Mitsubishi has overhauled its venerable ASX crossover with a new look, a new engine and an upgraded infotainment system.
The updated ASX takes on Mitsubishi’s latest corporate design elements, 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.
Three new colours have also been added to the ASX palette — 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 TomTom 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 both the 2.2-litre diesel and the 1.6-litre petrol from the line-up. European markets will now be offered a 2.0-litre petrol engine, available with either a CVT automatic 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, which kicks off in the first week of March.
