It’s not every day that Mitsubishi introduced new models to North America, but it had to happen sooner or later. Technically, however, 2011 Mitsubishi RVR (called the Outlander Sport in the U.S. of A.) is a spin-off of the wagon current Outlander. In fact, both models use the same platform as the Lancer compact sedan. But with a reduction of 37 cm total length, Outlander, 2011 Mitsubishi RVR really looks radically different.
It’s also facing a different audience and seems destined to fulfill a different mission in life. Undoubtedly, the 2011 Mitsubishi RVR ‘s in proportion convincing, well, happy, unlike the board about the family, the values ??for the Outlander future. In fact, only the senior Outlander ‘s exterior mirrors are shared with the newcomers. From stem to stern, the design is more cohesive and works well with the gun in her mouth open style of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution claims was inspired by jet air intakes.
Naturally, the price must be paid to prune more than a foot 2011 Mitsubishi RVR ‘s length. The Outlander is available with a third row and higher RVR is not. Simple. Although the cargo was also reduced, it remains more than enough. If necessary, the storage space can be maximized by folding forward the rear seat split 60:40. The five-passenger seating arrangement, will suit most needs, despite knowing about the polka-dot-like finish of the seat base. For the drivers, a screen indicating fuel, outside temperature, odometer reading of vital signs and other separates the panel ‘s great gauge pod single. The impulse RVR ‘s engine is provided by the Lancer-based 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque.
This is not exactly earth-shattering compared to the Hyundai Tucson ‘s 175 horsepower or the Volkswagen Tiguan ‘ s 200 hp turbo, but should be enough to make the 2011 Mitsubishi RVR 1410 kg (about 180 kg lighter than the Outlander original) operate so excited. The 2.0’s 8.7 l/100 km city and 6.4 l/100 km on the road near the five-speed manual, it becomes an 2011 Mitsubishi RVR of more efficient vehicles in its category. The manual is mounted on the base level SE front-wheel-drive trim, while a continuously variable unit (CVT) is standard on AWD and GT SE top level The CVT paddle shifters, which includes the control of artificial constructed in six steps.
The idea is to imitate the sound and feel of an automatic transmission more familiar with the trappings of a traditional automatic, as the torque converter and energy-saving steal. The driver enabled optional all-wheel-drive is operated from a control button on the floor console. low-stress/cruising Under conditions, the vehicle remains in front-wheel-drive. When the tire slip is detected, an increase of 70 percent of engine torque’s can be directed to the rear wheels. However, when the situation calls for maximum traction of all four wheels, AWD can also be defined as a “lock ” position that maintains a torque split of 60:40. The $ 23,450 front-wheel-drive SE includes a good variety of standard features that appeal to hunters more business. The top pick for all-wheel drive GT ($ 30,000) adds climate control, start with a knob, rain-sensing wipers, upgraded seats and alloy wheels of 18 inches (alloy wheels 16 inch is the default).
