There are two stories about Mitsubishi RVR. This vehicle was an MPV during its first production. After the cut of production in 2002, the RVR is back in the market since 2010. However, now it has a different role. It is a compact recreational crossover, but its popularity is growing. Now, we will see a new model as 2018 Mitsubishi RVR. The second life of the vehicle started without big optimism. However, buyers see an economical SUV that performs well. Also, its price is more affordable than other companies are offering, so it is not strange why this SUV is in demand.
2018 Mitsubishi RVR changes
For 2018 Mitsubishi RVR designers are not preparing big changes. Nevertheless, there are some updates and additions to drivers that love technology. In cooperation with Google, Mitsubishi is developing better connectivity for Androids. Also, infotainment system adds audio features and navigation for higher trims. Seats are comfortable, although Japanese carmaker is not using premium materials. Nevertheless, there is enough room for legs and head, as well as for the cargo at the back of the SUV. The 2018 RVR will keep its dimensions as before. Revisit of front fascia and back of the crossover could bring slight tuning.
2018 Mitsubishi RVR specs
The 2018 Mitsubishi RVR will use a 2.2-l 4-cylinder drivetrain as the main unit. Another possibility is a 1.6-l displacement. However, this compact SUV is going to produce a modest amount of power. But, that means better numbers on mileage. Nevertheless, fans are listening carefully rumors about plug-in hybrid. In 2015 chiefs announced it for some other models, and RVR could be the first crossover to exploit it in Mitsubishi family. Well, current petrol unit is going to send power through 6-speed automatic transmission, or 5-speed manual. Since 2010 and new arrival, we could see 6-speed manual and CVT as well on this SUV.

With the cost of under $20,000, this is one of the most attractive and the most affordable crossovers. But, exact price and other details are coming soon. For example, Ford Escape costs a couple of thousands more. The 2018 Mitsubishi RVR should arrive late in 2017. Enthusiasts would like to see only the premiere, while production model is coming into dealerships in 2018.
