The 2024 Mitusbishi XForce, teased in prototype shape with the name XFC. We have now all the information about the vehicle that is geared toward the ASEAN market – and it’s not going to substitute for the ASX without significant changes.
“How can we improve the functionality or performance to meet the demands is the main concern for us at the moment. We’re currently looking into this problem” He added. There’s a chance the XForce will be released to Oz however Wheels is aware that it will only occur if Mitusbishi decides to make significant investments in the upgrading of safety equipment and powertrain.
What is the Mitsubishi XForce?
The 2024 Mitusbishi XForce is a compact SUV built using an existing platform – similar to the ASEAN market Xpander people-mover. It also has a 1.5-litre four-cylinder that is multi-point-injection, producing 77kW/141Nm, and sending drive through the wheels in front through CVT auto-shift – which is a third lower power output than our base variant ASX 2.0-litre. This isn’t exactly the most exciting of options.

The dimensions are pretty similar to the ASX but it’s slightly smaller. With a length of 4390mm and a width of 1810mm, the X-wide XForce is certainly a tiny SUV. It is based on an axle with a wheelbase of 2650mm, can seat five passengers, and tipped the weight at 1245kg. It has a standard suspension with struts on the front and a beam torsion for the back axle. There is no option for an advanced multi-link suspension system like you’d find in the Nissan Qashqai.
With the 2024 Mitusbishi XForce’s sleek and contemporary exterior with sharp LED light and striking lines, you’ll find an interior that is current for the time and is a lot more stylish than the ASX’s. There’s a stylish melange fabric-upholstered insert that sits on the dash, and above it sits an equally-sized 12.3-inch touchscreen that has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. It’s connected to a Yamaha-tuned audio system, and also an 8.0-inch display for the driver’s computer also.
Mitsubishi is sly in calling the style direction for its XForce “best-suited buddy for an exciting life” however, it seems like there’s some significance to the storage space in the cabin. Mitsubishi states that there’s room in the vehicle for bottles that can hold up to 21600mL in the vehicle. A mix of standard USB and USB-C ports that charge fast are available in the cabin to charge devices.
2024 Mitsubishi XForce Release Date
Mitsubishi’s press release doesn’t mention any of the sophisticated driver assist features that are available on the XForce or even mention how many airbags, or an officially-issued safety score. They are not the biggest issues for the ASEAN markets the 2024 Mitusbishi XForce is aiming at.
Also, the 2024 Mitusbishi XForce is constructed around a decrepit engine that isn’t producing the power that Australian customers would want and that’s a shame since the compact SUV’s sleek design and stylish interior could appeal to Australian customers. The current ASX will remain in place for the moment. It is performing very well in the eyes of the Australian population, locating 435 new homes during July. It’s a significant drop from the performance of July last year (858) as well as a drop of 30.7 percent over the past year, although it’s still finding almost as many homes as that of the Volkswagen T-Roc (494 in July).
