Is the Mitsubishi RVR a Good Crossover SUV?

It’s time to get to know your new favorite subcompact crossover SUV. The Mitsubishi RVR has been going strong since 2010 when the name was re-launched after a brief time out of production through the early 2000s. The third generation of the vehicle continues with the 2020 Mitsubishi RVR charging bravely into a new decade. Read on to learn more about this crossover SUV. 

How Big is the Mitsubishi RVR? 

The Mitsubishi RVR is the smallest SUV currently made by Mitsubishi. It’s a subcompact crossover SUV and uses the same seating configuration as a sedan. There are two captain’s chairs in the front row and a bench in the back that can fit three people for a total of five seats.

What Kind of Engine Does the Mitsubishi RVR Have? 

Open up the Mitsubishi RVR and you’ll find one of two different engines inside. Most trim levels include the base 2.0L Inline-4 Cylinder engine. This setup comes with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and 148 horsepower. Torque from this engine reaches 145 lb-ft. There is a larger engine option on higher trim levels, however. This second engine is larger by .4 liters but it has the same transmission and cylinder count. Its maximum horsepower is 168 and its maximum torque is 167 lb-ft.  

How Much Will My Trade-In Be Worth?

Does the Mitsubishi RVR Have All-wheel Drive? 

One big difference between Mitsubishi and other automakers is that they prefer the term All-Wheel Control (AWC). AWC defaults to delivering torque to the front wheels but is intelligent enough to start applying torque in different ways in response to changes in road conditions. This gives the Mitsubishi RVR a charming amount of off-road potential.  

Does the Mitsubishi RVR Have Smartphone Connectivity? 

Both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® are available on the Mitsubishi RVR and pair with an 8-inch (20.32 cm) touchscreen that gives you control over your music and other apps while driving. That’s a fantastic feature, but there’s a lot more to the RVR than just that! Explore the RVR today at Red Deer Mitsubishi!
