Mitsubishi Xpander Coming to Malaysia This Year
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has confirmed that the much-anticipated Mitsubishi Xpander will be launched in Malaysia this year. The seven-seat MPV was spotted at a local dealership a few weeks ago.
First introduced in 2017, the Xpander has been enjoying enormous success in neighbouring countries including Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Based on the spyshots, it is most likely that we are getting the facelifted version.
However, a launch date as well as specifications and pricing for the Xpander have yet to be announced. What we do know is the MPV comes with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 103 hp and 114 Nm of torque, and a four-speed automatic. A five-speed manual transmission is also available but there’s a fat chance it will be offered here.
Check out the press release for more information:
MITSUBISHI MOTORS MALAYSIA (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, announced that the new Mitsubishi XPANDER, a seven-seater crossover, will be launched in Malaysia this year.
Following the success of the new XPANDER launch in Indonesia, MITSUBISHI MOTORS CORPORATION (MMC) rolled out the new XPANDER across the ASEAN region.
The new XPANDER follows the iteration of the ‘Dynamic Shield’ front design concept, which is incorporated in every newly launched Mitsubishi car. The ‘Dynamic Shield’ expresses high performance and a sense of protection for the driver and passengers.
The new XPANDER blends functionality with an adventurous SUV-inspired styling. Its ruggedness and roominess, character and convenience, style and functionality are fused and expanded into this crossover, making it a suitable car for every Malaysian lifestyle.
“The XPANDER is not just an important model for MMM, but across the ASEAN region as well. As of June 2020, the car has reached cumulative sales of around 256,000 units. The success of the XPANDER in our neighbouring countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam reflects how well-suited this car is to meet the needs of Malaysian customers. MMM is very excited for a thrilling year ahead with the introduction of this impressive seven-seater crossover in Malaysia later this year,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
The XPANDER has won multiple awards in ASEAN countries. Some of the prominent awards won were ”2018 Car of the Year” by Otomotif Awards 2018 in Indonesia, ”Philippines 2019 Automobile of the year in the Standard Category” by Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards and “Thailand Car of the Year 2019 and 2020: THE BEST MPV UNDER 1,600 c.c.” by Grand Prix International PLC.
