MITSUBISHI Motors Philippines’ best-selling MPV (multi-purpose vehicle), the Mitsubishi Xpander, was hailed as the “2019-2020 Auto Focus Automobile of the Year” (AOY) in the standard category during the awarding ceremony of the 2019-2020 Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards (AFPCA) at the Palms Country Club, Alabang.
The AFPCA, organized by Sunshine Television (STV) and now on its 15th edition, is an annual public poll that aims to determine the country’s most popular automobile brands and models. It features a unique scoring system that attributes 80 percent value to public votes and 20 percent to unit sales.
The People’s Choice Awards also enables the buying public to rate the cars, not just by technical expertise and testing, but more from votes of actual car owners and the buying public, as well as the motoring media who are able to test these vehicles and rate them using their own criteria.
The Xpander also won as the “Model of the Year” and “Best Design” for the MPV category. A testament that the Xpander is a versatile vehicle that delivers impressive form and function.
MMPC’s First Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Alvin Dalida, was present to receive the awards.
“We are very proud that the Xpander has been well received by the consumers. These awards further validates the Xpander’s top position in its segment and encourages us to continue to provide quality vehicles for the people,” he said.
