Comments on Mitsubishi RVR
I read about trhe feature3s.The safety features are excellent. The engine power also very Good/ Good enough to meet the SUV requirement. But 1.8litre capacity engine can develope little more power could have better performance.. The Front grille and shape is not suiteable for an SUV Looks aukward. I think Mitsubishi will Defenitely do some change to the frontside- to provide some angle of approach sothat that area becoms smart and looks very Good. 23 Degree angle of approach . The appeasrence becomes excellent and become a real SUV.September 28, 2012by Joseph.N.J
