Head-turning bronze color. Simple climate controls, 5-speed automatic, comfortable heated seats, usable back seat, big trunk.

Dislikes

No stick option with a sport package (what about the Eclipse 6-speed?). Numb steering, intrusive, non-retractable navigation screen hard to read in sunlight. Visor/roof uncomfortable close to driver’s head. Poor turning radius. “Me too” exterior design.

Verdict

Mitsubishi takes a knife to a gunfight in this segment. Drives clumsily as if it were AWD, but its not. Can’t compete with Mazda Speed 6, Acura TL Type S, Nissan Altima, or even Toyota Camry hybrid.
