Is this the Mitsubishi Xpander-based, next-generation Nissan Livina?

Back in July 2018, Philkotse.com reported that the Mitsubishi Xpander will get Nissan badge soon. Now it’s time to welcome this new face of this heated-up MPV which was occupied by the Nissan Livina. This was revealed by Instagram user @indra_prasetya1604 but now both the images and account have been taken down.

The first photo shows a car predicted to be the Xpander’s tail lamps and the distinct black band combining the rear hatch with the rear quarter panel window. Meanwhile, the second photo reveals the “V-motion” grille, plus a different front bumper. The rest is almost the same as seen in the Xpander including LED position lights and the bumper-embedded headlamps.

Especially, Kompas.com - an Indonesian news outlet reported that dealers of Nissan in Jakarta were already accepting orders for the Nissan-badged Xpander. Besides, it is said that the Xpander-based twin MPV would make its debut in late this month while deliveries for customers will start in March. Kompas also confirmed that it is dubbed Livina by Nissan dealers.

Last but not least, PT Nissan Motor Indonesia reported stopping manufacturing the previous-gen Livina on January 18th, 2019 to welcome the Nissan-rebadged Mitsubishi Xpander which is manufactured by PT Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Indonesia.
