Mitsubishi has revealed a new vehicle called the Xpander Cross and the good news it is on its way to South Africa

Touted as a 'family-friendly crossover MPV', the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is a fresh and modern product which will be going up against things like the Toyota Rush and Honda BR-V when it arrives. 

Powered by a 1.5-litre motor and mated to a choice of either manual or automatic transmission, the Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is claimed to be the quietest vehicle in its class. Outputs are rated at 77 kW and 141 Nm. Despite it lacking 4x4 ability, the vehicle still boasts impressive ground clearance of 225 mm. 

The Mitsubishi Xpander Cross is a 7-seater with practicality in mind. The 2nd and 3rd row of seats can be folded down to create a large storage area. In terms of features, Mitsubishi claims its Xpander Cross features a steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustment, cruise control, programmable exterior lighting to offer features such as Welcome and Coming Home illumination, comfort flasher and headlamp auto-off, high-contrast colour instrument cluster and best-in-class air conditioning with highly effective cooling. 

We'll have final confirmation on specification and pricing soon. “Mitsubishi Motors South Africa started with the homologation process in preparation of the imminent launch of this vehicle in SA.” says Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa.
