From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Mitsubishi ASX

The Mitsubishi ASX has a size which is perfect for a midsize SUV. Neither it is too small to make it feel from one segment below, nor it is too big to make it cumbersome to drive. It is this size and dimensions of the Mitsubishi ASX which makes it friendly to drive as well as park, while giving it a good road presence as well.

For a five-seater midsize SUV, the Mitsubishi ASX feels quite spacious despite not so large size. With raised seating positions, the cabin of Mitsubishi ASX has generous amount of legroom and headroom which makes it comfortable for long drives as well.

The Mitsubishi ASX, being an entry-level midsize SUV, is equipped with a good amount of comfort and convenience features. With the presence of features like panoramic sunroof, push-button start with keyless entry, seven airbags, leather upholstery, and touchscreen infotainment system, the interior cabin of the ASX feels premium.

Proton X70

For a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 feels fairly large and is big enough to put some seven-seater SUVs from one segment above. The Proton X70 is the longest in its class, which dwarfs some SUVs from one segment above, thus giving the Proton X70 a much expensive feel on the outside.

In terms of comfort and convenience, features on the inside, the Proton X70 really outclasses all the SUVs in its category. The X70 feels plush on the inside as well, thanks to the sturdy build quality and impeccable fit and finish, which wasn’t totally expected from a mainstream car maker like Proton.

Due to having the largest dimensions in its category, the Proton X70 feels incredibly spacious when it comes to interior. The legroom, knee room and head room at the rear are comparable to really premium sedans, and thanks to the sliding backrest, the rear seat feels very comfortable even for much longer travel runs.

Mitsubishi ASX

The presence of a good amount of comfort and convenience features do try to uplift the premium appeal of the Mitsubishi ASX on the inside. However, the dull design of the cabin, especially that of the dashboard, makes it look a bit dated.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine which is present beneath the bonnet of the Mitsubishi ASX is quite powerful for a vehicle of this size. However, the engine isn’t as fuel-efficient as one would expect it to be.

The Mitsubishi ASX has been in the market for quite a long time, without much changes jn its exterior design. Due to this, the ASX has started to show its age, which makes it quite difficult to succeed, especially after the fact that there are many new and contemporary designs marking their entry in the midsize SUV segment.

Proton X70

While the Proton X70 is quite big enough giving it an intimidating stance, the overall design is not that eye-catching and distinctive. While the side profile, as well as rear profile, still manages to look quite unique, the front end of the X70 looks quite pale, if going by the segment standards. The grille too looks very simple for a car of this category.

While there is no question on the levels of space on the inside, the rear seat lacks under-thigh support a bit, which robs of some of the comfort to the rear occupants. The short length of the rear bench might be a bit of a trouble to tall passengers.

While the engine feels very responsive and powerful for an SUV this big, the 6-speed automatic transmission of the Proton X70 feels a bit sluggish and doesn’t feel as exciting to drive while shifting gears as in other premium SUVs.
