Mitsubishi Canada today revealed an updated RVR compact crossover for the 2020 model year, which holds the line on price with a base sticker of $22,998.
A comprehensive mid-cycle refresh brings new front-end styling that apes the larger Eclipse Cross, and there are new LED taillights that span the width of the car.
Mitsubishi has also extended availability of its AWC all-wheel drive system to the base ES trim, and the SE AWC trim ditches a 2.0L engine for the 2.4L formerly reserved for higher trims. That leaves ES (FWD and AWD) and SE front-drive models using the smaller engine.
The RVR ES FWD is the only trim whose price carries over from 2019. All other RVR configurations see increases of between $500 and $1,000.
All RVR packages now come with an 8.0-inch infotainment screen to replace last year's 7.0-inch display, and SE FWD trim adds blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. A new SEL AWC trim replaces 2019's SE Limited and is presented as a high-value package that builds on SE AWC, adding new 18-inch wheels, artificial suede seat upholstery, passive keyless entry, paddle shifters, roof rails, LED headlights, fog lights and turn signals, a driver's knee airbag and the 2.4L engine.
Last year's Black Edition is now the Limited Edition AWC, which gains a red-stitched knee pad, a black headliner and a heated steering wheel.
The top-end GT AWC trim returns for 2020 with a new heated steering wheel, black headliner, and chrome beltline moulding. It carries forward items like a nine-speaker stereo with subwoofer, forward collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, and power-folding side mirrors.
The 2020 Mitsubishi RVR will arrive in Canada in October.
