Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia today announced that the Mitsubishi XPANDER Seven-Seater Crossover will arrive on our roads this year, but just not exactly when.
After Indonesia, Malaysia is next in line to receive Mitsubishi's latest people carrier, the Mitsubishi XPANDER. If you've been following us, you would have already seen spyshots of the XPANDER in Malaysia so the launch date cannot be that far away.
With expanding waistlines and families our local market is ripe for a seven-seater crossover that blends functionality with an adventurous SUV-inspired styling. Its ruggedness and roominess, character and convenience plus style should further adhere it to a discerning Malaysian public.
The new XPANDER follows the iteration of the ‘Dynamic Shield’ front design concept, which is incorporated in every newly launched Mitsubishi car. The ‘Dynamic Shield’ expresses high performance and a sense of protection for the driver and passengers.
“The XPANDER is not just an important model for MMM, but across the ASEAN region as well. As of June 2020, the car has reached cumulative sales of around 256,000 units. The success of the XPANDER in our neighbouring countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam reflects how well-suited this car is to meet the needs of Malaysian customers. MMM is very excited for a thrilling year ahead with the introduction of this impressive seven-seater crossover in Malaysia later this year,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
We must say the SUV segment is gearing up for an exciting battle in the second half of 2020/ early 2021 with the likes of the Proton X50, Toyota Corolla Cross and the Perodua D55L all scheduled to be launched.
