One of the redeeming traits of Filipinos is the closeness to their families. Fiestas, reunions, Christmas, New Year, Three Kings, Mahal na Araw—most festivities that we have here are often celebrated with the family, which shows the importance of kin in our lives. It’s part of our culture, whether we like it or not, and it’s also part of the major decisions we have to make in life—that includes car buying.
Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) puts the all-new Xpander Cross at the forefront of providing mobility to the Filipino family. Taking the esteemed versatility and dependability of its predecessor, the Mitsubishi Adventure, the Xpander Cross takes that to another level, making it the best MPV for Filipino families.
Flexible seating for seven
Family members come in various shapes and sizes, that’s why space is important in a family car. The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross comes standard with seven leather-upholstered seats with various adjustments to ensure coziness for all occupants.
The second row slides into place to give enough knee room for the third-row occupants. Even better, the second-row seats fold and stumble to allow easy ingress and egress at the back.
Smart & high-tech features
Long drives can be a doozy but with the Xpander Cross’s cruise control, highway drives would be effortless. With buttons mounted on the steering wheel, the cruise control is easy to use—just set your desired speed and watch the car do the work.
The Xpander Cross also comes with a massive 7-inch capacitive touchscreen infotainment system with tuner and MP3 in a bright amber display. It can connect in numerous ways like Bluetooth, USB, auxiliary input, and iPod. Even better, it has a Mirror Link function to pair up with your Android-powered smartphone.
Multiple storage spaces
The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross has several cubbyholes and storage spaces all over the cabin. Rear seat pockets are found behind the first row, while the center console compartment features a sliding cover and a 12V accessory charger. The second row has stow compartments under the seat as well, while power outlets populate all three rows of the SUV.
The cargo area offers ample default space for seven people while also offering extended stowage with its underfloor luggage compartment. For maximum hauling needs, all seats fold flat to the floor, presenting over 1,600 liters of usable cargo space.
A comfortable and safe journey anywhere
With MacPherson strut with coil spring at the front and durable torsion beam suspensions at the back, the Xpander Cross ensures a pliant drive regardless of road impurities. It also has 225mm of space from the ground, making ferrying safe even on paths that haven’t been created yet. Need to go on an adventure with the family? The Xpander Cross can take you there.
The journey would be safe, too. Dual airbags, seven three-point seatbelts, active stability control, traction control, and hill-start assist—these come standard with the Xpander Cross. And with air-conditioning at the front and back, the Xpander Cross ensures a snug and cozy ride for all seven family members no matter where the roads lead them.
Efficient power, when you need it
The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is powered by a 1.5-liter inline-four DOHC gasoline engine with MIVEC technology. This tried and tested power plant produces 103hp and 141Nm of torque, enough to take you wherever you wanted to.
The small displacement and MIVEC technology ensure efficiency with every step at the accelerator, minimizing fuel consumption so you could get more out of every drop of fuel. Of note, this engine is also used in other Xpander variants that come with a lesser price tag.
Easy on the family budget
The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross can be had with an all-in downpayment of PHP 99,000, with a monthly amortization of PHP 25,393 for a 60-month term. Even better, it’s part of Mitsubishi’s Head Start promo that offers free amortization for two months, giving you over PHP 50,000 of savings. The Xpander Cross has a retail price of PHP 1,255,000.
