THE dis­tinc­tive Eclipse Cross is Mit­subishi’s all-new take on a small fam­ily SUV. We’ve found the op­tional CVT au­to­matic box does the new 1.5-litre turbo petrol en­gine no favours, but if you stick with a man­ual and front-wheel drive the Eclipse Cross is a worth­while ri­val to the Peu­geot 3008 and SEAT Ateca.

A forth­com­ing 2.2-litre diesel ver­sion should add even more ap­peal to what is al­ready a ca­pa­ble mo­tor­way cruiser, while four-wheel drive is an op­tion.

Price range: £21,275-£29,750 Our pick: Eclipse Cross 3 (£22,575) En­gine: 1.5-litre 4cyl petrol, 161bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 124mph Econ­omy: 42.8mpg CO2: 151g/km
