I will give credit for the good color choices for this vehicle. The glossy body paint
looks very refreshing to the eyes, but I will agree that its features are common.

It only looks so decent on its platform and with its glossy body paint. However, I must say that I’m not so impressed with this one. It only looks very common, and it seems that it doesn’t have any interesting feature.

The platform design is very common, but it was still impressive, RVR already looks good and great with its color. Just curious if what the interior of this car looks like.

RVR platform designed is so simple and ordinary but I found it very appealing. It had its own sophisticated and classy looks and it already looks great at its color.

The front bumper really good, and the glossy finish truly caught my attention that I will wait for this car to be released on the market. I guess it’s one of the extraordinary crossovers to be released and I’m very excited about this car.

What’s wrong with this car? Well, I can’t see anything wrong in it. It is so identical to their compact crossover and I must say that I would still prefer the compact than to this RVR but it’s kind of impressive.

It seems ordinary but still it had a classy and sophisticated look. I’m just a little curious on its interior features. I will wait for another updated article about this.

The glossy finish touch of this RVR really catch my attention. Well, they are right that it looks like Lancer and why is it they didn’t include on their article its interior?

The platform design is very common but it was still impressive, RVR already looks good and great with its color. Just curious if what the interior of this car looks like.

It’s front looks like the Toyota corolla, Camry is one of the best Full size sedan, better than the Honda Accord and Teana, and out dated Mitsubishi Galant.

Sitting on its long wheelbase and wide tracks, Colt CZC delivers the dynamics on the road that are promised by its purposeful styling.

well i’d rather get myself the oulander road test than the Mitsubishi RVR.

Wow, what an ugly vehicle! It looks like the product of when an Evo has sex with a PT Cruiser. I think I’m gonna hurl.

This RVR seems to be more bulkier, the front bumper really good, and the glossy finish really catch my attention that I will wait for this car to be released on the market. I guess it’s one of the extraordinary crossovers to be released and I’m very excited about this car.

it actually looks like the lancer wagon they should have made instead of that sportback hatchback mistake.

It’s nice that they are coming up with a new car, but since I got to know Mitsubishi, I haven’t seen any designs that makes a scene. It seems that every year, all cars they launched are just the same in appearance, especially with crossovers.

I think the trend goes the other way. I think people prefer it more on bigger vehicle that can accommodate more riders. They are doing this mainly to save money and the environment and for convenience. But when it comes to style, even though it is more like a family car, Mitsubishi RVR is doing great, it is improving.

I love it, but there is only one thing i hate about MMC. their Nose/grills and front bumpers are look exactly the same as the Lancer, Galant, etc. i think mmc is stuck up with this style of their from vehicles.
