Mitsubishi also updates Xpander Cross for 2022
Updated on October 02 2023
A few days ago, Mitsubishi presented the 2022 Xpander with a new look and changes inside and out. However, that's not the only model they updated. The Xpander Cross also gets some changes as well. So what have they done to the new MPV Crossover? Let's take a closer look at the 2022 model.
From the outside, it doesn't look like Mitsubishi touched the design of the Xpander Cross. However, a closer look revealed one very minor update that might be enough to differentiate it from the outgoing version. As far as the exterior goes, only the grille is new for 2022. For those who were hoping for more changes, there are more of that inside.
Like the standard model, the Xpander Cross gets the new dashboard, instrument cluster, and steering wheel. The Cross also gets special leather seats that Mitsubishi calls Heat Guard.
These seats are designed to resist heat even if the vehicle has been parked under the sun. Mitsubishi also got rid of the traditional handbrake by replacing it with an electronic parking brake. Like the standard Xpander, the new Xpander Cross finally has an armrest at the front.
The new model still uses the 1.5-liter engine with 105 PS and 141 Nm of torque. However, it's hooked up to a new transmission. Mitsubishi has finally removed the four-speed automatic and replaced it with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). That means you can expect it to have even better fuel consumption.
We will have to wait a little longer for the new Xpander Cross to arrive in the Philippines. But with that, you can expect used prices to go down.
