It also boasts of the best-in-class interior dimensions equating to a spacious cabin for 7 adults.

The Xpander will also come with safety features such as Hill Start Assist (HSA), Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) Body, Active Stability Control (ASC), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), and Anti-Locking Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD).

Produced at Mitsubishi Motors Corp.’s (MMC) new factory in Indonesia, the all-new Xpander will come in 4 variants: GLX MT, GLX Plus AT, GLS AT, and top-of-the-line GLS Sport AT.

The all-new Xpander will be offered in five colors for the GLS Sport and GLS variants: Red Metallic, Titanium Gray Metallic, Sterling Silver Metallic, Quartz White Pearl, and Diamond Black Mica while the GLX Plus will be available in Titanium Gray Metallic, Sterling Silver Metallic, Quartz White Pearl, and Diamond Black Mica  and the GLX MT will be available in Titanium Gray Metallic, Sterling Silver Metallic, and Diamond Black Mica .

  3. Terrible pricing. It's noticeably more expensive than both the Mobilio and Ertiga. Also, a 4 speed automatic for P1M? Ridiculous. I don't know how Mitsubishi can go from releasing something as nice and well priced as the Montero Sport, to this overpriced, 3rd world spec'ed MPV.

    1. I agree, medyo mahal nga tong pricing. I would opt for a brv honda or mobilio.

    2. this is way better than the mobilio or BR-V, those cars are simply elongated Brio on roids. Honda just did a good job covering it.

    3. Ang pangit naman ng brio kumpara xpander. They just stretched thr brio and call it mobilio thrn they raised the mobilio and call it brv. Tamad na yata honda

    4. Its competitors are Honda BR-V and Toyota Rush, although Xpander is categorized as MPV that's why it is priced like that.

  4. If the poverty pack will have a full suite of safety features the same as the range topper, then the price isn't so bad I guess. Think how much cheaper it could have been prior to the TRAIN.

    1. Likely no. The GLX may have dual airbags and probably ABS. Expect the ATs to get most of the features.

  5. 2018 is the "Battle of the New Crossovers": Mitsubishi Xpander, Toyota Rush, and the new Suzuki Vitara GLX.

  6. If this 1.5L is a diesel and same price range even if a bit more, it would make a killing. It would definitely topple the Innova.

  7. My great grandfather was still alive when 4 speed automatics were good.

  8. Why the hell are people complaining about the price? When Isuzu sells its ancient crosswind for 1.3M, no one bats an eye.

  9. Cvt Naman sana... But 4 speed?1 hahahaha

  10. Its probably the same transmission that killed mitsubishi fuzion. That was matted with a 2.4 liter gas. The gear ratio was tall, when you hit about 70-80 km/hr it starts to accelerate in crawl and fuel milage drops significantly.

  11. i doubt it will beat the innova in this price range considering toyotna este toytoyah oops toyota has both gas and diesel variants that has more omp and good fuel efficiency. well each its own naman..so i guessed we will still see this flying around the metro. I still have our 00 adventure and still good given it's age (good grief) sabi nga nila alaga lang talaga sa maintenance

  14. Looks like it's going to be a tough sell for Mitsubishi if they price it like that. That gas engine isn't really as powerful as the BR-V, and it isn't diesel to compete against the Innova. I guess this is meant to compete with the Avanza Veloz, which prioritizes form over everything else. None of them doesn't even look good, anyway. No one wants an underpowered MPV for 1M Pesos.... except for those brave enough to spend 1.3M Pesos on a freaking Crosswind
