THE FIRST IMAGES and details of Mitsubishi's upcoming compact SUV have been revealed today ahead of its 2010 debut when it will launch as the Mitsubishi RVR.
Measuring 4.3 metres long, the new RVR is around 365mm shorter than the Outlander SUV, recently updated with the same Lancer-inspired face.
The compact RVR will be powered by a new 1.8 litre MIVEC petrol engine. No word has been given on whether a diesel engine will join the range.
The new RVR will be the third Mitsubishi to wear the name, the previous two models being built between 1991 and 2002.
Mitsubishi is keeping its cards close to its chest on the RVR, with specific technical, pricing and launch details still to come.
