Sporting MPV, aimed at the youth market, with two doors on the passenger side and one on the driver’s. Based on a shortened Mitsubishi Chariot (N30) platform. Sports Gear models, including Super Sports Gear and Hyper Sports Gear, and Open Gear and Wild Gear, showed how outdoor lifestyle marketing had influenced RVR. Some models aped off-road cars, with roof rails and guards. Lancer Evolution engine used in Hyper Sports Gear model; Galant components also present. Largest 2·4 engine for US exports, where car was sold variously as Dodge or Plymouth Colt Vista, and Eagle Summit Wagon. Roomy, despite shortened platform, thanks to tall body, and good fuel economy; but noisy. Not directly replaced in North America, but segment later filled by Chrysler PT Cruiser.
