Japanese crossover benefits from new face and improved infotainment system, while also dropping diesel engine

Mitsubishi is breathing a new lease of life into its ASX crossover, bringing a visual overhaul and an upgraded infotainment system.

It takes on the latest Mitsubishi corporate design, resulting in the introduction of thin LED headlights and a prominent silver grille up front with c-shaped side trimmings, while the rear has been treated to new LED taillights and a skid plate.


There are also three colours available for the ASX — namely Red Diamond, Sunshine Orange and Oak Brown.

Inside the car, the size of the touchscreen infotainment system has been increased from seven to eight inches, and now also boasts the ability to play videos stored on a USB stick while the car is stopped. High-spec models also feature Tom Tom satellite navigation.

A smartphone app will also be made available following the new crossover’s launch that will allow owners to monitor vehicle information when away from the car, including its fuel level and service intervals.


The big news on engines for the new ASX is the removal of the 2.2-litre diesel option from the line-up. European markets will get a sole 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, available with either a CVT or five-speed manual gearbox.

Expect to hear pricing and information on the new Mitsubishi ASX following its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show, taking place from March 5 to 17.
