The Eclipse Cross managed to earn “Good” rating in all of the six crashworthiness evaluations of the IIHS. The vehicle’s front-crash prevention system was awarded a “Superior” rating when equipped. It also managed to carefully avoid possible crashes at 12 mph and 25 mph when it was equipped with this feature. 

The SEL trim of the SUV comes with LED headlights, which have been rated “Acceptable” by the IIHS. Although this works just fine, it could be improved. Had it a “Good” under this, the crossover SUV would have a Top Safety, which the highest rank that a vehicle can secure from the IIHS

Unfortunately, it does not compensate enough to increase the rating from “Acceptable” to “Good”.

It surpassed all of its crash tests with flying colors, undoubtedly making the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in Emmaus a significant choice for an efficient vehicle for you and your family. You can be positively assured of your safety and security as well as that of the passengers while driving around in this crossover SUV.
