Fast forward to present day and Vern Eide Mitsubishi is proud to announce the 2022 Eclipse Cross has earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests new vehicles in crash scenarios such as front, rollover, and side collisions. The NHTSA will then assign scores for how well a vehicle performed in each test. Ultimately, these safety ratings are meant to help car shoppers make an informed decision when buying a vehicle.

And the accolades don’t stop there! In addition to its NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Score, it was recently reported the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has won AutoPacific’s 2021 Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA) in the compact crossover SUV category.
