2018 Mitsubishi RVR Review, Release Date

Having been in existence since 1991, Mitsubishi Motors has established as one of the lead car producers in the industry as compared to any other brand seen whatsoever since time immemorial. The Japanese Carmaker is set to launch an all-new 2018 Mitsubishi RVR following SUV sales growth and their advancements in technology today.

The release of this new model is coming after Mitsubishi set out to replace the entire SUV market with its flagship models. The automobile not only has a special interior, but it also comes with an extremely effective motor.

The exterior of the 2018 Mitsubishi RVR has gotten a revamp with improvements in aerodynamics, bumper and fused front grille will be some of the features to be added to the new model. The new 2018 Mitsubishi RVR looks more aggressive on the front because of the grille and bumper. It will be highlighted in sports chrome accenting which some say will appeal to younger buyers.

The new edition comes with 18-inch stand-alone metal tires, all season tires, a short-term belly fat that can be used in the event that one gets a piece, and the p225/55FR18 tires. There will be a choice of three colours namely Diamond White, Cool Silver, and Quartz brown. The SUV’s headlights are placed in an angular direction to the hood. And fog lights will be placed at two ends, just above the front bumper.

Tail lights will be divided into two parts, out of which one part will be at the tailgate. And another one will be on the body itself. Safety and luxury were the two main concerns that Mitsubishi used when redesigning this model. The 2018 Mitsubishi RVR comes equipped with a wide array of safety features some of which include;

· 7 SRS Airbag

· Lane Departure Assist

· Anti-Collision Alert

· Back Glass Defogger

· Rear View Camera


The interior of this new Mitsubishi RVR has shifted more towards offering drivers luxury with the introduction of a new steering wheel to provide better handling, a 6.1-inch sensor display and new audio systems will be available. Heated front seats and steering wheel, along with a touchscreen with navigation for the infotainment system will come standard. A privacy glass is included for enhancing occupant privacy and the rear view mirror has the function of auto darkening.
