    Pros

    Better features

    The interior of the Xpander Cross shares pretty much the same features as the newly launched Black Series variant as well as the GLS trim for the three-spoke steering wheel that’s wrapped in leather with brown stitching.

    Speaking of interiors…

    Spacious interior

    The Xpander Cross has a spacious cabin that can offer seats for a large Filipino family. The seven-seater MPV has enough leg and headroom to keep its passengers comfortable for both short trips and long rides.

    There’s also 150-liters of boot space at the back to keep your luggage.

    Bigger dimensions

    All that space comes at a premium as only the Xpander Cross, compared to other variants, comes with larger dimensions.

    The other three variants — the GLX, GLS, and the Black Series — all measure 4,475mm long and 1,750mm wide. The Xpander Cross however is 4,500mm long and 1,800mm wide. Plus, it’s the tallest among the bunch standing at 1,750mm.

    Cons

    Pricier

    With great features come great responsibilities, financially that is. The Xpander Cross is priced at P1,255,000, a little more expensive even when compared to top-tier MPVs from other brands.

    For reference, the Toyota Avanza Veloz has a sticker price of P1,077,000 while the range-topping variant of the Suzuki Ertiga will set you back P923,000.

    Verdict

    The Xpander Cross is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. But those looking for an aggressive-looking MPV that offers enough room for everyone in the family should definitely consider the Xpander Cross from Mitsubishi.
