PATENT APPLICATIONS, leaked promotional images and errant brochures - it seems there's more than a few holes in the auto industry's fence. This time, it's the previously unseen interior of the upcoming 2010 Mitsubishi RVR (or is it ASX?)
Almost an evolution of the Outlander's, the dashboard of the RVR features a raised, forward-thrust centre stack, with the centre air vents set above the infotainment section rather than off to either side.
While this shot of the interior offers a new glimpse at the RVR's styling, Mitsubishi Motors Australia has yet to reveal Australian dates or pricing for the new model - or whether it will be known by the European 'ASX' or Japanese 'RVR' moniker.
In Japan, the RVR is powered by a 1.8 litre petrol engine, paired with Mitsubishiâ€™s CVT automatic transmission.
Local models are likely to be offered with Mitsubishiâ€™s larger 2.0 litre unit and the new 1.8 litre turbo-diesel.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia is expected to announce details for the new crossoverâ€™s local debut in the coming weeks.
