Like the Mitsubishi Xpander but wish it was a little bit more rugged? Well, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation has heard your prayers.
The 2023 Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is a bolder and more aggressive-looking iteration of the popular 7- seater MPV. Now, it’s more than just a daily city cruiser; it’s also capable of taking you off the beaten path during the weekends.
The Xpander Cross gets new T-shaped LED headlights with DRLs, updated LED foglights, as well as new T-shaped LED taillights and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, it gets a new 4-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel reminiscent of the one found in the Montero Sport. There’s also a new 8-inch LCD digital meter cluster, as well as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
Other creature comforts inside the cabin include a digital air-conditioning system with max cool function, leather-wrapped seats in dark navy blue with heat guard technology, a leather-wrapped armrest with storage space, a rear cargo under-floor organizer, USB charging ports, and a rear under-seat tray below the front passenger seat.
Under the hood of the Xpander Cross is a 1.5-liter MIVEC DOHC 16-valve (104 hp and 141Nm) mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission—the same setup you’ll find in the regular Xpander.
What’s new is the rear suspension system, which has adopted the same components as the Mitsubishi Montero Sport. The enlarged rear shock absorbers result in a more pliant and stable ride. Also new is the Active Yaw Control (AYC), which electronically and intelligently guides the vehicle to improve its overall handling and stability.
Safety features include driver and front passenger airbags, active stability control, hill start assist, traction control, ISOFIX, and a reverse camera.
Here are the prices and colors of the new Xpander Cross:
- Blade Silver Metallic and Graphite Gray Metallic (Monotone): P1,328,000
- Sunrise Orange Metallic (2-Tone): P1,338,000
- Quartz White Pearl (2-Tone): P1,353,000
