Left-Hand Drive Mitsubishi XForce: Will it make a left turn to the Philippines?

Vietnam has recently welcomed the new Mitsubishi XForce, a left-hand drive (LHD) SUV, and is the first left-hand drive (LHD) market in Southeast Asia to welcome the stylish B-SUV. The arrival of the SUV in Vietnam did not prevent Filipinos from talking, as the Philippines, like Vietnam, drives on the right side of the road as well. 

The XForce includes a 1.5-liter MIVEC engine and CVT combination, aiming to have both power and fuel economy. With 104 PS and 141 Nm of torque, it's made for the usual city driving most Filipinos do, but with enough fuel for occasional longer trips. 


What makes the XForce particularly attractive for the Philippine market is probably its 222mm ground clearance that comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, making it ready to take on the rough road conditions in the country. 


On the inside, the XForce has a comfortable and tech-laden cabin, with a digital instrument set and a large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which are likely to appeal to Filipinos. The XForce also comes with a camera to help you see when you drive in reverse and settings to adjust the drive for different kinds of roads and weather. Moreover, the SUV even has a feature that helps keep the car from sliding around, which is great for when the roads get wet or are not in the best shape.

Since the Philippines is one of the countries where Mitsubishi sells cars the most, it makes sense that the new XForce might be sold here, as well. The fact that the car is already set up for left-hand driving may already be a big hint that it would soon make a left turn to the Philippines. While there's no official news yet,  Filipinos looking for a new SUV might already find a lot to like about the XForce. For now, you may take a look at the current lineup and get a quote for the SUV of your choice.
