During its press conference at the 2009 LA Auto Show yesterday, Mitsubishi showed renderings of its upcoming compact crossover based of the Concept cX. Mitsubishi said that the small crossover will be known as the RVR in Japan and will hit local markets there in spring 2010.
“The RVR will be fitted with an all-new 1.8L MIVEC petrol engine, and will be approximately 4.3 meters in length, featuring high fuel efficiency via its lightweight compact body,” Mitsubishi said. “With the RVR, MMC expands its crossover lineup, which already includes the full-size Pajero, and the mid-size Outlander.”
This new compact crossover will be released globally, including North America, Europe, and Asian regions including China. The model may get a different name for each region.
