The new MitsubishiEclipse Cross and the 2020 Hyundai Tucson are two of the top contenders in the small SUV world, but which model comes out on top? If you’re in the market for a new SUV, you’ll want to keep reading before you make your decision.
Though both the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the Hyundai Tucson have sufficient power to get you to work and the grocery store, one SUV pulls ahead when it comes to performance. The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross features a 4-cylinder turbocharged 1.5-liter direct-injection engine standard across all trims. The 2020 Hyundai Tucson offers a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter direct-injection engine standard in addition to an available 2.4-liter engine only available on pricier trim levels. In terms of torque, the Eclipse Cross outperforms both engines. The Eclipse Cross delivers 184 lb-ft of torque, which is higher than the Tucson’s maximum 175 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, with the 1.5-liter turbo engine, the Eclipse Cross can go from 0-60 mph in over a second faster than the Tucson can manage.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and Hyundai Tucson both include a number of convenience features intended to make your life easier. Both SUVs feature safety features that make driving less stressful, including lane departure alerts, rear cameras, and automatic braking. Both vehicles also offer Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility as well as SiriusXM® radio services and Bluetooth® technologies.
However, the similarities end there. The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers a number of convenience features standard that are only found on more expensive trim levels of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson, including one-touch power up/down windows and heated external mirrors. Additionally, the Eclipse Cross offers a heads-up display that allows you to glean vital information about your drive without taking your eyes off the road. A heads-up display is nowhere to be found on the Tucson.
