Mitsubishi Teases Production Version Of XM MPV Concept

| |

Mitsubishi will reveal a new small MPV, to be reportedly named Expander, at the upcoming Indonesia Auto Show.

The new model will be basically the production version of last year’s XM Concept and will blend the practicality and versatility of an MPV with the style of an SUV according to Mitsubishi.

The new model is styled after Mitsubishi’s latest design language, featuring the characteristic front grille, L-shaped taillights and sharp creases on its sides.

The new Mitsubishi Expander will be produced at the company’s new factory in Indonesia. Power will come from a 1.5-liter petrol engine mated to a CVT gearbox that features six virtual ratios in manual mode, according to the local Autonetmagz.

The interior will reportedly host three rows of seats for up to seven passengers and despite the compact dimensions.

We still don’t know if there are any plans for Mitsubishi to offer the new Expander outside select Asian markets but we’ll find out once it debuts on August 10.
