How the 2021 Mitsubishi RVR Fares vs. The 2021 Hyundai Kona at North Bay Mitsubishi in North Bay, Ontario

As two of the most popular compact SUVs on the market, the new Mitsubishi RVR and Hyundai Kona make natural rivals, and we thought it only right to compare them category for category. Being the preeminent source for all things Mitsubishi in North Bay, Ontario and the nearby areas of Powassan, Sturgeon Falls, South River, and Mattawa, our dealership is a bit of an authority on the RVR. Read on to see how it fares against the 2021 Kona and visit us at North Bay Mitsubishi for a closer look at our new RVR inventory.

2021 Mitsubishi RVR Performance vs. 2021 Hyundai Kona

Being smaller SUVs, both the Mitsubishi RVR and Hyundai Kona are best suited for zipping through town and tackling the day's errands in the urban bustle. Both front-wheel drive vehicles come with a base 2-litre four-cylinder engine netting nearly 150 horses, although those craving some added pep can find it in a 2.4-litre, 168-horsepower motor available across most of the RVR's five-trim lineup. While both SUVs are available in all-wheel control/drive and pack nearly identical powertrains, the Kona has drawn some flack from reviewers over its sluggish acceleration and fickle transmission. As for fuel economy, both the RVR and Kona give great bang for your buck with a combined fuel efficiency of 8.8 and 8 L/100km, respectively.

2021 Mitsubishi RVR Interior & Exterior Design vs. 2021 Hyundai Kona

Similar as these compact SUVs may be in terms of hardware, the 2021 Mitsubishi RVR really separates itself from the new Hyundai Kona in the design department. The latest RVR is nothing if not stylish, with your choice of steel or alloy wheels, LED head and tail lights, and a black and silver grille punctuating a truckish, yet elegant exterior aesthetic. The Hyundai Kona, on the other hand, is marred with risks that failed to bear fruit. Tarnishing its all too busy frame are impractical headlight arrangements, non-functional vents in the front end, and dated plastic body cladding. In other words, the new Hyundai Kona has a lot going on, but that doesn't mean it all comes together.

While the 2021 Kona's interior is less busy than its exterior - and thankfully so - the stark contrast between the two makes this Hyundai SUV appear all the more disjointed. The Kona's cabin, though nicely arranged, is a little short on room for the five passengers it's meant to accommodate, especially in the rear. As for the new Mitsubishi RVR, not only is its interior ergonomically designed and peppered with lovely silver accents, it also spares no comfort. Front seats are both heated and adjustable, standard automatic climate control provides a personalized experience year-round, and a centre floor console-leatherette armrest combination offers optimal comfort and keeps your valuables safe all at once.

2021 Mitsubishi RVR Safety & Technology

The Hyundai brand has become synonymous with on-road safety over the years, and the 2021 Kona carries on tradition with glowing safety ratings. That said, the new Mitsubishi RVR is no slouch in that department itself. Between its reliable drive and a slew of standard safety functions, the 2021 RVR allows you to brave the day with the clearest of heads. Leading the Mitsubishi SUV's package are active stability and traction control, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, Hill Start Assist, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. And that's not all, as Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are both included in most of the RVR stable to give you an extra set of eyes on the road.

Rest assured, the new Mitsubishi RVR has you covered in the infotainment department as well. While the Hyundai Kona's tech amenities have been rightfully applauded, few compact SUVs keep you connected on the go like the 2021 RVR. Bluetooth hands-free access, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto all come standard in the latest RVR, with an 8-inch touchscreen providing easy access to all your controls. Audio preferences can be effortlessly set through steering-wheel mounted controls, while a colour multi-information display keeps you abreast of both the RVR's condition and your driving habits. In short, there isn't much the Mitsubishi RVR isn't capable of.
