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.

Recent Updates of ASX

2020 Mitsubishi ASX was revealed at the Geneva Auto Show 2019, and we here in Malaysia still have the previous-gen model to ourselves. Locally, the crossover competes against the likes of Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson. It is built on the same platform that supports the Outlander and Eclipse Cross. Both the 2WD and 4WD variants are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated 4-cyl engine that produces 148 hp and 197 Nm. The 1.4-tonne car is quick too, in a sense, as it touches the 100 kmph mark in 11 seconds. The 2WD and 4WD variants are priced at RM 118,866 and RM 133,336, respectively.

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.

    Kavithran Jan 11, 2020 for Mitsubishi ASX

    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

    Alvin Sep 09, 2019 for Mitsubishi ASX

    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

    I was in search of a CVT car with a simple design and paddle shifters. My friend suggested me to take a test ride of the Mitsubishi ASX.

    I have had the Mitsubishi ASX for close to a year now and the car has always been reliable and dependant. It may not be the best looking car out there but it certainly has its own charm.

    To me SUV car drive in an urban city like Malaysia is such a relief. Not only have I loved the looks of SUV s, what I prefer more about this car is its raised driving seat. That enables you to get a better drive each time. So when I decided to purchase a SUV for myself I thought to Read More

    Going for the Mitsubishi ASX was a tough choice to make, considering how well and stiff the current competition is there in the compact crossover segment in recent times. However, while some do believe that the Mitsubishi ASX is a bit soft and dated in comparison to other crossovers in its space, I do feel that this very simplicity of Read More
