A small SUV with form and function.

Think of a small SUV as the fun-size version of a larger cargo and passenger utility vehicle—it packs the functions of an SUV into a more compact size and shape. If that combination sounds appealing, check out the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. The 2022 Eclipse Cross is a responsive, compact SUV ideally suited to modern life. Whether that means school runs and errands or a day of golf and brunch, this SUV's lively 1.5L engine and deceptively roomy interior make it a wise choice for urban driving. Useful cargo space and a higher driving position are put to good use here, and it's all wrapped up in an attractive exterior style refresh.

Driving in challenging conditions? No problem. For 2022, Mitsubishi packaged up its available all-wheel drive and integrated it with active stability control, antilock braking, and active yaw control. The Mitsubishi Super All-Wheel Control system is inspired by the manufacturer's rally car technology, designed to provide effortless traction when cornering and responsive handling no matter the conditions. For mountain- and snow-state drivers, this is a welcome addition.

3. Global location technology

Available for the first time in a production vehicle, What3words technology is integrated into the navigation system of the 2022 Eclipse Cross (SE and SEL trims). This global location identifier charts the planet and gives unique identity markers to each 10-foot square, and that unique address of three randomly generated words can pinpoint your exact location. It's helpful for your own route planning purposes, as well as for sharing with service providers, family members, or emergency vehicles. Identifying a destination not served by traditional road-based navigation can help journeys and meet-ups feel safer and yet more spontaneous than ever. Plus, What3words is available offline—lack of data or signal is no problem.

4. Touring package
