Inside the Mitsubishi Xpander, the way Mitsubishi designed the dashboard will always catch your eye. It is elegant and it has everything a driver needs within easy reach. The centerpiece on the Xpander is a 7-inch LCD screen that comes with AM/FM radio, MP3, AUX, USB, iPod, Bluetooth connectivity, and navigation.

With regards to seats, the Xpander has fabric all around and they are pretty comfortable. Generous too with legroom and headroom.

As for the Suzuki Ertiga, the regular variants have a beige looking interior which is known to catch stains easily. Regardless of that, the seating is pretty comfortable but the driving position is rather on the high side. Knee room and headroom for the third and second row are pretty good though.

If we have to make a statement about the Ertiga’s interior styling, the Black Edition interior provides the vehicle tons and tons of personality. It’s sleek, much more stain-resistant and looks premium. That comes with additional costs but for us, the Black Edition Ertiga is worth it alone for the added stain resistance.

With the Ertiga’s on-board tech, the large 10-inch touchscreen provides better visibility plus it can do what the one on the Xpander can except for the iPod compatibility part. It also has navigation and Bluetooth or USB connectivity. Some people who have owned the Ertiga for quite a while now say that the touchscreen unit can be a bit laggy at times.
