No doubt one of the most anticipated arrivals this year is Mitsubishi's Xpander MPV, the somewhat replacement for the beloved Adventure. We've driven it in Japan, and we can say that it lives up to the hype.
And now the wait for local ownership is almost over, as Mitsubishi Motors Philippines has announced that it is accepting pre-orders for its much-anticipated Xpander. Here are the variants and the indicative prices:
GLX MT - P900,000
GLX Plus AT - P990,000
GLS AT - P1,050,000
GLS Sport AT - P1,100,000
All Xpanders are powered by a 1.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder naturally aspirated gasoline engine with MIVEC tech. If you're worried about it being underpowered, for most motoring needs it's not. And believe us, even the manual variant is fun to drive. But if you're paying for the top spec variant, you'll be getting Hill Start Assist, Active Stability Control, Emergency Stop Signal, and ABS with EBD.
To pre-order, go to the Xpander's website (xpander.mmpc.ph) and fill out the pre-order form. Then you have to pay P10,000 at your preferred Mitsubishi dealer to complete the pre-order.
The Mitsubishi Xpander is that rare model that lives up to the hype. It's comfortable, fun to drive and (depending on your taste) stylish. Watch out for more content on this MPV soon!
