Mitsubishi has given its ASX small crossover a facelift, centring on styling and equipment changes.

On sale from 1st November at prices starting from £15,999, the 2017 model-year ASX will be available with one petrol or two diesel engine options, front or all-wheel-drive. The engines remain as previously, a 1.6-litre 117hp petrol unit offered in front-wheel-drive five-speed manual form only, the 1.6-litre 114hp diesel with a six-speed manual gearbox and FWD or 4WD, and the 2.2-litre diesel of 150hp which is supplied as standard in 4WD form with a six-speed auto transmission.

The main styling changes see the car adopt Mitsubishi’s latest ‘Dynamic Shield’ visual identity, already seen on its larger Outlander sister. Its major element consists of bold chrome lines running either side of the grille.

Other changes include the addition of a shark-fin antenna on the roof, new seat upholstery and cushions and a new colour choice dubbed Lightning Blue.

   

The model also reverts to a simple ASX 2 to 5 trim designation with changes in specification at each level. Standard equipment on entry-level ASX 2 models includes 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, air conditioning, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a USB port with iPhone compatibility, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, multifunction colour instrument display, electric windows, rear privacy glass and arm rests for front and rear occupants.

ASX 2 models also include a safety package with the Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC), Hill Start Assist and seven airbags as standard. Models range up to the ASX 5, highlights of its specification including Nappa leather seats in a choice of three colours, heated rear seats and a power driver’s seat.
