Expanding on style and practicality: Spec-checking the Mitsubishi Xpander

With its updated Xpander, Mitsubishi, well, aims to expand its sales in the MPV market. The brand’s best-selling model now sports a more advanced and progressive look, while combining the comfort and capability akin to larger SUVs.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How much is the 2022 Mitsubshi Xpander?

    The 2022 Xpander is priced from P1.05 million to P1.180 million across is three variants.
  • What are some of the improvements of the 2022 Mitsubishi Xpander over the old model?

    The 2022 Xpander is updated with new in-car features such as electronic hand brake and more storage areas.
  • The design of the 2022 Mitsubishi Xpander was created to exude a more aggressive and tough road presence. With the inclusion of three-dimensional skid protectors, the front embraces a more horizontal form. The newly installed black metallic radiator grille and the headlight's familiar T-shape with redesigned LED daytime running lights (DRL) and turn signals are both noticeable.

    With the addition of uniform T-shaped tail lights to the reshaped bumper, as well as tailgate garnish and glass, the rear also displays an improved appearance. The larger 17-inch wheels and side sill garnish are visible on the sides.  

    The 2022 Mitsubishi Xpander's dashboard has the "Horizontal Axis," Mitsubishi's Design Identity. Accents made of plush padding materials with actual stitches go well with this. In addition to sporting a more contemporary style, the tilt and telescopic steering wheel has been redesigned with a compact center to improve grip. A new meter cluster and dynamic opening image takes its place behind the steering wheel.

    2022 Mitsubishi XpanderWhat's also hard to miss inside is the patented seven-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA-3), a touchscreen infotainment system that supports hands-free functions and is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto. A new digital LCD A/C panel that was created to be both understandable and aesthetically pleasing is located at the bottom of the display. The front console has been changed into a larger capacity open tray with a 12V outlet and USB port for greater convenience. 

    The new floor console in the center can contain four 600-millimeter-sized bottles in the main area and a tissue pack on the back of its lid. The cup holders on the console have been rearranged to be sideways and have a bigger circle. All of these are done to improve organization and make the most use of available space within the 2022 Xpander.

    Two rear USB ports in the second row now have one Type-A and one Type-C charger incorporated on the console's back. Additionally, there are now more enticing colors on the rear A/C dial and louver, and cup holders have been added to the seat armrest. All of these improve overall cabin ergonomics.

    With all seats up, this seven-seater MPV has more than enough room for full-size adults plus luggage. As for the rearmost cabin area, it’s been designed to fit four four-gallon water bottles or a stroller immediately behind the last row, with more hip-width and enough head-to-toe space.

    However, when the third-row is folded, the cargo deck is flat with no gaps or protruding parts. It's now simpler to transport bikes, potted plants, or even furniture as needed. The 2022 Xpander displays versatility at its finest.

    According to the carmaker, the 2022 Mitsubishi Xpander is still the only vehicle in its class with cruise control, which helps drivers feel less fatigued on lengthy drives. Additionally, a reverse camera has been added to help improve vision while backing up.

    When driving, the improved settings for the suspension and steering can make themselves known. A smoother and more pleasant ride is achieved, even on winding roads, thanks to the larger rear absorber, more front and rear springs, and high performance valves. To reduce driver stress, a steering wheel return control was also incorporated for enhanced agility at low speeds.

    The shift panel now has the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) and Brake Auto Hold (BAH) buttons. The former allows for less effort when applying the brakes, which increases comfort, especially in traffic circumstances. The latter, when stationary, eliminates the need to press the pedal all the way down.

    These are currently included as standard equipment for automatic transmission models of the 2022 Mitsubishi Xpander, together with Active Stability Control (ASC), Hill Start Assist (HAS), and Traction Control (TCL).

    What the 2022 Xpander also expanded on is its ground clearance — after all, it's said to be the best-in-class in this area. When the ground clearance is increased to 225 millimeters, the driver has a higher vantage point from which to assess the state of the road and has greater confidence, particularly during floods.

    A 1.5-liter MIVEC engine with 103 horsepower and 141Nm of torque is housed underneath the hood. It continues to be a dependable power plant with exceptional fuel efficiency and strong performance. As before, the engine is mated to a four-speed automatic and five-speed manual transmissions. 

    All of the above are just a glimpse of what the familiar and popular 2022 Xpander can offer. To know more about the MPV, the model’s spec sheet — along with the details of each Xpander variant — is available below.
