The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross: The ideal Filipino family vehicle

Filipinos are a closely-knit bunch. Family is undoubtedly at the core, with the whole brood trying their best to be present at each stage of everyone’s life. So it’s no surprise that Multipurpose Vehicles like the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross are quite popular nowadays.

Taking its cue from the likes of the Mitsubishi Adventure that was popular during the late 90s up to the mid-2010s, the Xpander Cross mixes 7-seat versatility with MPV utility and even a bit of SUV capability.

How does it do this, you ask? It starts off with a platform that’s just the right size to make it easy for most every member of the family to maneuver—including Mom and Ate. Despite this, it can easily seat 7 passengers on three rows of seats with versatile seating configurations.

The second row seats even slide forward and backward to allow more space for those in the third row. And with numerous cubbyholes and charging ports, everyone will be a happy camper.

Front seat occupants will likewise be pleased with stuff like a 7-inch infotainment display with Bluetooth, USB, Aux-in, and MirrorLink connectivity for Android devices. The driver will likewise be treated to such niceties as cruise control with easy to operate buttons on the steering wheel to help reduce stress.

Its 1.5-liter four-cylinder motor with MIVEC variable valve timing technology with 103bhp and 104lb-ft of torque ensure adequate power for any driving situation, as well as equally decent fuel economy. Plus, its 225mm of ground clearance, McPherson strut with coil spring front and torsion beam rear suspension translate to go-anywhere capability—short of a full-on off-road trail, that is. And it will help get families through flood prone streets during the rainy season.

With a pricetag of P1,255,000, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation is offering the Xpander Cross with easy to own packages. You can get one for just P99,000 all-in downpayment or P25,393 a month for 60 months. And with its Headstart promo, you can even get 2 months free amortization.

So why not consider the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross. It could very well be the ideal vehicle for the Filipino family.
