New Mitsubishi ASX goes on sale in the UK

The all-new Mitsubishi ASX is now on sale in the UK, priced from £15,999.

The new ASX is the latest car to use Mitsubishi’s “Dynamic shield” design language, which gives the exterior of the vehicle a look more in keeping with other models in the Japanese firm’s range, such as the Outlander and Outlander PHEV.

The new design brings with it features such as chrome streaks on either side of the car’s front grille, as well as a shark-fin antenna and a new ‘Lightning Blue’ body colour.

The ASX’s trim levels have also been revised, with the various specifications given new names: ASX 2, ASX 3, ASX 4 and ASX 5.

There are also three engines to choose from, starting with a petrol unit producing 115bhp, rising to a 148bhp diesel. There’s also a middle of the range diesel, which puts out 112bhp.

The 1.6-litre unit’s power is sent through a five-speed manual transmission to the front wheels, and is able to return a claimed combined economy figure of 48.7mpg. CO2 emissions sit at a respectable 135g/km.

The 1.6-litre diesel comes with a six-speed manual gearbox. On ASX 3 model cars, front-wheel-drive comes as standard, while ASX 4 cars have on-demand four-wheel-drive.

The top-spec 2.2-litre turbodiesel is available on either the ASX 4 or ASX 5, and can achieve an economy figure of 48.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 152g/km.

All models in the range are well equipped, with even base-spec ASX 2 cars coming with 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity and air conditioning.
