However, it’s not just drivers who’ve noticed how noteworthy the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is. The esteemed members of the Automotive Researchers’ & Journalists’ Conference of Japan have noticed, too. That’s why they recently named the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as the 2019 RJC Car of the Year.

When choosing the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross as this year’s award winner, the selection committee said, “Not only is the [Mitsubishi] Eclipse Cross a stylish fusion of a sharp coupe and a compact SUV, but it has high rough road performance and well-balanced dynamics, due to [the] Mitsubishi [brand's] unique Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) four-wheel drive system. Brisk driving performance is thanks to the combination of the newly developed 1.5L direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine and CVT with an 8-speed manual override."

After learning that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross won such a prestigious award, Mitsubishi issued the following statement, “We are delighted to win the 2019 RJC Car of the Year award. Mitsubishi Motors is committed to putting the customer first, which is inspired by our corporate philosophy – ‘create a vibrant society by realizing the potential of mobility.’''
