Dare to Compare – 2018 Eclipse Cross vs. Toyota C-HR
As crossover SUVs become increasingly popular, the small SUV segment becomes increasingly competitive. The all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross arrived in 2018, and it came to compete. One of its top competitors in the Toyota C-HR, a sporty subcompact SUV, so to help you decide which small SUV is right for you, here’s a brief comparison guide between these two sophisticated crossovers.
Performance & Capability
The 2018 Eclipse Cross, on the one hand, comes equipped with a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 152 horsepower, 184 lb-ft of torque, and up to 31 mpg on the highway.* On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota C-HR comes equipped with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 144 horsepower, 139 lb-ft of torque, and the same efficiency as the Eclipse Cross.**
While the Eclipse Cross offers both FWD and AWD, the C-HR only offers FWD.
Both vehicles offer seating for up to five passengers. In terms of cargo capacity, the Eclipse Cross is slightly roomier: it offers 22.6 cubic feet of rear cargo room and up to 48.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. The C-HR falls short of such cargo capacity, offering just 19 cubic feet of rear cargo room and a maximum cargo capacity of 36.4 cubic feet.
So, if you are looking for a vehicle that delivers greater power for the same efficiency, a possibility of all-wheel drive, and more interior space, the 2018 Eclipse Cross holds the upper hand on the Toyota C-HR. Come and test-drive this winning combination at Tom Hodges Mitsubishi.
