Mitsubishi unveiled the all-new XForce SUV at the 30th edition of GIIAS (Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show). The SUV will be available in Indonesia initially, followed by numerous ASEAN countries, including Vietnam and the Philippines, as well as South Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. It is based on the XFC Concept, which debuted late last year at the Vietnam Auto Show and boasts a commanding road presence and rugged appearance. It features a class-leading 222mm of ground clearance and measures 4,390mm in length, 1,810mm in width, and 1,660mm in height. As for the amenities, the all-new XForce sports a 12.3-inch infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, dual-zone climate control, multiple USB ports, smartphone holders, etc.
Right now, there has been no formal confirmation of Mitsubishi's return to India. As a result, the introduction of this all-new SUV on our market is doubtful. With the introduction of the XForce model, it has shifted its focus to markets like Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia, where it will grow its SUV portfolio. Here are some more details of this globally introduced SUV.
Mitsubishi XForce SUV: Design & Interior Features
The SUV resembles the 2022 Mitsubishi XFC Concept in terms of appearance and internal design but with slightly fewer amenities. The grille, bold LED lighting units on both ends and sculpted bodywork give it a modern and muscular appearance.
A 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster are integrated into the dashboard. The seats are constructed of stain-resistant fabric and can be reclined in the rear. The Dynamic Sound Yamaha Premium sound system with eight speakers is another interior standout. Also, there are also multiple USB outlets, smartphone holders, a refrigerated storage section, and more features inside.
Mitsubishi XForce SUV: Powertrain
As for mechanical details, the SUV is powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine that produces 104hp and 141Nm. A CVT gearbox exclusively transmits power to the front axle. Although a front-wheel-drive vehicle, the SUV features four drive modes (Normal, Wet, Gravel, and Mud) and is equipped with Mitsubishi's famous Active YAW Control technology.
