2019 Mitsubishi Xpander review GLS SPORT PHILIPPINES


good morning everyone! in this video we are going to review 2019 mitsubishi xpander gls sport im RM and im Ellaine and we are giving you our experiences and reviews on both cars and motorcycles and we are RIDING IN TANDEM! lets start with the front end you can see the wind shield, it is enormous which means our field of vision is fantastic! going down to the hood it is very small which means that they really xpanded the space inside the xpander unlike other cars with large hoods, they dont maximize the space from the hood going down this is not the headlights this is DRLs or daytime running lights or park lights usually you see in other cars they have really big headlights which results to great illumination of the road at night in this case it looks like a small headlight but the truth is, it really has big headlights! it’s here at the bumper its like the nissan juke but this has better execution going down again there are foglamps and this is the defining feature of the GLS sport to other xpander models, the chin. for us this really looks good, it completes the look, having none of this seems like something is missing now this is the side profile you can see this line it is a very noticeable feature mostly other cars have lines but it has no continuity as you can see here the door handles also follow this line lets go to the back you see this black part, it breaks plainness its like having an enormous spoiler at the back we love this design and going down, it has 205mm of ground clearance at the back you already have a spoiler gone are the days that you have to buy it separately going down again you can see the tail lights it looks hi tech! there are fibers of light that looks good you can relly appreciate it at night i will post a picture here plus down here theres already a skirt also it looks nice now lets go inside where is the key?! what key?! you dont need that anymore! just have it in your pocket and press the button here thats good already see?! whaaaattttt?!?!?!? now lets go to the interior! its all black plastic which looks durable and sporty it also has silver accents and we love it take a look now lets go to my side there are cup holders here there is a compartment here its deep you can fit lots of stuff here but there is no center arm rest there are storage here for small umbrellas there is also storage here, the glove compartment plus space for water bottles, space here here and here also there is space here here and here you wont lose spaces for stuff here, but you will lose stuff in these spaces for sure the aircon is manual, no climate control here there are aircon vents here here and here at the back there are 4 aircon vents also now lets do a space test! im 5 feet 8 inches tall there is still some legroom here this is my normal driving position the headroom is also big we tried the toyota rush and my head is very close to the aircon blower ok, lets move at the back we are here at the 2nd row seat, you can see there is still space for my knees also my headroom is good what we didnt see earlier, it has storages here also for water bottles and stuff these are the 4 aircon vents separate controls if your passengers want the ac colder there is a mount here for seatbelt for the middle passenger 5 persons with seatbelts plus 2 seatbelts at the 3rd row as you can see our baby he’s enjoying the space here lets move to the 3rd row here you can see the seatbelts cup holders here and on the other side there is also a power supply here and then the space, i repeat i am 5’8 i can fit inside but my knees are touching the seats if you are going short distances this is fine if you are going long distances this will do but you have to take a rest every 1-2 hrs but this is still good now lets move to the space at the back you can see here, this is low so you wont have trouble loading baggages here the space is ok for overnight stuff maybe 4 large backpacks but if you need more space, you can fold this now you have more space and still a passenger at the back you need more space? just fold this this is enormous already but if you need more space, you can fold that and that also and if you need more space you can also fold the front seat! so now what? are you hauling all the stuff in your house? all of that can fit here except the refrigerator! not only that! i forgot here is also space here! for your extra slipper, clothes or other stuff this is fantastic! one more about the space i dont know what the engineers did but at mitsubishi i tried the montero sport and this back to back the space was comparabe with only a few millimeters difference only the front seat, the back is a different story but if you sum it up, the montero is a lot bigger on the outside dimensions look its very spacious ok now we go to my favorite part or feature the radio if you look at it it looks like a tablet all touch screen there is also a reverse camera and the big screen helps a lot i can see everything at the back very convenient and in my experience, i have difficulty driving in reverse specially the xpander is a little bit long i have tried a pickup but this has a bigger screeen now lets turn it on as you can see this is how it looks like just press the pre set channels and you can also do manual scanning just slide it here and there is a home button in the home button there is navigation radio, easy link multimedia and settings in the navigation, for those who use waze this has bigger screen its easier to see the map here unlike in the phone it is small then in multimedia there is video music bluetooth and aux and like a phone it has a scroll down menu there is wi fi and other settings like brightness you can also clear memory here and you can put applications i really like this because i am somewhat techy this was the first thing i checked out when we got this now lets try the expander where is the key? what key?! you dont need that already just press on the BRAKES ok press the brakes then press the start button it will turn on whaaattt?!?!?!? so just press on the brakes and press the start button wow its like magic wait lets do it again wow wow this ride is fantastic but i am wondering this has only 4 speed automatic and only 1.5liter displacement maybe its slow what do you think? lets try it out! lets do a test drive! lets go! now while driving you can feel the noise vibration and harshness levels are noticeable but its not bad not too noisy but noticeable as you can see the windshield and windows are big its easy to drive you can see everything and the a-pillar is thin unlike other cars you have to do like this to see the other side and also there is glass here at the front of the side mirror you can really see there is no blind spot here and the side mirrors are huge really easy to drive! fantastic then lets go to the steering its very soft and its very easy to turn even doing u turns is easy now the response from stop here lets see its not slow it accelerates good enough only 1.5L but it has power but of course it wont compare to 2.0L cars like the kia sportage 2.0, it has ample pulling power and speed compared to this but if used for ferrying the family, this is good enough and if you are in legal speeds, it can handle it with no problems and what i noticed also is the braking the initial bite is lacking but if you press it some more, you can also feel the braking power now the suspension, it is soft unlike pickups like the kia sportage the suspension is harder. the xpander is softer we feel sleepy when using this car the other one the suspension is harder now we tried it in the city, lets try it of the expressway now we are here at the expressway we are running at 90kph our rev is a little over 2000rpm no problem at speed, 90-100kph the thing i noticed is the road noise its noticeable and wait im going to change lanes the other thing i noticed is you can feel the crosswinds on the steering wheel the steering wheel slightly moves its not as steady as the other bigger cars but this is what got us again we are running 90kph there are other cars costlier than this without cruise control just press this button and press down im not doing anything anymore! ook at my feet! its just going automatically pickups and other cars dont have this feature its like magic! easier for long drives even if you press the gas the cruise control is still on even if you accelereate its still on we are doing 100kph its still good the only problem is the crosswinds you can feel it if it is strong if you press the brakes the cruise control will stop just press up if you want to go to the set speed again now what can i say with this car!? its good in the city and in the hiway need i say more?! there are also other special featues of the xpander like abs ebd airbag, hill start assist isofix, active stability control and many more so just google what these acronyms mean thats it! so guys for those who wants to buy the xpander dont think twice! just go ahead and buy it go to your nearest mitsubishi dealer and get one now thank you for watching we hope you continue waching us and i hope this video helped you please like and subscribe! for comments and suggestions just comment below thank you!
