Mitsubishi presented the latest generation of its crossover ASX, which will be sold in the remaining European markets where the brand is present.
If the car looks familiar, it’s because this is a Renault Captur with a Mitsubishi loop. Even the wheels are the same as on the French car.
Of course, Renault’s range of engines has been completely taken over, starting with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that develops 90 hp.
Next is the 1.3 which is now available with two power levels and features 12-volt mild-hybrid technology. The first version has 140 hp and a six-speed manual transmission, while the more powerful 158 hp has a seven-speed automatic transmission with two blades.
Unfortunately, the ASX is also the first hybrid of the Mitsubishi brand to be sold in Europe. It is powered by a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine and two electric motors with a total system power of 143 hp.
The plug-in hybrid version has the same combination but with a 10.5 kWh battery, which allows the ASX to travel up to 49 km on electricity alone. Its power is slightly higher, delivering 159 hp.
As for the interior, buyers can opt for a fancy 10.25 digital display for the driver that has 3D navigation. A seven-inch screen is also available, if you want to save a little.
And if you’re completely focused on budget, the screen can be reduced to just 4.2 inches, nestled between the analog instruments.
Similarly, multimedia is also variable. You can choose a 7-inch screen in horizontal format or a 9.3-inch screen with vertical orientation.
They can be wirelessly connected to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Although the ASX retains its compact proportions (4,228 mm long, 1,797 mm wide, 1,573 mm high), it has a sliding rear seat that provides more legroom or more space in the boot.
The volume of the cargo space can increase from 332 liters to 401 liters thanks to this function.
The Mitsubishi ASX has a standard collision warning system with emergency braking assistance and pedestrian and cyclist detection, in addition to active lane keeping and traffic sign recognition.
Also available are blind spot assist, active lane monitoring, speed warning, adaptive cruise control and high beam assist.
Sales of the new Mitsubishi ASX will begin in March 2023 in Germany and other European markets where the brand is still active.
