2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross vs. Toyota CH-R
For those looking for a capable ride that can navigate narrow city streets and off-road trails with the same ease, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the 2018 Toyota CH-R are popular choices. While both have strengths, the Eclipse Cross is the better buy when it comes to space, power, and warranty provisions.
Both the Eclipse Cross and the CH-R have seating for five people, but that doesn’t mean they have the same interior space. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes with 95 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the CH-R only has 84 cubic feet. You get more legroom, headroom, and shoulder room when you choose the Mitsubishi over the Toyota. The Eclipse Cross also has 48.9 cubic feet of maximum luggage volume, while the Toyota CH-R has just 36.4 cubic feet.
The Eclipse Cross has a standard 1.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that is paired with a continuously variable transmission with a special eight-speed Sport Mode system. This powertrain generates 152 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, providing impressive response and acceleration. The C-HR, alternatively, has a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder that’s paired with a continuously variable transmission. The Toyota only gets 144 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque.
For those who want a little added peace of mind, the Mitsubishi also offers a better warranty. When you select the Toyota CH-R, you get a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, however, has a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and an impressive 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. There’s also standard roadside assistance when you choose the Eclipse Cross, a provision which the CH-R fails to offer.
