Mitsubishi Xpander 2020 - 2021 Overview
Under the hood of the Mitsubishi Xpander, a 1.5-liter 4A91 MIVEC naturally-aspirated four-cylinder gasoline engine produces 141 Nm of torque and 103 HP. It is mated to either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission that can be found under its hood.
Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation offers the Mitsubishi Xpander in three variants: Mitsubishi Xpander GLX MT, Mitsubishi Xpander GLX Plus AT, and Mitsubishi Xpander GLS AT. The model is also available in five different color options namely Titanium Gray, Jet Black Mica, Red Metallic, Quartz White Pearl, and Sterling Silver Metallic.
The Mitsubishi Xpander was first introduced in Indonesia in August of 2017. In 2018, during its kickoff year, the model received several awards in the Indonesian market, one of which is the FORWOT Car of the Year. Later that year, on March 2, 2018, the small MPV was launched by Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation in the Philippines that became the company’s one of the best-selling models.
The Xpander replaces the same brand’s AUV - the Adventure. The Mitsubishi Xpander’s car-like chassis and dynamic shield design assure an improved overall comfort. The coil springs on all four wheels with an ample amount of ground clearance provide better riding.
The very spacious Mitsubishi Xpander is one of the most futuristic looking MPVs in the market today
Mitsubishi’s dynamic shield design language concept was applied to the Xpander. The front fog lamps, as well as the turn signals and headlights, are housed by the front bumper. One of this MPV’s traits that defined this model is its DRLs located around the headlights. Consumers can include extra body kits to the GLS Sports variant if they want to add chin to the model’s front fascia.
The lighting cluster is made up of halogens and LEDs. At the bottom, there is also the rear fog light of the back bumper together with a diffuser. It makes the Mitsubishi Xpander appear lower. The large shiny square-shaped headlight of this model is placed in the bumper. It creates an SUV appearance due to its sleek LED DRLs that blend well with its signature X-shaped Shield grille, reflecting a sharp and very dynamic profile.
The Mitsubishi Xpander is loaded with cloth seats and durable plastics. This model is suitable for being a mini-people transporter that takes into account the duties of an MPV. In comparison with GLX variants that utilize steering wheels covered with polyurethane, it uses leather-wrapped one and various panels. Faux-leather texture finished with faux stitching was used to fill the dashboard.
The model can be transformed from being a family car into a competent freight vehicle because of its spacious cabin. The second row comes with an ample amount of space. The third row is better allocated for smaller people or children. There is a myriad of storage space options and cubby holes available inside the cabin as well.
Technology & Safety Features
The Mitsubishi Xpander features AUX, Smartphone Mirroring Options, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. Once in reverse, the driver can see what is going on behind the vehicle with its backup camera that comes as a standard in higher variants.
In terms of safety, the Xpander is built with Mitsubishi’s proprietary RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) unibody construction. It achieved 4-star ratings on ASEAN NCAP. The small MPV has shown high levels of child and adult protection. Moreover, it comes with two airbags for both driver and passenger seats, ABS with EBD that comes along with the Emergency Stop Signal system wherein the hazard lights flash due to a sudden brake. Stability control systems, hill start assist, and traction control are on offer for top GLS variants. Seats to accommodate children are plausible because of the presence of standard ISOFIX tethers.
Platform & Chassis
The Mitsubishi Xpander is a subcompact MPV, with five doors and can accommodate seven occupants. It has a width of 1,750 mm and a length of 4,475 mm. The model has a ground clearance of 200mm and a wheelbase of 2,775mm. It also goes with a gross weight of 1,780 kg.
It sits on the Mitsubishi Car Platform, which is based on a sedan. MacPherson strut is used as the front suspension while the rear utilizes a torsion beam suspension setup. By matching this with a monocoque chassis, the small MPV can demonstrate quiet performance as well as a decent behavior in not-so-perfect roads. Front brakes are made of 15-inch ventilated discs, and the rear is a 9-inch drum.
Engine & Drivetrain
Mitsubishi equipped the Xpander with the NC1W gasoline-powered unit. The small MPV has ample capability and has a 1.5-liter DOHC gasoline engine that comes with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) situated under the hood. This makes it possible to have minimum noise as well as vibration.
The gasoline engine can generate a peak torque of 141 Nm and a total of 105 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and go with either a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. Thus, the engine can carry seven people, and their respective luggage and the Mitsubishi Xpander can pull firmly to 140 km/h.
