KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What updates does the 2023 Mitsubishi Xpander carry?

    The 2023 Xpander is made fresh with a redesigned styling with sharper lights front and rear, new infotainment system, and charging points inside.
  • What powers the 2023 Xpander?

    Similar to the previous model, the 2023 Xpander retains its1.5-liter MIVEC engine with 103hp and 141Nm of torque. A five-speed manual and four-speed auto are the transmission choices. 
  • Retail pricing starts at P1.03 million with five color options: White Pearl, Graphite Gray, Black, Red, Sunshine Orange and the newest Blade Silver Metallic.

    The 2022 Xpander exterior is developed to exude tough characteristics. Starting with the exterior, the front embraces a more horizontal structure with the addition of three-dimensional skid guards. Evident are the new black metallic radiator grille and the now signature T-shape headlight with a restyled LED daytime running lights (DRL) and turn signal.

    The back also shows off an upgraded appearance with the adoption of a homogeneous T-shape taillight unto the reshaped bumper as well as tailgate garnish and glass. On the sides, noticeable are the bigger 17-inch wheels and larger side sill garnish.

    Stepping inside the 2022 Xpander, Mitsubishi’s design identity of “Horizontal Axis” was applied to the dashboard for a more robust feel. This is complemented by accents of soft padded materials with real stitches.

    At the driver’s seat, the tilt and telescopic steering wheel, aside from its now more modern styling, has been restructured with a compact center to enable a better grip. Behind it, a new meter cluster and dynamic opening graphic have been incorporated.

    Hard to miss is the seven-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA-3). A touchscreen infotainment system that supports hands-free functions and is compatible to both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto. Below the infotainment is the new digital LCD A/C panel that was made not only to match the overall aesthetic but also to be easy to understand. For improved convenience, the front console has been converted into a larger capacity open tray while still having a 12V outlet and USB port

    Down the center is the new floor console with arm rests that can hold a tissue pack on the back of its lid and four 600 ml-sized bottles in the main space. The layout of the console cup holders have been reoriented sideways and now with a larger circumference. All these to offer better organization and maximization of space.

    In the second row, the 2022 Xpander is now fitted with two rear USB ports, one Type-A and one Type-C chargers, on the back of the console. The rear A/C dial and louver now also have more inviting colors and cup holders have been placed unto the seat armrest. Customer favorites such as the easy-folding seat mechanisms, front row and luggage under trays, multi-function seat-back pockets and third row power outlets can still be found.

    With all seats up, the 2022 Xpander has more than enough room for full-size adults plus luggage. Configured to have more hip-width and ample room from the head to toe while being able to fit four four-gallon water bottles or a stroller directly behind the last row. Whereas when folded, a flat cargo deck can be utilized, making it easier to transport bikes, potted plants or even furniture as needed.

    2022 Mitsubishi Xpander

    The 2022 Xpander is the only vehicle in its class to offer cruise control to aid in reducing fatigue on long trips, MMPC claimed. A reverse camera has also been included to help provide more visibility while backing up. 

    Steering and suspension settings have also been optimized. The enlarged rear absorber along with extra front and rear springs and high performance valves, result to a flatter and more comfortable ride even on winding roads. Moreover, a steering wheel return control was integrated for better maneuverability at low speeds to relieve driver stress.

    Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) and Brake Auto Hold (BAH) buttons are now part of the shift panel. For increased relaxation particularly during traffic situations, the former allows the brakes to be stepped on with less force, and the latter, if stationary, does not require a foot down on the pedal. These together with Active Stability Control (ASC), Hill Start Assist (HAS), and Traction Control (TCL) now come standard for automatic transmission variants.

    With a best-in-class ground clearance of 225 millimeters, the 2022 Xpander gives the driver a higher eye-point for better recognition of road conditions and added confidence especially during floods. Under the hood is a 1.5-liter MIVEC engine with 103hp and 141Nm of torque. A five-speed manual and four-speed auto are the transmission choices. 

    The 2022 Xpander is available for test drive at MMPC's "Reimagine Your Ride: The Mitsubishi Test Drive Tour" from May 20 to 22, happening at Block 16 SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, Pasay City, from 10 a.m. to 7p.m..
