Earlier this year, images of what appeared to be the refreshed Mitsubishi Xpander made their way on to the internet. While it may look like the it did not receive any changes, Mitsubishi instead opted to give the Xpander subtle exterior enhancements, along with a new set of alloy wheels.
Now Mitsubishi Motors Indonesia has launched the 2020 Xpander and, well, it seems the changes are very minor indeed.
Keen-eyed observers will immediately notice that the Xpander's face gets a slight makeover thanks to what Mitsubishi calls a 'more dynamic' front grill. In addition, higher-grade models of the Xpander are now available with LED headlights instead of halogen units. Finally, top-of-the-line models now come with new five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels.
Apart from the exterior, Mitsubishi was also busy making tweaks inside the 2020 Xpander. While no cabin photos were released, the automaker claims that there are new beige-colored seats available for high-trim variants. The all-black finish is still available although Mitsubishi mentioned it now adopts a new seat pattern for a sportier look. New faux wood and silver accents have been fitted as well for a classier look. A new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment, a rear backup sensor, as well as a rear defogger are now available on the 2020 Xpander.
The 1.5-liter 4A91 four-cylinder engine continues to power the Xpander. It can be mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission. Power remains at 105 PS along with 141 Nm of torque.
Mitsubishi will begin selling the 2020 Xpander in Indonesia starting in March 2020 before being exported to other markets. With that in mind, perhaps the Philippine market might soon get it within the year. For now, all we can do is patiently wait for its (eventual) arrival in the country. Let's hope it's not going to be a long wait.
