Mitsubishi Motors to launch next-gen MPV in Indonesia
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is set to make its Next-Generation multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) the star of its line-up at the 25th GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from Aug. 10 to Aug. 20.
The all-new MPV is produced at the MMC’s new Indonesian factory in Bekasi Prefecture, West Java Province, and will be launched on the Indonesian market in fall of 2017. Its name will be announced at the show.
Once it reaches the Philippine market, the new MPV will likely go up against a tough field of competitors in the small MPV segment.
Cebu Daily News shared teaser photos of the MPV last month from MMC’s Facebook page. Just shortly after that, MMC released clearer photos of the MPV just weeks before its global launch in Indonesia.
According to MMC, the new Next-Generation MPV “combines the best of both SUV and MPV worlds: ruggedness and roominess, character and convenience, style and function, all in a bold design that could impress all around the world.”
MMC also said in a press release that the new MPV is “built to delight Indonesia’s most demanding small MPV owners.”
“Up to seven occupants will travel in comfort, with generous room for luggage or cargo, all at a competitive price. MMC’s new Next-Generation MPV delivers class-topping roominess and utility through its highly variable interior, with easy access to comfortable third-row seats, along with a spacious luggage compartment, all in the spirit of Japanese Monozukuri fine craftsmanship.”
The new seven-seater MPV will have a distinctive design that incorporates Mitsubishi MPV and SUV lines for Mitsubishi-ness at first sight. The vehicle will be powered by a 1.5-liter engine with either a manual or automatic transmission.
