Bold facelift for Mitsubishi's ASX compact SUV

Bold facelift for Mitsubishi's ASX compact SUV

Mitsubishi has unveiled its new ASX crossover ahead of its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March. And yes, despite the fact the Outlander Sport hasn't been completely redesigned since its introduction in the 2011 model year, Mitsubishi is only giving it a mild update.

The exterior design has undergone a major overhaul under a design philosophy of "robust & ingenious", which serves as an expression of the MMC's global tagline "Drive your Ambition".

The old 2.2-litre diesel unit has been dropped, and for European markets the sole engine choice is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder non-turbo petrol engine. Two- and four-wheel drive versions will be available.

The ASX also delivers reassurance and safety, with features including the RISE impact safety body and a Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) braking system. The SUV also gets the Dynamic shield front design concept with a bumper created to express strength and toughness.
