How They Compare: The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross & Toyota Rav4

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comes standard with more than enough power to take you to all your destinations here in the Reading area. But this Mitsubishi SUV also has been engineered to deliver fantastic fuel-efficiency. The EPA estimates this Mitsubishi to achieve up to 26 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. The Toyota RAV4, meanwhile, gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

With the available red diamond color, being noticed is just standard.

Style & Design

Style is personal, we know that. And still, we can appreciate the modern and sleek appeal of the Toyota RAV4. But we also love the Mitubishi Eclipse Cross for its uncommon, bold style. This Mitsubishi crossover SUV boasts some new styling changes for the 2019 model year, too, including gloss black window switch panels on LE models, and new accessory roof rails on all models. But this Mitsubishi also comes standard with many carryover features that differentiate it from the competition. Features like color-keyed front and rear bumpers and door handles add aesthetic appeal. Features like LED daytime running lamps and fog lights, and a roof spoiler, add a touch more personality.

With spacious rear seating and available heated rear seats, long trips just got more comfortable.

Practicality & Space

The Toyota RAV4 boasts a more traditional two-box style that provides exemplary interior space for cargo and passengers. The Eclipse Cross might be more fun & funky in its design treatment, but it's also quite practical, thanks to plenty of passenger space and a large cargo area that folds down for extra space.

Available heated and leather front and rear seating elevates the driving experience.

Technology & Multimedia

Thanks to a large 7-inch touchscreen and available features like Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is ready to help you take on the day with your best tunes, apps, and other multimedia enrichment. The Toyota RAV4 offers Entune smartphone pairing and touchscreen infotainment, too, but its touchscreen is smaller, and it doesn't come with either Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™ integration.

Spacious cargo area for your weekend outings in the 2019 Eclipse Cross.

Safety & Stability

Looking for an SUV that's safe? The Toyota RAV4 boats Toyota Safety Sense-P, or TSS-P. You've probably heard about that. But you may not know that the more humbly advertised Eclipse Cross also offers many of the same safety technologies as the RAV4, like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring, to name a few features. Plus, just like the RAV4, the Eclipse Cross can be equipped with AWD for an even more capable ride here in Reading, no matter the weather or the road conditions.
