Dunlop Enasave EC300+ selected for Mitsubishi Xpander in Indonesia.
Sumitomo Rubber is supplying its environmentally friendly Dunlop Enasave EC300+ tyres to Mitsubishi Motor as original equipment on the next-generation Xpander Crossover MPV, the company announced.
Supplied in sizes 185/65R15 88S and 205/55R16 91V for the large crossover, the Dunlop Enasave EC300+ offers improved fuel efficiency thanks to reduced rolling resistance, and superior performance in terms of safety and ride comfort, Sumitomo Rubber said. The 2018 Xpander vehicle that has three rows of seats and accommodates seven passengers was introduced earlier this month in Indonesia at the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS).
The crossover will be exported to select ASEAN markets including Thailand and Philippines and is positioned against the seven-seat Honda BRV, media in the region said. The vehicle’s design is based on the Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield philosophy that focuses primarily on the front fascia. It combines protection and performance in a design that pairs a rugged, sporty appearance with safety features.
