Mitsubishi will rationalise its long-serving ASX crossover range into a single trim level for the 2019 model year.
The ASX, which has been around since 2010, will now only be offered as a Juro model, which is a name Mitsubishi often uses for limited-edition models. The two diesel engines have been ditched, leaving the 1.6-litre petrol engine as the only choice.
Four-wheel drive has also gone, with the ASX Juro only available as a front-wheel-drive model.
The Juro is largely based on the old ASX 3 specification and is priced at £19,195. Compared to the ASX 3, the Juro gets faux leather/Alcantara seats, an upgraded seven-inch infotainment touchscreen and LED daytime running lights. However, it loses bi-xenon headlights, meaning you’ll have to make do with halogen lights instead.
Visually, the Juro has been given a new grille and front bumper design, new rear bumper and a revised centre console in the cabin.
Safety equipment remains mostly unchanged from the previous model, with ABS and hill-start assist present as well as seven airbags spread from front to rear. The ASX was crash-tested by Euro NCAP way back in 2011 and given a five-star rating, however this rating expired in January so is no longer valid.
The ASX Juro is priced at £19,195 on-road, although the company is offering a £2,000 deposit contribution if you take out PCP finance.
