The RVR, aka ASX and Outlander Sport, is one of the oldest new vehicles on sale in North America.
Production is ongoing since 2010 and was facelifted for 2020.
The new RVR will likely resemble the Outlander.
The Mitsubishi RVR launched with a bang, a good one, nearly 12 years ago. It provided efficient and entertaining transportation and happened to be affordable and good-looking. The small SUV was updated for 2020 after a decade with few changes and now, it seems, an all-new generation is on its way.
Despite remaining an extremely popular SUV in numerous areas, the RVR’s competition quickly surpassed it – the Mitsubishi’s age has become nearly impossible to mask no matter how big the touchscreen has become.
According to Carscoops, a Mitsubishi representative let slip that an all-new generation of the ASX/RVR/Outlander Sport is in the works and should be revealed in early 2023. Whether this means we’ll see the new SUV in 2022 ahead of a 2023 launch is unclear.
Details about the new 2023 RVR are also unclear. The only lead is that the new vehicle could be the result of a shared Mitsubishi-Renault effort. The French automaker would provide the technology and assemble the vehicle, leaving Mitsubishi with the task of designing it. It stands to reason that the current all-new 2022 Outlander will serve as inspiration.
