    Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) officially unveils the much-anticipated 2023 New Mitsubishi Xpander Cross, a modern 7-seater MPV Crossover with SUV capabilities. It is perfect for individuals and families who prefer performance and functionality in one aggressively styled package. This latest iteration of Mitsubishi’s best-selling model is set to redefine the MPV segment with its more advanced and progressive looks while also combining the luxury and comfort of premium vehicles.


    The New Xpander Cross takes the sense of adventure up a notch by enhancing the practical essence of the Xpander with an SUV-like design structure. Perfect as a daily city cruiser, it is also capable of taking you off the beaten path during the weekends.

    The New Xpander Cross was developed to exude a more “active” and “outdoorsy” image. The black wheel arch moldings, door garnishes, and side sills give it a taller stance, while the rear and front bumpers are more masculine with the guard bar motif rails. Roof rails are standard.

    It also sports the T-shaped LED headlights with daytime running lights (DRL) and LED fog lamps at the bottom.

    Looking at the side, the newly designed 17” alloy wheels give the car a more rugged stance. The redesigned rear also shows off a bolder appearance with its T- shaped LED taillights that seamlessly integrate into the refreshed tailgate garnish.

    The interior has been reimagined with comfort and convenience in mind. The New Xpander cross offers an exclusive combination of luxury and high-tech features, some of which can only be seen on Mitsubishi’s premium vehicles.

    New 4-Spoke Leather-Wrapped Steering wheel

    The New Xpander Cross projects a “Horizontal Axis” dashboard that smoothly integrates all the interior elements at the front. Across the dashboard runs the soft padded materials with real stitches in a new navy blue shade.

    In the driver’s seat, you will immediately notice the new 4-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel reminiscent of the premium mid-sized Montero Sport SUV. It is also tilt and telescopic adjustable, and with its more robust layout, drivers enjoy a better grip on the steering wheel. Moreover, the steering wheel return control is now faster for better maneuverability at low speeds. Behind the wheel is a new 8-inch LCD digital meter cluster that is highly visible. This allows easy access and viewing of multiple information essential for driving.

    The center console ensures seamless pairing with your devices, and all controls are within your reach. You also get an intuitive digital AC system with a max cool button for rapid in-cabin cooling. All the seats are wrapped with innovative leather, finished in navy blue soft-touch padding with stitching. It suppresses any increase in surface temperature with its heat guard technology.

    Rides are now more enjoyable with the 7-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA-3) system. A touchscreen infotainment system that supports hands-free functions and is compatible to both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto. For improved convenience, the front console has been converted into a larger capacity open tray while still having a 12V outlet and USB port.

    Taking an outdoor adventure with the New Xpander Cross has never been easier, thanks to its spacious luggage room, adaptive seating arrangements, and versatile storage compartments.

    Leather-wrapped armrest with storage and Tissue Holder

    At the center is the leather-wrapped armrest that can hold a tissue pack on the back of its lid and four 600ml-sized bottles in the main space. All these enhancements offer better organization and maximization of space.

    In the second row, the two rear USB ports have 1 TYPE-A and 1 TYPE-C embedded on the back of the console. All these contribute to overall comfort inside the vehicle. Front-row and luggage under trays, multi-function seat-back pockets, and third-row power outlets are present for additional storage and convenience.

    Rear Cargo Under Floor Organizer

    With all seats up, this 7-seater has more than enough room to fit seven full-size adults plus their luggage. It is configured to have more hip-width and ample room from head to toe while being able to fit four 4-gallon water bottles or a stroller directly behind the last row. The rear cargo is versatile, making it easier to load bikes, camping gear, or any bulky items.

    Drivability and Safety

    Driving comfort and safety have been optimized for this model. Its rear suspension system uses the same components as the Mitsubishi Montero Sport. The enlarged rear shock absorber results in a more comfortable and stable ride, even on rough roads. This, together with advanced safety features such as Active Stability Control (ASC), Hill Start Assist (HAS), and Traction Control (TCL), ensures that every drive is safe and enjoyable.

    It is equipped with Cruise Control to reduce fatigue on long drives. A high-definition reverse camera provides better visibility while backing up.

    Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) and Brake Auto Hold (BAH) buttons further contribute to creature comforts inside the New Xpander Cross. Helping reduce driver stress particularly during traffic situations, this technology allows the driver to retain the braking force and maintain the vehicle in a stopped state while in traffic.

    The New Xpander Cross ensures precise stability when cornering with the New Active Yaw Control system, or A.Y.C., that electronically and intelligently guides and stabilizes the car on sharp turns and especially on slippery road surfaces.

    With 225mm of high ground clearance, the New Xpander Cross continues to be the best in its class. This 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 MIVEC DOHC 16-valve with 104hp and 141nm torque mated to a 4-speed Automatic Transmission. It is ever reliable with respect to fuel economy while being assured of a powerful performance.

    “With the New Xpander Cross, they (customers) can comfortably and confidently go out and experience the scenic places of the Philippines. Hence our tagline: Cross the Current — where your family can expand horizons in comfort and style. It is as if you are crossing into a new world filled with memorable experiences.” said Takeshi Hara, MMPC president and CEO.

    The Xpander Cross starts is offered in four color options: Quartz White Pearl (2-tone), Sunrise Orange Metallic (2-tone), Graphite Gray Metallic, and Blade Silver Metallic. Check out the MMPC’s official website or view it at any Mitsubishi Motors dealership nationwide.
