2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Mitsubishi Eclipse

  • Front seats are comfortable, sufficiently bolstered for mildly spirited driving and adequately cushioned for a day-long, interstate drive from California's southern-most region up through its lush Central Valley to the state capital without numbing occupants' posteriors.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • The dash is a cabin-spanning, single piece of pleasantly finished plastic that invites optimism about reduced buzzes, squeaks and rattles as the car puts on miles and years.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • Several exterior details make this car stand out, such as the "chrome-under-glass" rear spoiler ... , chrome-laced clear-lens covered head and taillamps, LED brake lights and shapely exterior door handles.

    - Road & Track
  • It shines in more normal everyday spirited driving, the kind you would do on the way to work, running errands and taking weekend trips on highways or winding two-lanes; track days are out.

    - Road & Track
  • Adding to the four-banger's fun level, the clutch engages so gracefully that you have to try pretty hard to stall the car from a standstill, or to accomplish a jerky shift. The shift lever moves crisply, which is an achievement in a front-drive car because the shift linkage goes through awkward angles.

    - USA Today
  • Remarkable room between the door panel and the center stack of controls shames some full-size machines. That kind of side-to-side space is a luxury and belies the car's overall tight confines.

What reviewers liked least about the Mitsubishi Eclipse

  • The Eclipse also burns more Exxon and Arco. After 300 miles our fuel card reported 15 mpg.

    - Car and Driver
  • The Eclipse lacks a telescoping steering column, and the wheel lurks close to the dash and pedals. Drivers long of inseam will sit with their knees splayed, brushing the back of the wheel, knock-knocking the center console.

    - Car and Driver
  • The liftover height, while not much higher than that of the average trunk, presents a fairly thick rear bulkhead, requiring a back-straining lean to heft items up, over and into the cargo area.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • I'm no physics major, but all that weight - distributed 61 percent front/39 percent rear - along with front-wheel drive, soft springs, too much body roll and all-season tires (that start squealing in protest long before they should) do not a sports car make.

    - Road & Track
  • The back seat is barely there. Even average-height riders will sit tall enough to bump the hatchback glass.

Best one-liner about the Mitsubishi Eclipse

  • Fewer straight lines and sharp angles, more curves and better proportions combine to turn heads more with a smile than with a frown.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • Eclipse is a rare machine, as satisfying to drive as its stunning styling suggests.
