2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Vs 2020 Mazda CX-5 in Truro, Nova Scotia

The evolution of the Canadian auto industry can be tied back to two basic anomalies. The past three years have seen a surge in new car sales as the market has grown, and automotive consumers' appetite for vehicles with flashy new technology has increased. The second point to consider is the degree to which the traditional passenger vehicle has played a limited role in consumers' lives. Passenger vehicles once accounted for more than half of all new vehicle sales, and as of 2018, passenger vehicles have only taken less than 30% of market share. The demand for passenger vehicles like sedans is collapsing, so if these segments are shrinking, where are automotive consumers filling the gaps? Five of Canada's most popular vehicle segments fall within the crossover/SUV side.

Automotive consumers from Colchester County, Nova Scotia, Hants County, Nova Scotia, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, and Cumberland County, Nova Scotia are a part of the 38 percent increase in popularity of the crossover/SUV segments. There are so many great vehicles to choose from as automotive manufacturers funnel billions of dollars to design and engineer these vehicles. Two such vehicles include the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and the 2020 Mazda CX-5. Both vehicles offer great features and derive inspiration from Japanese engineering. Though they both excel in their respective approaches, one provides a more complete package. At Truro Mitsubishi, we are proud to offer a fantastic selection of 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in Truro, Nova Scotia, with its legendary AWC AWD system.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and CX-5 both offer a host of great features that make your driving experience fun and exciting. The Eclipse Cross is packed with a slew of standard features that would make the CX-5 and others in the segment jealous. The Eclipse Cross seats five passengers comfortably as both rows provide exceptional head, leg, and shoulder room. The seats are extremely comfortable, and it features soft-touch materials where it matters most. When shopping in this class, many consumers will look at how much stuff can be packed into the rear of the vehicle. The total capacity for the Eclipse Cross is 640 litres and 1385 litres with the seats folded down, which is plenty when you need to carry extra cargo. Even though the CX-5 is in a larger class, it doesn't provide that much more space. The Eclipse Cross leaps ahead with its intuitive and easy to use infotainment system with its unique touchpad that helps the driver navigate through the many options. The CX-5 uses a rotary dial that can be, at times, frustrating and hard to operate. Both crossovers also feature standard HD radio, keyless entry, backup camera and an antitheft system.


Both vehicles take a different approach to delivering power to the road. The Mitsubishi's fuel-efficient and fun to drive turbocharged 4-cylinder offers great torque to put you back in your seat. Paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Eclipse Cross provides a smooth and stress-free drive. The CX-5 offers three engine options, a standard 2.5-litre 4-cylinder, a 2.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder, and a 2.2-litre turbo diesel. All these engines provide lower fuel economy numbers than the Eclipse Cross, and both turbocharged engines add a higher price tag as well. Also, the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse towing capacity is rated at 1500 hundred pounds, which allows you to tow what you need.


Both vehicles offer unique design language; however, the Eclipse Cross has a more edgy style and paired with an aggressive front end, it wins this battle. The CX-5 does have some great character lines but blends in with the rest of the segment. The Eclipse Cross also features a class-exclusive split rear window that allows for greater visibility and a cool look. While we're at the rear of each vehicle, the Eclipse cross, with its more muscular design, sets itself apart from the CX-5, which has a typical crossover perspective.

At Truro Mitsubishi, we are proud to offer the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse for sale. With all these great features, the Eclipse Cross has so much to offer automotive consumers. We invite you to visit us online or in-store and experience what others have been raving about.
