Features of the New 2017 Mitsubishi RVR //
MANEUVER IT YOUR WAY
Let the new RVR take you to the next level. Now featuring a dynamic shield front grill for a more powerful look, the RVR is not only the perfect size for maneuvering city streets but easy to handle and environmentally friendly. All this in a sleek, dynamic design package. Now that's a smart car.
Performance // MORE FUN AHEAD
Take on the road, exactly the way you want to. The new RVR will respond to any corner, curves, or climate. It's the perfect compact crossover with smooth and nimble moves that will please any driver. Here's your invitation - let the new excitement on wheels roll into your life today.
ALL WHEEL CONTROL
Mitsubishi's revolutionary electronically controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) system continually monitors the road and intelligently transfers power and braking to the wheels with the most traction to improve handing and performance—without drastically reducing efficiency. So whether you're driving on snow or gravel, or simply demand topline performance in tight corners, you can rely on All-Wheel-Control to help keep you on track.
POWERFUL MIVEC ENGINES
RVR's 2.0-liter powerhouse uses a lightweight aluminum block for optimum performance as it puts out 110kW (150PS) to take control of city streets and open highways alike. MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system) technology provides optimal valve timing at both low and high rev ranges, to give the most of every curve and straightaway out there.
TWO SMART TRANSMISSIONS
Choose between the efficient, hands-on 5-speed manual transmission, standard on ES 2.0L, or Mitsubishi's next-gen CVT (continuously variable transmission), which gives you better acceleration, MPG and responsiveness over traditional CVTs.
INVECS-III CVT WITH 6-STEP SPORTS MODE
The 2.0-liter engine is teamed with the new INVECS-III (Intelligent & Innovative Vehicle Electronic Control System) CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) featuring Sports Mode, ideally tuned to deliver effortless acceleration from any speed. In addition, the INVECS-III CVT provides improved fuel efficiency, while Sports Mode offers all the sporty control of manual shifting without the hassle of a clutch.
PADDLE SHIFTERS & CRUISE CONTROL
Mounted within easy reach, the paddle shifters allow you to enjoy sporty control while keeping both hands safely on the wheel. Shifting is quick and easy, with up- and down-shifts requiring just a simple press once RVR is in 'D' mode. For added convenience, the current gear position is clearly displayed on the multi-information display. Paddle shifters can also be equipped with cruise control, for greater performance on the road.
RVR features MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspensions for smooth handling over rough roads. Shock absorbers and stabilizers are tuned for sporty, comfortable performance.
Interior // STEP INSIDE OUR OFFICE.
When it comes to the interior of the 2017 RVR, we didn't waste an inch of space. With loads of legroom, the RVR seats five comfortably and when you do need more room for those unexpected excursions, the 60/40 split fold rear seats will do the trick. With available leather seats and the leather wrapped steering wheel with piano black accents, you'll get a touch of sophistication to go along with the RVR's rugged charm. And with our available 710-watt Rockford Fosgate® "Punch" Audio System with 9 speakers including a 10" subwoofer, driving the RVR will feel like music to your ears. That's 'cause it is.
Safety // READY FOR ANYTHING
What you can't see, can hurt you. To take more of the road out of the shadows, RVR features Super Wide Range HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps. When activated, the headlamp clusters send out broader beams of light, illuminating a much wider section of the road ahead.
So that you and your passengers can be safer in the event of a collision, RVR is equipped with a 7-airbag system to provide increased safety to every seat. The front seats are protected by front airbags, plus an additional knee airbag for the driver to help protect the legs in a forward collision. In a side collision, occupants in both rows are protected by curtain airbags extending along the sides.
ACTIVE STABILITY CONTROL (ASC)/STABILITY CONTROL FUNCTION
ASC uses onboard sensors to analyze the vehicle's motion and identify lateral wheel slippage. By governing engine output and controlling braking to the appropriate wheels, ASC helps maintain stability and traction control.
SMART DESIGN, STUNNING LOOKS
The 2017 Mitsubishi RVR gives you the control to choose any type of driving, from responsive city commuting to the thrill of spirited motoring.
