Mitsubishi RVR is a car produced by the Japanese automobile company Mitsubishi. RVRs were produced from 1991 to 2002 when production halted and resumed again in 2010. The models produced from 1991 to 2002 were four-door Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPV), while the models produced from 2010 onwards are 5-door compact SUVs.
In early 2010 Mitsubishi introduced the third generation RVR (also known as Mitsubishi ASX in other markets).
The RVR is fitted with the inline 4-cylinder 1.8L 4B10 MIVEC 16-valve DOHC petrol engine that produces 105 KW (141 HP) at 6000 rpm and the inline 4-cylinder 1.8L 4J10 MIVEC 16-valve SOHC petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 102 KW (137 HP) at 6000 rpm. These engines were mated with 5-speed or 6-speed transmission and CVT was an option. In some markets, there were more engine choices on offer with 2WD or AWD drivetrain. The engines have an average fuel consumption of 15.2 km/l.
Underneath the RVR is equipped with MacPherson strut front suspension and at the rear, it features a multi-link rear suspension. The wheelbase is 267 cm which gives the car stability and a comfortable interior.
The interior of the RVR is spacious and can comfortably accommodate 5 seated adults. The boot is 419 liters with an underfloor storage area suitable for wet and dirty items and more space can be gained by folding the rear seats flat. The dash features two round dials and between them, there is a 7-inch widescreen display, a leather-covered steering wheel that can be angle tilted and has audio controls, leather-wrapped gear knob, hands–free communication functionality, storage space near the instrument panel, passenger seat glove compartment, console box between the front seats, a Mitsubishi Multi-communication System (MMCS), a rearview camera, and a Rockford Fosgate audio system on some trims.
The exterior of the RVR features a front trapezoidal (fighter jet) grille that is standard in some Mitsubishi models, angled super-wide headlights that provide a wide, ultra-bright beam, rear bumper with marker lamps, LED brake lights for better visibility, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and robust front fenders.
For the JDM the 2010 RVR was offered in two trims, the M and G trim levels. G features more options.
The RVR features as standard the Emergency Stop Signal system (ESS), a system that blinks hazard lights in case of a sudden stop to alert oncoming drivers. The RVR is also fitted with adjustable force-limiter seatbelts, SRS knee airbags for the driver, and side and curtain airbags.
