over a period of five years.

Other than this Mitsubishi is offering a factory rebate of $1000 and a loyalty discount of $1000 on the purchase of 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.


Mitsubishi offers a standard warranty of five years/60,000 miles and an impressive powertrain warranty of 10 years or 100,000 miles. The company also offers a 7-year/100,000 miles Anti-corrosion/Perforation Limited warranty and a 5 years/Unlimited miles roadside assistance.



Basic Warranty

5 years/ 60,000 miles; whichever is earlier* 

Powertrain Warranty

10 years/ 100,000 miles; whichever is earlier*

Roadside assistance Warranty

5 years/ unlimited miles; whichever is earlier*

Anti-corrosion/Perforation Warranty

7 years/ 100,000 miles; whichever is earlier*

The company tries its best to give its customer peace of mind about the long-lasting durability of its vehicle.

Miles Per Dollar

On average, a gallon of gas costs around 2.5 USD. Considering the fact that it offers around 26-29 miles per gallon, it should come to a ballpark figure of 10 miles per dollar.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Buying Advice

The Eclipse Cross is one of the several Mitsubishi vehicles that is going through a redesign right now. The 2022 Eclipse Cross will carry forward the front fascia from the previous iterations but the rear fascia sees some drastic styling change. The Eclipse’s powertrain options will get the same 1.5L turbo-four cylinder engine and make it more refined, in terms of fuel consumption. There’s also a new infotainment system on offer that will feature an updated Mitsubishi Connect. The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross starts from $23,395 and goes up to $27,395 for the top trim. If you are looking for a car in this segment then the Eclipse Cross locks its horns with the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and the Subaru Forester.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Engine and Performance

The 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has only one engine choice. It’s a 1.5-liter direct-injected turbocharged gasoline engine pumping out 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. There’s also only one transmission choice, a CVT automatic. However, you will have to choose between front-wheel or all-wheel drive, so maybe those nails aren’t so safe, after all.

Compared to its rivals the Eclipse Cross lags in terms of power figures and thanks to its CVT it is not even fun to drive either. The Honda CR-V leads the pack with the highest power figures and thanks to its beautifully tuned CVT which not only is eager to perform but also graciously masks the rubber band effect. The performance figures of the Mazda CX-5 and that of Subaru Forester remain a close tie.


Make no mistake, the Eclipse Cross's turbocharged four-cylinder isn't going to set anyone's heart aflame. For 0 to 60 mph it takes 8.6 seconds. Paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), the engine delivers power smoothly. Aggressive throttle applications evoke less engine noise than expected, and highway cruising is quiet and unremarkable—just what we want from crossovers in this class.

*2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse figures

The Eclipse Cross’s 2020 figures are remarkably slower than all of its competitors except for Honda CR-V and we would reserve our view on this till the official figures for 2022 are released.

Ride and Handling

Changes to the 2022 Eclipse Cross go beyond the sheet metal. The suspension has been thoroughly refined, with retuned shocks and springs, including the addition of larger rear shock shafts for better ride control. .Additional changes include the rear suspension cross member now being connected by a double vibration insulator for a more rigid connection, offering a more planted feel than the previous bushing setup.

The Eclipse Cross's suspension is clearly tuned for comfort; taking corners at speed results in moderate body roll. That softness pays off in its ride quality, with the chassis remaining composed while driving over broken pavement and railroad crossings. However, small cracks in the road transmit vibrations up through the steering wheel and seats, something rival crossovers such as the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5 smooth out more thoroughly. Steering is accurate and light—which is good for parking-lot maneuverability but discourages back-road antics.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Fuel Economy

Fuel economy isn’t Eclipse Cross’s forte. The EPA says the Eclipse Cross is supposed to do better in the city than many of its rivals, but that can vary according to your driving habits when making comparisons. The base ES front-wheel-drive model is the thriftiest with EPA ratings of 26 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined. While the all-wheel-drive variant returns a mileage of 25 mpg in the city and 28 mpg out on the highway.

The fuel economy figures are below average for the Eclipse Cross and again the Honda CR-V shines in this comparison with an overall 30 mpg of combined gas mileage. The Subaru Forester is behind it at 29 mpg and the Mazda CX-5 comes at third place with 28 mpg of combined gas mileage.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Interior

A new interior welcomes Eclipse Cross shoppers for 2022. Inside the updated Eclipse Cross, the interior now offers a light gray leather seat option with color-contrasting black accents for the first time. This new interior color choice is only available on the SEL trim. The new interior color option is complemented by color-coordinated door trim and seats, leading to a high-quality and refined interior aesthetic. 

Also new is an optional power passenger seat, available on SEL models. Driver and front passenger heated seats are standard on LE, SE, and SEL trims. A heated steering wheel is standard on the SEL trim, while the SEL with Touring package adds heated rear seats. The rear seats feature a standard reclining function, with nine distinct recline positions. The touchscreen increases in size from 7.0” to 8.0” on all but the base model, and Mitsubishi says it's mounted closer to the front-seat riders. It also now has volume and tuning knobs, and the touchpad on the console has been removed.


Highlighting the upgraded interior is a new eight-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) system, available on LE, SE, and SEL trims, offering drivers more ways to stay safely connected while on the road.The touchscreen has been moved two inches closer to the driver and features volume and tuning knobs for easier use. The previous center console touchpad has been removed. Vehicles equipped with the new eight-inch SDA system feature standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. ES trims receive a standard seven-inch Display Audio touch screen infotainment system. An onboard navigation system with industry-first embedded what3words integration is now standard on Eclipse Cross SE and SEL. 

As a global addressing system, what3words divides the world into a grid of three-meter-by-three-meter squares, each of which is assigned a unique what3words address. The system allows pinpoint navigation, even in remote, unpopulated areas, offering greater accuracy and specificity than street address-based systems. The optional navigation system also includes TomTom live traffic information and mapping. The 2022 Eclipse Cross is the first production vehicle to be offered with what3words embedded directly into its navigation system.

Cargo Capacity

Eclipse Cross now offers a maximum total storage capacity of 50.1 cubic feet with the second row folded, and 23.4 cubic feet with the second row upright.

Exterior Features

Outside, the 2022 Eclipse Cross grows in size and wears a new bumper and the latest, most striking version of the brand’s Dynamic Shield grille design which presents a sportier and more futuristic appearance. A newly styled bisected lighting design features thin, high-mounted LED daytime running lights (DRLs) at the leading edge of the hood with integrated turn signal lamps just below. Stacked-and-recessed assemblies combine headlamp and fog lamp in a low-mounted position. The sophisticated design has been carried through to the rear of the vehicle, with a completely restyled rear hatch and window. The single-piece rear window and revised hatch design, combined with an increase in overall vehicle length, add both styling and cargo space benefits, with the update providing one additional cubic foot of storage with the tonneau cover installed. 

The Sharply sculpted hexagonal liftgate design is a nod to famous Mitsubishi Vehicles of the past and integrates the vehicle's iconic three-dimensional taillights to create a wide and stable presence. 

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exterior

The extensive redesign of the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross results in a longer, sleeker, and more luxurious compact SUV. The vehicle has gained more than five inches in overall length, now measuring 178.9 inches long, 71.1 inches wide and 66.3 inches high in 2WD, and 66.5 inches high in S-AWC. The wheelbase remains unchanged at 105.1 inches. Designers increased the vehicle’s front and rear overhangs for both improved functionality (cargo capacity) and to optimize proportions for appealing, sporty aesthetics.

Ground clearance (in)





Wheelbase (in)





The Eclipse Cross has the smallest dimensions in this comparison but thanks to its interior design engineers the car manage to carve out the second-best wheelbase of 105.1 inches in this comparison. For reference, the Subaru Forester is the longest and the widest of all has the same wheelbase. The smartly designed rear of the Eclipse Cross helps it to offer more cargo space than cars with similar dimensions.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Safety

Every 2022 Eclipse Cross comes with standard advanced driver assistance systems, including standard Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) with Pedestrian Detection And Lane Departure Warning (LDW) on all trims. Those seeking the latest safety technology will also appreciate that Automatic High Beam (AHB) assist headlamps and rain-sensing wipers are standard on LE, SE, and SEL trim levels. SE and above trims continue to offer other key safety features as standard equipment, including Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Every model also gets automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane-departure warnings.

The NHTSA hasn’t tested the 2022 model but the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has been tested and it has got five stars in overall front crash rating, five stars in side crash rating, and four-star in rollover test rating. While the IIHS has given the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross a rating of good in front overlap crash, side crash, roof strength, head restraints, and seat test. The vehicle got a score of acceptable to poor for its headlights depending upon the variant and was given a rating of superior for the vehicle to vehicle crash prevention but was given a rating of basic for the vehicle to pedestrian crash prevention.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Competition

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Vs 2021 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is in a neck to neck competition with the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The Mazda is better than its Japanese counterpart in almost all the features. The vehicle also gets a six-speed automatic when compared to the Eclipse’s CVT which naturally makes the Mazda the better performer of the two. But the Eclipse has an impressive cabin and a cheaper price tag. Overall, the choice between the two may just come down to better power and performance of CX-5 or the practicality and comfort of Eclipse.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Vs 2021 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a class above the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offering better comfort, features, and performance when compared to the latter. The Honda is better compared to Mitsubishi in almost all the departments by a huge margin but all that comes with a price bump. The Honda CR-V is both more powerful and refined in a way that it has a personality that commands attention when taken on the road. Although both come with similar powertrain and gearbox combination it's the Honda which is very engaging to drive and offers excitement and thrill that is just not present in the Mitsubishi.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Final Verdict

Almost everything that the Mitsubishi Eclipse does, its rival can do better. But at the price it is offered makes it difficult to ignore at the same time. For the price asked, the Eclipse’s interior is nicely put together, the interior space and the cargo space is class-leading, and Mitsubishi offers a fantastic array of class-leading warranties for its SUV. That being said, if the Eclipse had a stand-alone evaluation, it would prove to be capable enough to live with, but putting it next to the competition might tilt the scale against it. Aside from its class-leading warranty and nice interior setup, perhaps the only other positive would be that Eclipse is around $2,000 cheaper than rivals, but for an extra two thousand, you can get your hands on a CR-V that puts most rivals to shame.

How to waste money 101

Pros - Nothing

Cons - Everything

It has been more than four months since I bought it and I have to tell you this is not what I expected it to be. The ride quality is poor, suspensions are stiff and I can feel each and every bump on the road. Handling is below decent and needs a lot of improvement. I had high hopes for my new Mitsubishi but it is very disappointing, to say the least. The only good thing is- how safe it is. Poor visibility, uncomfortable seats, and lack of legroom in the back row. Even though I don? like the interior there is no denying the fact that the exterior is pretty good. It is a good looking vehicle. I have not had any accidents so I? not sure about safety. Reliability is questionable. There are a few issues that can be problematic in the long run. Waste of money! Even though I don? really like my car, I had a good experience buying it.

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross review

Pros - Back up camera and parking sensors, warranty period, price

Cons - Short of headroom in second row, over done rear fascia, no seat warmers

I absolutely love this car. It drives well and gets great mileage. Decent acceleration, parking sensors and back up camera to check all the right boxes making it practical for daily use. Doesn't know of android auto which is there in my wife's car. Interior is not so spacious, even if the two row seat are folded down I couldn? get even more floor space to hold up my stuff. The seats are pretty fine for certain times of sit and travel. I like the red diamond body color and nicely finished body style of the car. It has a backup camera, and it lets me know if anything is behind me or if a car is coming by. On top of this, parking sensors also come handy to park it in tight spaces This car is reliable and I always look forward driving it despite its shortcomings Just $321 a month to drive this beauty Great customer service.

Eclipse can't find a way around for sure

Pros - Smooth and sturdy

Cons - Underpowered, numb handling, stiff seats

Smooth and sturdy and can surely take on bad roads with some smile. Handling and acceleration is just not something that deserves recognition I think. Seats are stiff and suspension works pretty well there to cover that up Stiff seats and not so spacious cabin. Instead, the cargo space is more than ample which could have been used for a more advantageous cabin. Sturdy at least and nothing comes off loose even if flooring the pedal on bad roads. Something that has turned me a little nuts about this car. It just knows how to stay robust despite any kind of drive. Sturdy design. Needs a little more horses to pull it and nothing more than that Nicely priced but the deal value is not going to be as good as it should after a couple of years na
