Motoring Review: A New Look for the All-New Mitsubishi ASX, and a Better Deal for You!
With a new look, new technology and a new more powerful engine, the Mitsubishi ASX now adopts Mitsubishi’s latest Dynamic Shield front design language with LED headlights and taillights.
Mitsubishi has also designed a fresh rear skid plate finished in silver to make the ASX seem a bit more rugged. A similar change has been made at the front bumper to complete the look. Also at the back, LED taillights work with conventional turn indicators in the reconfigured tail lamps, while a new rear fascia and bumper design deletes a lot of chrome work and sharpens its visage. All of this, plus even better deals and lower costs for the lucky buyers …
The 2.0 litre engine gives all the power needed for all trips. MIVEC technology allows the engine to combine maximum power output, fuel efficiency, and environmental performance. The advanced suspension makes driving on rough roads smooth and comfortable, while the shock absorbers and stabilisers are precision-tuned for responsive handling and sporty, comfortable performance.
On the road, drivers can choose between three driving modes to best match your preferred driving style, for fuel-efficient driving and for outstanding 4WD performance. The engine delivers effortless acceleration from any speed. The Active Stability Control system uses onboard sensors to analyse the vehicle’s motion and identify lateral wheel slippage. By governing engine output and applying braking power to the appropriate wheels, ASC helps to maintain stability and control. In addition, a gear shift indicator in the multi-information display recommends the best shift timing for current driving conditions.
There’s plenty of room for five passengers and cargo, and easy to use for any driver. The wide tailgate opening and low cargo floor make the loading and unloading of cargo fuss-free for everybody.
Passengers can enjoy the view with the panoramic glass roof, and at night, the roof is attractively illuminated with LED lamps. Roof rails accentuate the rugged yet sporty lines of the ASX.
