Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi is planning to make things even more interesting in SUV market. Not only that they are planning the release of 2017 Mitsubishi RVR, but also it could happen in US, the most demanding market. Also, the competition there is very, very tough, so this is a big step for manufacturer. Sport utility vehicle RVR is not so famous, so Mitsubishi must make exceptional offer if they want to make breakthrough in North American territories. It is going to be quite interesting to see how RVR will take transformation from multi-purpose vehicle to crossover, where it belongs from 2010.
2017 Mitsubishi RVR engine
The most important part of vehicle that wants to have success in US market is powerplant. With 2.2-l turbo-diesel unit installed in 2017 Mitsubishi RVR, company can keep the pace with competition. This engine is ready to produce 180 horses and about 200 lb-ft of torque. What makes difference in Mitsubishi favor is already prepared hybrid. Models which will use this type of drivetrain, are getting power from 1.1-l gasoline unit paired with electric motor. Big news could come with 2017 RVR, since this crossover could use 1.6-l petrol engine, supported with two electric motors. However, engineers don’t pay attention to power source, but also driving quality, and we have heard that handling and acceleration are more than decent for this mid-size crossovers.
2017 Mitsubishi RVR design
Performance might be the most important, but 2017 Mitsubishi RVR must lure buyers with its styling. Many changes are prepared to current version, and redesign must happen if company wants to be noticed in large markets. Lift gate, windows and vipers are very stylish. Grille is bold, which makes front of the crossover very attractive with sharp LED lights. Side and rear parts are also modern and elegant, and highlights are 18-inch wheels with specially designed tires. Safe and comfortable interior is in par with other vehicles which are longer on the market.

Mid-size crossover priced slightly more than $20,000 must be pretty attractive. It should be one of the advantages for 2017 Mitsubishi RVR. However, it takes much more to be recognized, but company prepared higher trims. Which are going to cost closer to $30,000.
