Unlike the Xplorer, the Xpedition is meant for the road and be a full-fledged family car. In that regard, it’s pretty basic. Sure, you get power steering and an aircon, and a tiny glovebox. But, otherwise there's no real creature comfort to talk about. No power windows, no internal adjustment for the ORVMs, no rear wash and wipe and not a single cup or bottle holder either.
Instead, its list of features include slim door pockets; a simple instrument cluster with just a speedo, a trip meter, and gauges for temperature and fuel level; and a pretty insignificant stowage option in front of the gear lever. But then again, you can't really sell a car without these, now can you?
As for the seats, the bucket options upfront don't offer much support, the ones in the middle are flat and a bit too upright, and the two benches in the boot are, well, benches. Space, however, isn't half bad. The Xpedition can't compete with the never ending Trax range (Toofan and Cruiser), but two up front, two in the middle and two right at the back – one per bench – is comfortably doable.
And if you are wondering about quality and ergonomics and all that sissy car stuff, well, the Xpedition just couldn’t care less. It's a no frills car and it doesn't try to hide it either. Having said that, a basic interior is fine on an SUV like the Xplorer, but for something targeted at families, the level of hygiene content is higher. The good thing is, even though the plastic all round might look and feel cheap, it's not rough edged or sharp to give you paper-cuts.
