Yellow Means Slow Down!

We in Edmonton have our own brand of driver, we all know it. Sometimes you need superhuman driving abilities just to make it to work in one piece, and that’s where the 2018 Mitsubishi RVR comes in. RVR’s anti-lock brakes are reinforced by it’s Electronic Brake-Force Distribution system, further enhancing braking ability in the mess that can be our streets. 

...or does it?

But stopping isn’t always the best option. Ice around these parts is a fickle thing, and sometimes you’re better off making sure you get through that yellow light safely. RVR has you covered again with specialized Traction Control Logic you can put the traction to the road, ice or no ice. It is Powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine (or optional 2.4L in some Trims).

Safety Comes First

Our River Valley is home to most of the few hills in our city, hills that present particularly scary winter driving challenges (looking at you, 105st north of the river). RVR has your back once again with a robust Hill Start Assist. Rest assured that your vehicle is capable of getting you started safely up that hill, especially when paired with decent winter tires from our Service Department.

Our Winters can be Scary

We in Edmonton have our own brand of driver, we all know it. Sometimes you need superhuman driving abilities just to make it to work in one piece, and that’s where the 2018 Mitsubishi RVR comes in. RVR’s anti-lock brakes are reinforced by it’s Electronic Brake-Force Distribution system, further enhancing braking ability in the mess that can be our streets. 

As if that weren’t enough, the RVR also has a Brake Override System capable of partially compensating small input mistakes like wet winter boots losing grip on a pedal mid-operation. Using sensors programmed to adjust for things like unexpected additional brake pedal pressure (hey, some boots are thicker than others), this system will electronically adjust information sent to the EBD module mentioned above and determine the correct pressure on each wheel brake to keep you in control.

But stopping isn’t always the best option. Ice around these parts is a fickle thing, and sometimes you’re better off making sure you get through that yellow light safely. RVR has you covered again with specialized Traction Control Logic you can put the traction to the road, ice or no ice. Powered by a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine (2.4L available in some models), you’ll have the torque available to get you moving when you need it. And there’s nothing safer than driver confidence, bolstered by a vehicle capable of executing those decisions while maintaining absolute control.

The RVR Keeps you Safe

Mitsubishi’s Active Stability Control further assists in maneuvers, overseeing the ABS, traction control and stability control functions simultaneously. While we can’t recommend a rally-style approach to driving in Edmonton, day-to-day driving in the winter becomes much closer to driving in the summer thanks to one computer managing all of these functions to better match driver intent with driver input. The cherry on the cake are the front and rear stabilizer bars, helping to keep your vehicle’s center of gravity from shifting during handling.

Special Note: While we never encourage modifying these systems with aftermarket parts, we cannot stress enough the importance of keeping and regularly servicing your vehicle’s factory drivetrain components. In particular, tampering with or replacing the factory differentials may cause the Active Stability Control system to not work properly. 

There’s more to us than snow and ice. Other drivers can be unpredictable, and that’s dangerous on the warmest and driest of days. We’ve all had near-misses with the folks who feel that our blind spot is the best place to drive, or others who seem to have cars that can turn invisible only to suddenly appear when we least expect it. For those situations, the 2018 Mitsubishi RVR is equipped with a Lane Departure Warning that will let you know if someone’s snuck up on you between mirror- and shoulder-checks.
