The Mitsubishi Xpander is a new versatile seven-seat SUV that offers comfort, functionality, quality and value for money. This SUV provides the best of both worlds: the interior enjoys plenty of cabin space, storage facilities and smart technologies; while the exterior’s bold styling does not compromise on high ground clearance, handling stability and overall driving experience.
Exterior: The front of the Xpander has a futuristic look and features a chrome upper grille, swept-back LED headlights and daytime running lights. It incorporates the Dynamic Shield signature look of Mitsubishi Motors that offers greater protection for both pedestrians and passengers. The LED position lamps are arranged in crystal-like blocks and are positioned higher for better visibility. The L-shaped LED rear combination lamps that extend onto the tailgate and accentuate the strong stance.
Interior: The spacious interior of the Xpander is designed to reflect Japanese hospitality omotenashi, providing comfort for all seven adult passengers, thanks to supportive seating, convenient amenities and high-quality materials.
Noise and vibration in the cabin are also effectively absorbed, ensuring a supremely quiet experience for the driver and all passengers. The air conditioning system enjoys eight fan adjustment levels in the front and four in the rear – as well as four rear roof vents, to keep everyone on board comfortable.
Flexibility in the seating configuration also allows for easy loading. The second-row armrest can be folded down and the second and third-row seats can be folded flat to accommodate lengthy loads. Entertainment and hands-free operation are available via the large seven-inch smartphone-link Display Audio or SDA, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing intuitive operation of music, calls, maps and messages for a safer driving experience.
Safe and Convenient: Even with passengers in the third-row seats, luggage space remains sufficient to accommodate space for four-gallon water bottles. Smartphone and device charging is accessible to every passenger as each of the three rows has their 12V power supply adjacent to a convenient storage space.
Safety performance is significantly enhanced, thanks to Mitsubishi Motors’ Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body or RISE, which efficiently absorbs energy and maintains high cabin integrity in the event of a collision. All four doors are also equipped with a support beam to increase protection by reducing door deformation in the event of a side collision. The Xpander also enjoys a variety of active safety features including the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Emergency Stop Signal System (ESS), Active Stability Control (ASC), and Hill Start Assist (HAS).
Powerful Performance: Power is provided by the spirited and responsive 1.5-litre 16-valve Dual overhead camshaft engine with advanced MIVEC – Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system – making it easy for the Xpander to carry seven adult passengers uphill with ease. Excellent ground clearance also provides confidence on rough or flooded roads, while the reinforced suspension, coupled with high-performance shock absorbers and a rigid and lightweight body, ensure stability and comfort.
ATTRAGE AND MIRAGE
The new 2021 Attrage and Mirage offer an advanced dynamic look and feel, safety and intelligent features that are unmatched when combined with good fuel economy and genuine quality. Both cars have streamlined body to slip smoothly through the air. Reduced drag lowers wind noise and CO2 emissions while raising fuel efficiency and high-speed stability.
The new compacts also have a spacious cabin that’s equally impressive as its exterior.
In terms of safety, Both cars are equipped with ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) which distributes braking force to all four wheels to enhance braking performance. Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) employs sensor-transmitters in the wheels to monitor tyre pressure and illuminates a warning lamp on the combination metre cluster if the tyres become significantly underinflated.
The ECO mode indicator illuminates whenever you operate the accelerator pedal in an eco-friendly way, encouraging drivers to develop good driving habits that lower fuel costs and contribute to a cleaner environment.
