For 2021, the Mitsubishi RVR enters its second decade on the market in Canada, making it one of the oldest nameplates in the subcompact crossover segment. Mitsu restyled the RVR last year and added some new tech features.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
There are no notable changes to the RVR for 2021.
Mitsubishi offers the RVR in ES, SE, SEL, LE, and GT trim levels. A 2.0L four-cylinder engine powers all ES models and the SE FWD trim. SE AWD and the rest of the range use a 2.4L engine and come standard with AWD. A continuously variable automatic transmission is included in all trims.
The 2021 Mitsubishi RVR ES comes wearing 16-inch steel wheels with covers, auto on/off LED headlights, heated/power-adjustable side mirrors, and LED taillights. Inside, you get heated front seats, map lights, automatic A/C, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, a four-speaker stereo, and satellite radio.
SE adds 16-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift lever, and a six-speaker sound system.
SEL brings 18-inch wheels, suede seats, and passive keyless entry.
LE adds a heated steering wheel with red stitching, black painted wheels, and rain-sensing wipers.
Finally, GT gains automatic high beams, power-folding mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, a power driver’s seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 10-speaker stereo.
Mitsubishi’s fuel consumption estimates for the RVR are 9.7/7.8 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.0L engine and FWD, 10.1/8.2 L/100 km for 2.0L/AWD models, and 10.3/8.3 L/100 km for 2.4L/AWD models.
