2022 Mitsubishi Xpander
Externally, the restyled Xpander can be recognized by the new head optics with a T-shaped lower section, new rims with a diameter of up to 17 inches and more massive bumpers, with the appearance of which the front overhang increased by 75 mm and the rear by 45 mm. In addition, the ground clearance has significantly increased – now it varies from 220 to 225 mm, which is one of the best indicators in the class.
The three-row interior of a compact van in simple trim levels has not changed, but in expensive versions there is a new front panel with a better finish, a new steering wheel, a center armrest, a redesigned climate control unit, a new media system with expanded online capabilities and a long-awaited electromechanical “handbrake” that replaced traditional bulky “poker”.
The new Xpander also features a highly efficient CVT that delivers powerful and fast acceleration with hard pedal pressure and smooth shifting with high fuel efficiency and quiet when light pressure is applied. An Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system has been introduced to achieve lower fuel consumption without sacrificing performance. The MPV was also equipped with an electric parking brake with an auto hold function, and the suspension settings were revised and improved.
