ASX Pros & Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

ASX Overview

Mitsubishi is an already established brand in the Malaysian market, but the automaker does not offer a whole lineage of its products for Malaysians. Out of the few models which are available, Mitsubishi AS, a compact SUV has earned wide acclamation over the past few years. The Mitsubishi ASX has a size that is perfect for a midsize SUV. 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. It comes in both 2WD and 4WD variants, both of them features Mitsubishi’s 2.0L MIVEC engine. The ASX may not be the best model around in this segment, but it surely does bring a good value for your money.

Mitsubishi ASX Interior & Features

The interiors of Mitsubishi ASX have been designed to keep the overall design simple and subtle, yet very impactful. As you get inside the car, the first thing that catches your attention the premium quality dashboard design. Also, the driver’s seat is slightly elevated to give a commanding position and nice view to the driver. The switchgear and buttons are also thoughtfully placed according to the driver’s reach. The seats are wrapped in premium quality leather upholstery, which offers a soft and comfortable feel to the occupants. The steering wheel is also wrapped in leather, offering a complete grip to the driver. For the driver’s convenience, the steering wheel is also equipped with all audio, Bluetooth, and cruise control. Right behind the wheel lies a wide information cluster with speedometer and other useful information.

Coming to the center instrument cluster we see a wide MID screen right in the middle, showcasing a variety of information. There is also a touchscreen infotainment system with all ubiquitous features like AUX and USB connectivity.  It also has navigation and features VAPS (Virtual Acoustic Positioning System). Below the touchscreen are the controls for the fully automatic climate control system.

The Mitsubishi ASX, being an entry-level midsize SUV, is equipped with a good amount of comfort and convenience features, which makes the cabin space a premium space to be in. 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 a generous amount of legroom and headroom which makes it comfortable for long drives as well.

 

ASX Exterior

Just as the interior layout of Mitsubishi ASX is impressive, the exterior aesthetics of the car are also subtle and stylish. It is a perfect combination of practicality and functionality, which is why you might be willing to spend your money on ASX, despite it having competitive rivals in the market. 

The front fascia of the car dons a nice pair of headlamps that are halogen bulbs. The wide nose grille at the front bumper gives a sharp appearance to the front profile of the car. The grille is garnished with silver tints to make the front look glossy. Besides that, the fog lamps are surrounded by C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights. 

There are nice curvy lines running all over the body of the car to give it a contoured silhouette. Also dominating the side profile are strong character lines, running from the front door to the rear end, seamlessly merging with the rear tail-light cluster. To give a masculine appeal to the car, the black cladding effect has been given all over the car. The roof-mounted spoiler is also a prominent addition. 

Mitsubishi ASX Ride & Handling

The suspension setup at the front wheels of the Mitsubishi ASX is managed by MacPherson Strut Coil Springs with Stabiliser and Multi-link Coil Springs with Stabiliser at the rear. Together this set-up works well to offer a decent ride quality to the car. Besides offering a comfortable drive in the busy city traffic roads, the ASX also offers pretty good highway driving. But just to keep in mind, ASX is a sub-compact SUV and hence not much should be expected out of it while twisting the car to curves and corners. 

ASX Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the bonnet of the Mitsubishi ASX is a 2.0L MIVEC engine that sparks 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 ASX Braking & Safety

The front wheels of the ASX are equipped with ventilated disc brakes whereas the rear ones get solid discs. The stopping capability 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. Additional safety features include airbags, Active Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill-Start Assist (HSA), Brake Assist (BA), Pretensioner & Force Limiter Seatbelts, Parking Sensors, and a Reverse Camera. Overall, you get a complete package of braking and safety features in the Mitsubishi ASX.

ASX Verdict

If space and comfort both you stress upon while selecting your car, then you will never get disappointed with this selection. The car is amazing in terms of performance. The space inside is more than adequate. The roomy interior denotes long term comfort. This is one of the decent small-sized SUV. 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 colour options go, you can pick - Solid White, Cool Silver, Sporty Blue, and Titanium Gray.

    This one is an average city car to drive. It’s comfortable to an extent, but most of its competitors are better. There were a few niggles and the company had them sorted out. There was a brake caliper problem after the warranty period was over. I found that many others had a similar problem. Other than that it was an Read More

    The Mitsubishi ASX doesn’t look good when compared with the newer compact SUVs that have come up. It has a dated design and Mitsubishi is not bothered to update its looks. But the sporty lines on the body and the dynamic grille lend the car a better appearance. The Mitsubishi ASX is designed for those wanting a car with a Read More

    I would recommend the Mitsubishi ASX to everyone looking to buy a car in the Malaysian market. Built on the likes of the Outlander and Eclipse Cross, the ASX is no less of a performer with a 1998 cc engine that makes 148 hp of power. The crossover is a great economy package and can stand out amongst most of Read More

    To be honest, I was not much attracted towards the Mitsubishi ASX when I saw it for the very first time. I mean, it doesn’t look as premium and stylish for the cost it asks. However, after a comprehensive test drive, the ASX managed to change my mindset. There are a couple of things which are really good about the Read More

    The ASX is a simple machine, and that's good. According to me, the fewer the parts the fewer the chances of something going wrong. Simple it may be, but the ASX is a great car to drive. It will put a smile on your face every time! That to me is more important than any number of features, most of Read More

    The ASX from Mitsubishi certainly feels dated and is due for a refresh. It is still a great choice if you are looking for a compact SUV. You get the latest safety tech like 7 airbags, stability control and traction control. I believe SUVs should be 4WD so got that variant. The ASX has a fully independent suspension system and Read More

    The Mitsubishi ASX, according to me, is simply the best compact SUV currently roaming on the streets of Malaysia. I can give several reasons as to why I think that ASX excels in the market. For starters, it gets a design that makes it stand out from all other compact SUVs in the market. In addition to this, it gets Read More

    Mitsubishi is yet to update the ASX with their new design language and it is starting to feel dated now. This does not mean it is not a great car! The ASX has a solid foundation and is a great all-round car. There are many newer options out there but I doubt they will be as dependable as the ASX. Read More

    When I saw my friend’s new car, Mitsubishi ASX, I could feel that there is a subtle simplicity that is connected to its design and overall looks. While I enquired about its price, I could figure out this is a value for money kind of car. Mostly apt for those who are looking for a car to meet their basic Read More
