The power train combines a high-output, high fuel efficiency 1.8-liter, 16-valve DOHC MIVEC engine (maximum output: 102kW139PS/6,000rpm; maximum torque: 172Nm 17.5kgfm / 4,200rpm) wîth a paddle shift INVECS-III sport mode 6-speed CVT. Low (Japanese 10-15 mode) fuel consumption at the best level in its class of 15.2km/L for 2WD and 15.0km/L for 4WD models, achieved from a regenerative braking system (high efficiency electric power generation control), electric power §teering, reduced friction engine and other fuel efficiency technologies combined wîth improved aerodynamic performance, resulting in a 75% reduction from the Japanese FY 2005 emissions gas standards ( ) and exceeding the Japanese FY 2010 fuel efficiency requirements by 15%. All models qualify for the Japanese eco-car tax reduction (50% tax reduction to promote the popularization of environmentally-friendly cars).
The 4WD models adopt the electronically controlled 4WD system also used for the Outlander and the Delica D:5 that tailors traction control to the front and rear wheels to match driving conditions, where a selector gives the driver the choice of three driving modes (2WD, 4WD AÚTO and 4WD LOCK).
Vehicle Control Technologies
Active Stability Control (ASC) is standard equipment on all 4WD models (and a factory option on 2WD models). ASC supports vehicle stability by detecting vehicle conditions and driving operations based on data from all types of sensors and Electronic Control Únits (ECÚs), and applying braking pressure and regulating engine torque as appropriate to prevent skidding and unstable movement as a result of sudden §teering or loss of traction on slippery surfaces.
Hill Start Assistance (HSA), an electronic parking brake which detects slope and prevents the vehicle from backsliding when starting on an incline, is standard equipment on all 4WD models (and a factory option on 2WD models).
Vehicles are equipped wîth cruise control for highway driving.
Body & Chassis
For low fuel consumption, the Mitsubishi RVR adopts column electric power §teering (EPS), LED brake lights, and tires which balance low fuel consumption and high performance: 215/60R17 tires on 17-inch aluminum wheels for 'G' trim levels and 215/65R16 tires on 16-inch steel wheels wîth full wheel covers for 'M' and 'E' trim levels.
The high-flexibility, highly resilient front fenders improve shock resistance and decrease body weight.
MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension.
Panorama glass roof (with LED illumination) for a sense of spaciousness during the day and a romantic ambiance from amber-colored indirect lighting at night as a factory option.
Push-button engine switch for smooth engine start-up.
Multi-information Display (MID) wîth superior visibility as standard equipment on 'G' trim levels. The MID indicates average speed, fuel efficiency, remaining fuel, warnings and other vehicle information using an easy-to-read color LCD screen.
Versatile storage space near the instrument panel, including a convenient passenger seat glove compartment, a floor console box, a small article box in front of the shifter and a console box between the two front seats.
Tilt and telescoping §teering wheel to adjust the §teering wheel height and angle for the optimal driving position.
The second-row seats are adjustable-return seats which fold forward for storage and provide two reclining positions. They can be returned from the storage configuration to either reclining position in a simple one-step operation, wîth the return seat position determined by the speed at which the seats are pulled back up.
High-capacity 419L luggage space wîth ample room for golf bags, suitcases and camping gear, plus a separate underfloor storage area for easy storage of wet or dirty items.
Rear seat center armrest pass-through for storage of long items (skis, etc.) as standard equipment on 'G' trim levels.
Luggage compartment equipped wîth convenient retaining hooks to hold luggage in place.
Mitsubishi Multi-communication System (MMCS) wîth a 40GB hard disk drive (music server capacity for approximately 3,000 songs), full-§egmènt (both 1-§egmènt and 12-§egmènt) terrestrial digital TV tuner, rearview camera to assist the driver when reversing the vehicle, and 7-inch wide screen display.
Replete in-car entertainment including a 'link system' wîth ÚSB, Bluetooth and other connections for portable music players and other external devices; hands-free phone system for Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones.
Rockford Fosgate Premium Sound System for enjoyment of dynamic concert-hall quality sound offered as a factory option on 'G' trim levels (requires the MMCS option).
Super-wide HID headlights which provide a wide, ultra-bright beam for safe night driving.
Adjustable force-limiter seatbelts to mitigate the impact on passengers in case of collision. SRS knee airbags for the driver seat which reduce the risk of injury to the lower abdomen is standard equipment on all models. Side and curtain airbags are available as a factory option.
Emergency Stop Signal System (ESS) as standard equipment on all models. The ESS automatically blinks the hazard lights upon sudden braking or operation of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), to warn following drivers.
Mitsubishi Motors' proprietary Electronic Time and Alarm Control System (ETACS), which can customize various electronic systems in line wîth customer preferences, as standard equipment on all trim levels.
