Quick test: Mitsubishi RVR 2020
In addition to coordinating its look with the rest of its range of vehicles, Mitsubishi has injected a few additional horses under the hood of its RVR utility vehicle.
S e being between the Eclipse Cross and Outlander, this compact SUV not suffer too much from the continuously variable transmission (CVT) insofar as it learns to assay its acceleration.
The 168 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque provide enough power so you don’t get bored. In addition, this SUV allows you to choose between three traction modes, which several AWD models do not allow.
As for fuel consumption, the current climate and the short journeys made had the effect of giving a somewhat disappointing result. In milder conditions and on longer journeys, it is possible to do better. Mitsubishi announces fuel consumption ratings of 10.1 l / 100 km in the city, 8.2 l / 100 km on the road or 9.2 l / 100 km combined with the four-wheel drive model. Traction promises to consume 9.7 l / 100 km in the city, 7.8 l / 100 km on the road or 8.8 l / 100 km combined.
On the other hand, if the design on the outside has been renewed, the same could not be said of that of the interior, which always seems somewhat out of date.
However, the RVR offers a lot of space for its occupants even in the back.
