The RVR and the Outlander Sport are the same vehicle, just named differently in their respective markets. In Canada it’s called the RVR, while in the United States it’s called the Outlander Sport. But don’t be confused, it’s still the same stylish, safe, and adventure-ready SUV, just under a fresh name for Canada. Learn all about why its name was changed, what RVR stands for, and why it’s such a special vehicle, from your local Edmonton Mitsubishi dealer, West Side Mitsubishi!
Why are the RVR and Outlander Sport Named Different?
So, even though there’s just an imaginary line separating Canada and the United States, why does this vehicle need a different name in each country? It’s all about confusion; namely, avoiding it—Mitsubishi Canada doesn’t want their customers confused by their Mitsubishi SUV offerings. The SUVs are the pride and joy of Mitsubishi’s current lineup, and a Mitsubishi Outlander already exists. This Outlander is a 7-seat SUV, unlike the 5-seat RVR, so it’s given a different name to better separate it in Canada.
What Does RVR Stand for?
Sure, you now know why the RVR and Outlander Sport are named differently, but what does “RVR” even mean? RVR stands for Recreational Vehicle Runner, which is a terrific descriptor of this agile SUV. The RVR is both stylish and ready for adventure, prepared for anything the city throws its way thanks to its sleek urban theme, while still primed to tackle the rugged outdoors with its dynamic SUV utility. Representative of a crossover that checks every box, the RVR offers style, capability, and size.
