At long last, the Mitsubishi Xpander facelift has arrived and is now open for booking. It will be locally assembled in Pekan, Pahang and is available in a single variant, for now. Find out more about it in detail here.
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has yet to slap a price on it, but has revealed plenty of the car and for those looking to own the Xpander, there’ll be plenty to look forward to. For starters, the exterior gets a revised look from the pre-facelift model; mainly on the front grille, the headlamps, the wheels and the antenna. The Xpander also promises a composed and stable ride having adopted components from the dampers of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.
It gets better inside as the Xpander’s interior surpasses the expectations you’d have of such a car; even when compared against its closest rivals such as the Honda BR-V, Toyota Rush and Perodua Aruz. For starters, there’s a surround view monitor, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to begin with; accessible through a rather large 9-inch touchscreen display that’s linked to six speakers.
They’ve done plenty to ensure that the Xpander will thrive as a family-friendly vehicle as well. Not only is there an abundance of storage space, Mitsubishi has also applied thicker (than industry standards) windows both in the front and back, thicker headlining and floor carpets. All this promises a quieter ride with reduced vibrations.
As for cargo space, there will be plenty if with the 3rd row flattened, up to 495-litres, but if necessary, there’ll be 836-litres with the second row flattened as well. Mitsubishi also boasted that the Xpander is the only vehicle in its class where the seats can be folded completely flat.
