The Mitsubishi XPANDER will only be available in one variant but four different colour options will be available. It will also come equipped with a 1.5-litre MIVEC petrol engine which produces 105PS at 6,000rpm and 141Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. The engine is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission which has been optimised for fuel economy.
The XPANDER also rides 205mm off the ground, giving it one of the highest ground clearance amongst its MPV peers.Moving to where it really matters, the XPANDER gets best-in-class cabin space with an overall headroom of 1,7300mm and overall length of 4,475mm. Its 2,775mm long wheelbase and 1,750mm width also help the XPANDER give its passengers more legroom when compared to its competitors.
Adding to the XPANDER's impressive interior features are the fold-flat second and third-row seats, making it the only car in its class which is able to do so. This nifty feature also provides owners with more luggage space and a car-like boot which makes it easier to load larger or longer items.

First Drive: 2020 Mitsubishi XPANDER - An Unexpected 7-Seat Handling King
Quite remarkably, the XPANDER tackles corners with both accuracy and stability while even managing to provide decent mid-corner feedback to the driver. As you’d expect, there is a tendency to understeer if you manage to get it up to speed and come into a corner too hot, but if you tap the brakes to get the chassis just a little unsettled and weight front-biased before turning in, you’d be surprised at how quickly this thing can take a bend and how confidently it carves a tight line. Good thing too that I had the 9.0-inch infotainment system playing a decently awesome rock track via CarPlay to really lean into the mood. It’s 1.5-litre engine is a naturally aspirated four-cylinder MIVEC (good for 105PS and 141Nm) that, if nothing else, is almost bulletproof. It can also be termed as 'adequate' on flat ground, where its refinement is a highlight, but show it a hill and it runs out of breath much too quickly even while carrying just a couple of people, making the four-speed automatic very hesitant to select a lower ratio given how jarring that might be compared to its top gear (fourth).View full review
