    That looks like the one. I wonder why Mitsubishi Motors North America isn't importing that?

    And how about that styling?

    That pic is better. I'm suprised all that fits on a mirage platform? Are they popular in your area?

    I don't think Xpander is on the Mirage platform. Xpander is on the NC1W platform. Mirage is A00 or A10 (G4). Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also, the Xpander employs a 1.5-liter mill, not the 1.2 (or 1.0).

    The Xpander uses the 4 cylinder version of our motor 4A91. It has the same bore and stroke as our 3A92. It's basically the Mirage engine with another cylinder.

    Xpander looks about the size of a Mazda 5. More aggro face, though. Because grrr.

    I was just thinking the same thing, so I looked it up. The Mazda5 (Mazda Premacy in other places) was 5 inches longer, same width, and 3 inches lower (122mm longer, 74mm lower). The Mazda was also 700lb (320kg) heavier.

    I never saw that many of the little 3-row Mazdas around here. I only ever climbed into one once, and I remember thinking it was pretty tight inside.

    The news was inaccurate, it's not the same platform as our mirage.
    Yes, this medium size MPVs are most selling cars in Indonesia.

    FYI the Eclipse Cross 4B40TC engine is based off of the 4A91 engine. It has the same bore and stroke but allot more stuff on it.
