According to latest car news, the newly-launched Mitsubishi Expander will likely be rebadged as a Nissan in Indonesia. So, for those who are curious about this new combination, let’s take a peek at the blend of the Expander and the all-new Nissan X-Trail 2017 in rendered photo.

Overall, it is easily recognized that the massive front fascia of the Mitsubishi Expander has disappeared. Instead, it is totally replaced by the one of the X-Trail despite the lower apron is slightly adjusted.

Not only the front, we also see the roof rails and alloy wheel from the X-Trail in this rendering. Moreover, several black plastic side guards are added to emphasize the car’s “SUV-MPV” appearance.

The information about this rebadge has yet to be confirmed officially, but if it’s true, the new Mitsubishi Expander will extremely look cool and great in the new shape.

Anyway, put your main focus on the forthcoming launch of the Mitsubishi Expander 2018 in the Philippines next year first. Latest updates on upcoming Mitsubishi cars can be found in our Complete guide to the Mitsubishi Philippines' model lineup.
