Mitsubishi RVR fuel consumption in Kenya

Each person has different points that they want to be particular about when choosing a car, such as driving performance, safety performance, and exterior design. However, fuel efficiency is something you should always check for any vehicle. Since fuel consumption performance affects fuel cost, it is desirable to check not only catalog fuel consumption but also actual fuel consumption in order to set a guideline for maintenance cost.

Here, we will introduce the fuel efficiency performance of Mitsubishi “RVR”.

Drive system Catalog fuel efficiency (km/L) Actual fuel consumption (km/L)
2WD 13.8 8.7
4WD 12.8 11.1


✔ Lacks the fuel efficiency of rival cars Toyota “C-HR” and Honda “Vezel”
✔ Features a 4WD system that utilizes technology cultivated in rallying and vehicle dimensions that achieve excellent running

RVR fuel consumption characteristics

The current RVR, which went on sale in February 2010, is equipped with a SOHC engine equipped with a continuously variable valve timing mechanism that suppresses intake resistance to minimize energy loss, achieving both sporty driving and improved fuel efficiency. It adopts the MIVEC engine that made it possible.

In addition, the adoption of the idling stop mechanism “Auto Stop & Go” and improved aerodynamic performance make it a model with excellent fuel efficiency.

RVR Catalog Fuel Efficiency

The powertrain of the RVR is one type of 1.8L in-line 4-cylinder SOHC engine + CVT, and the drive system is available in 2WD and 4WD.

RVR’s WLTC mode catalog fuel efficiency is as follows.

grade Drive system Fuel consumption (km/L)
M. 2WD 13.8
4WD 12.8
G. 2WD 13.8
4WD 12.8
BLACK Edition 2WD 13.8
4WD 12.8


Actual fuel consumption of RVR

According to the site ” e fuel consumption ” that collects the actual fuel consumption data of the owner riding the RVR, the actual fuel consumption of the RVR (as of September 16, 2021) is as follows.

Grade Drive system Fuel consumption (km/L)
M/G/ BLACK Edition 2WD 8.7
M/G/ BLACK Edition 4WD 11.1


The WLTC mode is said to be a method of measuring fuel consumption that gives values ​​closer to the actual fuel consumption than the JC08 mode that has been used in Japan, but there is still a difference of about 10 to 1.5% between the catalog fuel consumption and the actual fuel consumption. is common.

Considering that point, it can be said that the difference between the RVR’s catalog fuel consumption and the actual fuel consumption is larger than the average value for any drive system.

Compare the catalog fuel efficiency of RVR and rival vehicles

Compact SUVs such as the Toyota “C-HR” and Honda “Vezel” may be mentioned as RVR rivals . Here, let’s compare the catalog fuel efficiency of these two models and RVR.

Toyota “C-HR”

The Toyota C-HR boasts a unique exterior design and excellent fuel efficiency inherited from the Prius In the 2019 minor change, a sports grade with a dedicated undercarriage was also added.

C-HR WLTC mode catalog fuel economy is as follows.

Gasoline car

grade Drive system transmission Fuel consumption (km/L)
ST 2WD CVT 14.9
6 MT 15.4
4WD CVT 14.3
GT 2WD CVT 14.9
6 MT 15.4
4WD CVT 14.3
6 MT 15.4
4WD CVT 14.3


Hybrid car

Grade Drive system transmission Fuel consumption (km/L)
S. 2WD CVT 25.8
G. 2WD CVT 25.8


The C-HR hybrid vehicle achieves low fuel consumption as expected of Toyota, which has a good reputation for hybrid technology. Comparing the fuel efficiency of the C-HR gasoline vehicle and the RVR, there is not much difference, and it can be said that the fuel efficiency performance is almost the same.

Honda “Vezel”

The Honda “Vezel” is attractive for its class-leading rear seat size and stylish exterior design, where even adult men can sit comfortably. It is a model that boasts a high degree of safety, with all models equipped with Honda SENSING, a full range of active safety technology, as standard equipment. The Honda Vezel’s fuel consumption is from 17 to 22 KM/L. Not only hybrid cars, but also gasoline cars, RVR’s catalog fuel efficiency is greatly different from Vezel.
