Recent Updates of Mitsubishi ASX

The Mitsubishi ASX was first launched in Malaysia in 2010 as an import. Since 2014 Mitsubishi started assembling the compact SUV in the country itself. This brought its price down and suddenly turned it into a value for money product. The ASX has now been refreshed for 2018 but the new version is not yet available in the Malaysian market.

Available in 4WD or 2WD variants, the SUV is a small sub 4.5m long SUV that has good equipment levels for its price of RM 112399 and RM 126739 for the 2WD and the 4WD respectively. Power comes from a 2L 16 valve inline 4 with MIVEC and multi-point fuel injection. The same engine is also used in the Lancer GT. Peak power output is 150 PS and 197 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted through Mitsubishi’s INVECS-III CVT with 6-step Sports Mode.

Overview

Mitsubishi has been in the Malaysian market for quite some time now. But for some unknown reason, it doesn’t have that many products available in the country. In that short list of cars, we have the Mitsubishi ASX. This compact SUV has earned its name in the local market over its years of existence. It comes in both 2WD and 4WD variants, both of them features Mitsubishi’s 2.0L MIVEC engine. The ASX isn’t the most attractive model that is present in this segment, but it surely does brings a good value for your money.

Interior & Features

Just like the exterior, the interior of the Mitsubishi ASX has been designed to be a simple yet functional layout. Seated into the driver’s seat you’ll notice a good amount of visibility around. The dashboard is nicely laid out allowing a good front view. Also, the high seating position gives you a commanding driving position and inspires confidence in you to drive more passionately and confidently. The layout of all the switchgear and buttons is ergonomically designed and is well within the reach of the driver.

The seats of the Mitsubishi ASX are quite comfortable and offer a good amount of support. They’re wrapped in leather, and so is the steering wheel. The steering wheel also features a few mounted controls that allow you to manage your audio and enable or disable cruise control. Behind the steering wheel is a nicely put meter cluster that has clear and legible digits. There’s also a MID screen in the middle to show various other information.

The centre of the dashboard has got a touchscreen infotainment system that supports AUX and USB connectivity options. It also has navigation and features VAPS (Virtual Acoustic Positioning System). Below the touchscreen are the controls for the fully automatic climate control system.

Exterior

Just as we mentioned earlier, the Mitsubishi ASX isn’t the most attractive cars that you can buy in this segment. There are other rivals that would make you think twice before spending your money to buy the ASX. So, why should you consider the ASX? It is because of its simplicity. If you like to keep things simple yet functional and practical, then you and Mitsubishi ASX would go a long way.

Mitsubishi has kept the design of the ASX to a minimum. The front fascia of the car features nicely designed pair of headlamps, that aren’t LEDs but conventional halogen bulbs. They do, however, get projectors. The front grille and bumper carry a design that somehow manages to give the nose of the ASX an aggressive appearance. The chrome surround around the front grille is also a nice touch. The fog lamps are situated in the front bumper and are surrounded by a strip of C-shaped LED daytime running lights.

The side profile of the Mitsubishi ASX has got balanced proportions. The sizeable wheel arches are prominent, and so is the strong character line that runs from the front door to the rear end of the car and silently meets the tail light cluster. Talking about the tail lights, they are two-piece combination units that are quite good-looking and fills up space at the rear pretty neatly. The black cladding all around the car gives a sporty and off-road-ish look. We also like the roof-mounted rear spoiler for that extra sportiness.

Ride & Handling

The suspension setup at the front wheels of the Mitsubishi ASX sees MacPherson Strut Coil Springs with Stabiliser and Multi-link Coil Springs with Stabiliser at the rear. The overall ride quality of the ASX is pretty decent. It handles city driving with ease. Highway driving is also something that you shouldn’t be worried about. However, it won’t live up to your expectations if you’re driving it enthusiastically around corners and demanding that much more because it isn’t meant to tackle the curves like a sports car. It is a compact SUV and it does its job well.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the hood of the Mitsubishi ASX is a 2.0L MIVEC engine that produces 150 PS of max power at 6,000 rpm and the peak torque of 197 Nm kicks in at 4,200 rpm. The engine is mated to a CVT unit for the transfer of power either two or four wheels depending on the variant you pick as the ASX is available in both 2WD and 4WD trims. Mitsubishi has given only a single engine option in the ASX for the Malaysian market.

It is quite surprising that Mitsubishi went ahead with the CVT unit for the ASX and not provide a manual even as an option. CVTs tend to be sluggish and deteriorate the overall performance of a capable engine. The ASX, too, feels a bit slow in shifting gears but somehow pulls it off. It won’t be an issue unless you really want to get going from the stop.

Braking & Safety

The front wheels of the ASX are armed with ventilated disc brakes whereas the rear ones get solid discs. The stopping power is further enhanced by 215 section tires that provide that much more grip. Also, the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) come in handy as well. The other safety features that you’ll find in the Mitsubishi ASX include airbags, Active Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill-Start Assist (HSA), Brake Assist (BA), Pretensioner & Force Limiter Seatbelts, Parking Sensors, and a Reverse Camera.

Verdict

Today when most of the car manufacturers are opting for very dynamic and futuristic design for their cars, Mitsubishi is still holding on tight to its conventional design language that can be seen in the ASX. It isn’t as exciting as some of its today’s rivals, but it certainly isn’t something you would decline is yours. It is a simple yet elegant-looking car, and that’s its charm.

Also, the fact that the ASX is available in both 2WD and 4WD, is a USP for the vehicle and for you as you can opt for the one you prefer. The price of the 2WD trim is RM 112,400 and you would need to have RM 126,739 to own the 4WD variant. As far as the color options go, you can pick - Solid White, Cool Silver, Sporty Blue, and Titanium Gray.

    The simple one

    I have been driving the Mitsubishi ASX for quite some time now, and during all these years it has not given me any major problems whatsoever. It is a simple car with just enough features to keep things going. It does not look that attractive considering the fact that there are other cars in this price range and segment. But Read More

    A small and stylish SUV

    I spent months trying to decide which SUV to buy which was a difficult process keeping in mind that I did not have a very lavish budget. After months of consulting and researching, I brought home the Mitsubishi ASX and it has been a pleasant 3 years riding it around. While most small SUVs aim for a stylish and compact Read More
