Mitsubishi Xpander Proves Class-Leading Fuel Efficiency with Fuel Economy Drive

The Mitsubishi Xpander is the most fuel efficient car in its class, according to the results of a new test overseen by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP).

Two Xpander variants–a GLX MT and a GLS Sport AT–were driven simultaneously with four other competitive models along the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX). The methodology and parameters used on this activity were based on the Fuel Economy Drive used by the Department of Energy (DOE).

To ensure fairness in conducting and obtaining the results, the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) represented by Francisco F. Reyes, Jr. monitored and supervised the whole run.

Each of the six vehicles ran an average distance of 236.58 kilometers and the results showed the Xpander’s superiority among its competitors when it comes to fuel efficiency and performance. The Xpander GLX MT recorded an impressive 21.01 km/L fuel consumption while the Xpander GLS Sport AT recorded an amazing 22.94 km/L after the run.

This was better than all of the Xpander’s competitors, including the diesel models. The third placed model recorded 19.8km/L and the least fuel efficient of the group was measured at 17.4 km/L.

With these findings, the Xpander’s 1.5-liter 4A91 MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control System) DOHC 16-valve engine was proven to be fuel efficient without compromising the performance of the vehicle, which makes it an ideal vehicle for Filipino customers.

    I think not, Xpander is NOT the most fuel efficient in its classs.
    Honda BR-V is the most powerful and fuel efficient 7 Seater SUV with a 120 hp /145 Nm of torque, a CVT Navi with Sport mode 7-speed paddle shifter and a CVT is known to be more fuel efficient than to a regular AT.
    Its way behind with the BRV in terms of power and fuel efficiency.

    Based on experience. it is not fuel efficient as what mitsubishi is bragging about…
    Mine registered 12 to 14 km/l at long distance and 8 to 10 km/l in city driving.
