2010 Mitsubishi ASX.jpg

Mitsubishi RVR (GA3W/GA4W). 2010 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, F/A, 1560 cm³ diesel, 1798 cm³ petrol (I4 OHC), 1590, 1798, 1998 cm³ petrol, 1798 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC). Mitsubishi revived the RVR badge on a small, and somewhat bland (inside and out) crossover SUV. Outlander platform, with same 2,670 mm wheelbase, but considerably shorter and narrower. Company emphasized fuel economy on launch, trying to link its name to good mileage rather than large vehicles. Good use of space, despite relatively high sill at rear. Good ride, with little body roll despite vehicle’s height. Noisy diesel, though it was the first to have variable valve timing for a passenger vehicle. Exported as ASX and Outlander Sport. Small 1·6 diesel engine sourced from Peugeot.
