The 2020 Mitsubishi Xpander has made quite a name for itself in Malaysia: it's competitively priced and very practical as well.

Beyond monthly instalments, let's take a look at how much you should expect to pay to maintain Mitsubishi's rally-bred SUV (read this to know why it's not an MPV) over 5 years/100k km.

Mitsubishi Xpander roundup

Priced at RM 91,369 (excluding SST, valid until 31-Dec 2020), the Xpander goes up against the Honda BR-V and Perodua Aruz/Toyota Rush twins.

After 31-December, the Xpander's on-the-road price without road tax and insurance will be priced at RM 94,800.

There has been concerns about the Xpander's 1.5-litre, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder 105 PS / 141 Nm engine, but it makes up for it in power-to-weight ratio. For a deeper dive about that, read this article.

The total cost of maintaining the car at Mitsubihi's official centres over a 5-year/100,000 km period is RM 4,215.38. All prices here are inclusive of 6% SST.

The first relatively expensive service is at the 24-month/40,000 km mark, amounting to RM 546.64. Costs here are bumped up because there'll be air cleaner and brake fluid changes.

Speaking of air-conditioning, the Xpander comes with rear air-cond vents.

Do keep in mind that the most expensive service in the five-year period is at the 36-month/60,000 km interval, costing RM 911.41. The major costs here are the fuel filter change (RM 484.20) and the air-conditioning air-filter which is replaced at every 30,000 km (costs RM 60.30).

The rest of it is made up of the usual engine oil and drain plug washer replacements.
