The Mitsubishi ASX SUV is one of the mainstays of the manufacturer’s line-up of vehicles since 2010 and has seen a notable update this year. Competing with the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, this 5-seat, the 4-door vehicle has become one of the most popular models in the burgeoning small SUV sector. And with the recent purchase of the Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer by the Nissan Renault Alliance, this vehicle is expected to even undergo more upgrades in the coming years. Now, what great perks will you actually get from purchasing a new Brisbane Mitsubishi ASX today?
- Innovative Exterior Design
The pragmatic exterior design of the ASX may not always get bystanders’ heads turning, but it has indeed built a significant base of owners who appreciate its looks. For the 2017 model, the vehicle received a new treatment for its bar and grille, lower door sills, over-fenders, and rear lower bumper to align with the rest of Mitsubishi’s line-up of vehicles, giving it a bit of an off-roader impression.
- Practical Interior Space
As a standard, the ASX has five seats all in all. Like the new Mitsubishi Triton for sale Brisbane has, it shares largely the same interior dimensions as other large vehicles from Mitsubishi.
- Excellent Features
The 2017 Brisbane Mitsubishi ASX is equipped with a number of modern features that you would want from a new SUV. Just to name a few, it has a keyless entry, push button start, reversing camera with parking sensors, climate control air conditioning, Bluetooth-ready multimedia screen, steering wheel-mounted audio and phone controls, heated front seats, and halogen headlights and fog lights. In terms of safety, all ASX models are rated “5” out of “5” on the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) scale.
- Typical Engine and Transmission
The ASX comes in LS and XLS grades across five models across, with both lines having models running on petrol and diesel. Basically, Mitsubishi has added the 2.2-litre 4-cylinder turbo-diesel from its Outlander to the both grades, with direct injection common rail oiler that is rated at 110kW of power. As for the transmission, the base LS petrol can have a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT), while the FWD XLS has CVT only. Maintenance of these parts during ownership should be done only with an authorised Mitsubishi service centre Brisbane has.
- Good Fuel Economy and Capacity
During an official trial, the ASX LS petrol rated at 7.4 litres per 100 kilometres on its combined fuel economy cycle, while recording 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres after 330 kilometres of the dash. As for the ASX XLS diesel, it rated at 6 litres per 100 kilometres on its combined fuel economy cycle, while recording 7.2 litres per 100 kilometres after 300 kilometres of the dash. Tank capacity of both petrol and diesel models is 63 litres.
Much like other popular Mitsubishi models, such as the Lancer, the ASX has been continuing to sell due to the big bang for the buck it gives its owners. While some people are looking for bigger SUVs, others are noticing what the smaller and stylised crop of small SUVs on the market can offer.
