Future of the RVR crossover by Mitsubishi was questionable. However, company is giving another shot to its vehicle. It will arrive as 2018 Mitsubishi RVR. This season, Japanese carmaker prepared unique interior and powerful engine. Nevertheless, it is going to be efficient. On the other hand, stylish interior makes RVR very elegant. Outside, no radical changes are coming. So, 2018 year model is only refreshed comparing to its predecessors. Fans hope for this vehicle not to fail, since Mitsubishi is looking to replace entire SUV lineup in upcoming years. According to rumors, new models are on the way, with new names, styling and engines.
2018 Mitsubishi RVR engine
Under the hood of the 2018 Mitsubishi RVR is a 2.2-liter V-6 diesel engine, with turbo- compressor. This drivetrain can make 180 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. Standard petrol unit is not in plans at this moment. However, we are sure that company will launch this kind of crossover, with better output on power, but slightly less torque. Both manual and automatic transmissions are forwarding power from engine to wheels. New RVR uses FWD system by default, while all-wheel drive comes optionally. We still don’t know what kind of braking system is going to be on the wheels. Also, suspension will get boost to provide better performance.
2018 Mitsubishi RVR design
If we have to pick where 2018 Mitsubishi RVR is more attractive, decision would be easy – inside. Packed with many hi-tech features, cabin also offers great deal of comfort. First of all, spacing between rows is enough for taller passengers. Then, fine leather covers seats, making them even more pleasurable. However, exterior is not boring. With new grille and bumper, it could attract younger buyers. But, Mitsubishi must improve its design a lot if they want to compete on suck demanding market. They are still far behind leaders in the class.
