Just wanted to share this video review of the Eclipse Cross. The guys over at TFLnow seem to think that Mitsubishi has packaged some incredible value in their latest offering.

There isn't a whole lot of steering feel, but that's fine so long as you can get a good sense of what the front wheels are doing. You can definitely tell he's not a fan of CVTs. :D It's really fine IMHO, but he doesn't like how long the rpm is held before it drops.
After driving around this week, I can kinda understand what he means. To me, after the car gets rolling and the rpm’s drop, that’s when I feel the turbo kick in and it kinda pulls a little. I am very happy with the performance this little guy gives me. I have had no trouble going around slower vehicles and it goes up hills without drama. For just a shade over 150 hp, I have to say it has some go to it. I have however noticed that it does not like crosswinds too much, I find myself putting in a little steering input to keep it straight. That’s just being nit picky though lol
I think the turbo really helps to make up for the traditional weaknesses that are found in CVT's. It was a really smart move by Mitsubishi to use one here. It's probably only a matter of time until we see all CVT's adopt Toyota's new launch gear.
