The Eclipse Cross needs more power and a planetary gear transmission! I built my own "Eclipse Cross" with a '06 GT.
I was at an auto show a few years ago. Talked to a Subaru public interest research rep about why the Crosstrek was doing well but not in their expected demographics (20's -30's). I explained that there is nothing exciting about a 150 HP SUV, it desperately needs some power upgrades.
This year, they added an upgraded engine option with about 35 more horsepower. It's not an STI but every little bit helps! I wish Mitsubishi did the same thing and added a 2.0 turbo or 2.4 NA option to the Eclipse Cross. That would get me into the dealership for sure.
