You’re after: an SUV that is big enough, but you don’t want it too small either. Boot space is important, but you don’t want to be driving around in something as big as a Kluger. Small SUVs don’t cut it though - there’s just not enough space for a growing family.
Enter the SUVs now coming out which are somewhere between small and mid-sized. They have bigger boot space, more interior space, but they aren’t quite a mid-sized SUV. This week I tested the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross which is exactly this size: in between a small and a mid sized SUV.
It looks good, parks easily because it’s not as big as other SUVs
Driving is good, as in, it gets the job done and you can drive safely from A to B without any concerns, but it’s not spectacular. I can feel the tug of the steering wheel when I’m doing three-point turns, it’s not as light as it should be. I can hear the engine loudly when I take off, so it’s not as quiet as it could be.
Still, it feels solid and I feel confident. It looks good, parks easily because it’s not as big as other SUVs and has Apple Carplay/Android Auto so you can hook into your phone apps from the multimedia system, plus it’s super practical.
