Mitsubishi ASX

Mitsubishi is making its range of sought after vehicles accessible to a wider customer base with the introduction of a new, more affordable, ES specification model within the popular ASX range. Slotting in below the two existing models, which will henceforth be badged as LS variants, are two new ES derivatives with manual or CVT transmission options.


These new ES models are perfect for customers looking for a value for money alternative, but who still demand a proven crossover SUV that offers an attractive design, advanced technology, spaciousness, fuel economy and competitive pricing.


High level of exterior specification

Key exterior features include LED headlights and LED daytime running lights as well as LED fog lamps and electrically adjustable foldaway mirrors. At the rear ES models feature LED brake lights, LED taillights, LED reverse lights and a rear spoiler with high-mounted stop lamp.


Inside story

Standout features of ES-specced models include electric windows all round, fabric upholstery and manual air-conditioning. A radio/CD player is standard, while a touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is available as an option.


The rear seats can be folded down in a 60/40 fashion expanding the 406 litre luggage space to 1 206 litres.


Under the bonnet

The new ES models use the same 2.0-litre MIVEC aluminium engine as their LS siblings, which boasts 110kW at 6000rpm and 197Nm at 4200rpm.


Despite its lower price point, Mitsubishi have not skimped on safety. Features include hill start assist, active stability and traction control as well as ABS with brake assist and EBD.


Mitsubishi reinforced body construction is also supplemented by side impact protection beams, a collapsible steering column, brake pedal recession protection and whiplash injury reduction seats. Driver, passenger and knee airbags as well as Isofix child seat anchor points are fitted as standard.


Warranty and pricing

The ASX range is covered by a three-year/100 000km warranty, a three-year 60 000km service plan and three-year unlimited mileage roadside assistance.
