The Mitsubishi ASX is an ideal choice for motorists that desire the best of hatchback practicality and SUV capability. This affordable crossover is cost-effective to run, possesses a roomy interior and comes well equipped as standard.
A rising window line, a discreetly tapering roofline, a raised ride height and a subtly descending bonnet help provide the ASX with its determined-looking stance. The vehicle features a five-door body too, which ensures that passengers, young and old, have easy access to the rear compartment. Despite its relatively compact dimensions, the car features a surprisingly spacious cabin. There’s certainly plenty of room to accommodate four full-size adults, or a young family of five. There’s space, also, for cup-holders, full-size door bins and stowage cubbies. A 442-litre boot space features which, tith 60/40 split-folding rear seats reclined, expands to 1,193 litres. There’s even a hidden under-floor compartment – the perfect place to temporarily keep valuables from prying eyes.
Entry-level Juro grades feature a 1.6-litre 117bhp petrol engine that manages up to 41.5mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 155g/km. The greenest option available for the ASX is a 1.6-litre 112bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 61.4mpg and produces emissions as low as 119g/km. For maximum off-road efficiency, choose a model that is powered by a 2.2-litre 147bhp diesel engine, which puts out a peak torque of 360Nm.
This family-friendly SUV boasts a maximum five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. The vehicle is replete with safety technology, including seven airbags and ISOFIX child-seat mounts that help keep passengers of all ages safe and secure. Driver aids include Tyre Pressure Monitoring, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist and Emergency Stop Signal System (ESS). Whenever maximum braking pressure is applied, ESS will automatically flash the car’s brake lights to provide an instant warning to motorists following behind.
Audio entertainment is provided by a standard-issue six-speaker sound system, which you can operate while keeping your eyes on the road, thanks to the presence of steering wheel-mounted controls. DAB digital radio and AUX and USB inputs feature too, as does Bluetooth, which enables music streaming.
