Recent Updates of Mitsubishi ASX

I spent months trying to decide which SUV to buy, it was a difficult process keeping in mind that I didn't 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 experience riding it around. While most small SUVs aim for a stylish and compact exterior, the ASX has taken a different route and it looks big, bulky - like an old-school SUV.

My wife and I both loved how the interiors look and feel owing to a simple and clean layout where the touchscreen stands out in the centre. There are splashes of silver and glossy black that make the car stand out and lend a luxurious appeal to the Mitsubishi ASX. The only problem in the interiors that I noticed was that some of the materials used felt old-fashioned, especially the rippled rubber-plastic lining the dash. Also, the switchgear in the cabin looks very old-school as well. On a good note, the cabin is very roomy with 2 cup holders separating the front seats.

Overview

The Mitsubishi ASX is a compact SUV that was first launched in 2010. Since then Mitsubishi has started assembling it in the country. This brought the price down and made it a value proposition. There is a new for 2018 model on sale in many markets, but the one here is still unchanged from its last facelift. As such it has an uphill task in front of it when it comes to fighting against the new crop of compact SUVs and crossovers. While it might be getting too long in the tooth that does not mean that it is not a competent car anymore. Currently, there are two variants on sale in the country, based on whether it’s a 4WD or 2WD. So, how well does it live up to its initial promise of value today? Let’s find out.

Interior & Features

That slightly longer wheelbase we talked about? It does not translate into that much space in the interior. It’s like a large hatchback from the inside. The seating in the back is also rather compact in all areas. Despite this, there are some good points to discuss. The driver seat gives a high riding position that gives a good look outside. There is decent cargo space too at 442L. There are leather seats along with interior materials that have a nice feel to them. Like all Mitsus, this too has a driver-centric dashboard layout. The instrument display is a twin pod layout housing a digital display in the middle. The steering is wrapped in leather and is adjustable for tilt as well as being telescopic. It also comes with controls for audio. Infotainment is handled by a 6.1” touchscreen display that controls a 2 DIN unit and is also equipped with navigation and Bluetooth. It looks well integrated with the overall dashboard and performs well. It’s not the best or the most intuitive system in the world but it’s there. Automatic climate control comes as standard on either model. The 4WD version gets a few select options that are not standard on the 2WD. These include large Magnesium paddle shifts, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, push-button start and cruise control.          

Exterior

The first impression would be that it’s not very big. And at 4295 (L) X 1770 (W) X 1615 (H) mm it really isn’t. Its 2670 mm wheelbase, however, seems generous. 195 mm of ground clearance also speaks well of its practicality and SUV creds. The 4WD comes with 17” wheels with 215/ 60 R17 tires. The 2WD comes with 16” wheels and 215/65 R16 tires. The 5-spoke alloys on both look pretty good. The styling has gotten old now and the new ASX with its Xpander like styling looks much better. Still, the front is characteristically Mitsubishi, in an extruded Evo sort of way. The front grille has a chrome surround on the 4WD but the body color surround actually looks better. There are LED DRLs on the bumper intakes next to the fog lights. The side profile is equally restrained with subdued bumpers. The rear has a spoiler and a shark fin antenna on top. The 4WD variant gets a muffler cutter for the single silencer poking from the bumper. There are only two colors on offer – Titanium Grey and Solar White. Despite being old, it is still a handsome car and manages to look contemporary.  

Engine & Fuel Consumption

There is just the one engine option. It’s a 2.0-litre 16 valve inline 4 with MIVEmulti-point point fuel injection. It produces a peak power output of 150 PS at 6000 rpm and 197 Nm of torque at 4200 rpm. The transmission uses Mitsubishi’s INVECS-III CVT with 6-step Sports Mode. The ASX is capable of hitting 190 kmph and delivering mileage figures of 13.5 kmpl. This same engine can be also found in the Lancer GT. The engine has good refinement levels too and does feel too intrusive in the cabin. The CVT means that this SUV is not the quickest to get to speed. Power comes in a surge and dabs of the right foot generate more noise than speed. Driving this needs a progressive effort and some patience. Steering gives good feel and is very responsive. The ride is comfortable too.

Braking & Safety

Safety levels are pretty great too. The 4WD gets airbags for driver & front passenger, side, and curtain and driver's knee. The 2WD version misses out on side and curtain airbags. ABS with EBD and brake assist are standard on both. There are 2 parking sensors in the front and 4 in the rear along with a reverse camera. The 4WD version gets extra help with active stability control, traction control and hill start assist. You may say that the handling characteristics, however, do not really warrant them. This SUV is not for taking on mountains but to carry children to and from school. But features like the traction control and the stability control are still important.

Verdict

The 2WD ASX can be bought for RM 112399 and the 4WD version can be bought for RM 126739. The RM 14340 difference for the 4WD is totally worth it though. And we’re not talking about the lockable 4WD function but all the other luxuries and safety equipment that the SUV comes with. It also looks a tad bit better than the 2WD with its bigger wheels and chrome lipped grille. The view from the inside is also much better thanks to the panoramic sun roof. That being said, even the 2WD version is very well equipped. It does deliver pretty well as a value proposition.
But to be honest, the problem here is not in choosing between the two ASX variants. The dilemma arises from the fact that the Mitsubishi is deeply in need of an update. Since its launch the market has changed by heaps. The crossover segment is more crowded than ever. Going for something as old as the ASX then, takes some very good reasoning. What are your thoughts? Is the ASX appealing enough for you?
