Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Review
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Overview
The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross was officially launched just last March 2020 as a replacement of the Xpander GLS Sport, the flagship variant of the Xpander nameplate. The new addition to the Xpander lineup is marketed by Mitsubishi Motors Philippines as the younger sibling of the Montero Sport as can be seen in their TV commercial. As a seven-seater MPV, this SUV-looking crossover seats the same number of passengers as it’s midsize sibling and shares some of its good looks and features.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Interior
Inside the Cross is a wide cabin that can already compete with the same comfort level as that of a mid-size SUV. The ergonomic dashboard is fitted with modern features like the tilt and telescopic 3-spoke leather-clad steering wheel and a 7-inch touchscreen that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible and comes standard with GPS navigation. The seats come in two-tone leather and can be reconfigured depending on passenger or cargo space requirements. The second row is a 60:40 split-folding while the third is 50:50 split-folding. As in most MPV design, the Xpander Cross third row is like an afterthought with its cramped legroom. And since this flagship Xpander is being marketed as a versatile family car, it comes fitted with tons of cubbies and cupholders strategically placed throughout the cabin to maximize space and keep the car organized. Besides the usual side pockets on the doors and driver and passenger seatback pockets, there’s underfloor luggage storage at the rear, side pockets, and cup holder on the third row, center console box, and front passenger undertray. Likewise, the 12V power outlet is also scattered throughout the vehicle so passengers can charge their gadgets.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Exterior
The Xpander Cross is being marketed as an alternative to SUV. It carries the same rugged features like the new front grille and bumper design that has its own version of the Dynamic Shield and a robust-looking skid plate that integrates the LED front fog lamps. On the sides are new, a bit angular fender arch and side body molding. At the rear are a pair of LED combination tail lamps, rear garnish, and a massive spoiler with stop lamp. On top is a shark fin antenna for a modern look and roof rails. The Cross rides on a set of 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels wrapped in 205/ 55 R17 rubber. This flagship MPV is longer and wider than the rest of the Xpander model and measures 4,500 mm long, 1,800 mm wide, 1,750 tall, and has a wheelbase of 2,775 mm. It’s best in class ground clearance measures 225 mm, a full 20 – 25 mm higher than the rest of the variant and is even higher than the 218 mm ground clearance of the Montero Sport. The Xpander line comes in six color options but only four are available for this top of the line MPV. Sunrise Orange is exclusive solely to the Xpander Cross while the other three options are the Quartz White Pearl, Sterling Silver Metallic, and Graphite Gray.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Ride & Handling
Driving the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross in paved urban roads is a breeze but with the front-wheel-drive the only option, it can be a bit arduous on more rugged conditions despite the higher ground clearance and limited gear power. This MPV handles itself very well when it comes to cruising and tackling turns. The suspension system is a combination of MacPherson Strut with coil spring and stabilizer at the front and torsion beam at the rear to for cushioning passengers. Comfort is comparable to SUV if you are sitting in the first or second row. Third-row passengers would feel cramped on long rides and is not ideal for full size, grown adult passengers. Although, parents would find the last row fit for small children without them feeling restricted and is safer due to lack of doors.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Engine & Fuel Consumption
The new Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is fitted with the same 4A91 engine, just like the rest of the Xpander line. The 1.5L inline 4 DOHC 16 valves with MIVEC engine can deliver a maximum of 103 hp of power at 6,000 rpm and 141 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. The 1,499cc gasoline engine uses an electronic controlled injection multi-point injection (ECI-MULTI) fuel system and is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the two front wheels.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Braking & Safety
When it comes to active and passive safety systems as well as driver-assist features, this Mitsubishi MPV is adequately equipped. There’s the push start button, active stability control, traction control, hill start assist, cruise control, ISOFIX, and tether anchors for child and booster seats. For brakes, the Xpander Cross uses a combination of 15-inch ventilated discs at the front and 9-inch leading and trailing drums at the back. It also comes with an anti-lock braking system, electronic brakeforce distribution, and 10-inch master vacuum brake booster. One of the critical issues with the Xpander Cross is, it only comes with two SRS airbags. There are no side or curtain airbags for second and third-row passengers. Although 3 pt. ELR seatbelts are available in all three rows.
Mitsubishi Xpander Cross Verdict
A versatile family car that can endure both city driving and rough weekend adventures. The Xpander Cross is a good vehicle option for couples or small family with children that loves traveling in and out of the metro. The ample safety features and how the cabin is able to maximize space keeps this small family hauler a good spot on the top.
