2020 Mitsubishi Xpander gets updates to its exterior and cabin

- Topgear.com.ph

IT SEEMS like only yesterday that the Philippine­s was gearing up for the Mitsubishi Xpander’s arrival— now, other markets are already giving the hugely popular seven-seater an update.

In Indonesia, the Japanese car manufactur­er has upgraded this hotselling MPV for 2020 with new exterior components and some changes to the cabin. Outside, you’ll find an altered Dynamic Shield grille with a more prominent Mitsubishi badge on it. The latest Xpander also comes available with new 16-inch alloy wheels, a shark-fin antenna up top, and LED headlights.

Inside, select variants get a new instrument cluster and some nice faux wood or silver trim. New seat patterns in beige and black are also available for customers looking for a more unique cabin aesthetic. For in-car entertainm­ent, the vehicle boasts a new seven-inch touchscree­n infotainme­nt system, and a rear sensor for easier parking.

No changes have been made to the Xpander’s powertrain: Under the hood is the same modest but economical 1.5-liter DOHC engine as before. This powerplant, which is capable of 103hp and 141Nm of torque, is still mated to either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmissi­on.
