At the heart of the Mitsubishi ASX's appeal is its versatility. As a crossover model, it takes on a variety of driving challenges with enthusiasm. You can choose the ASX as a new car on the Motability Scheme, and it comes with a range of features that benefit disabled road users.
The sturdy look of the 4x4 shows you from the outset that this vehicle is always attractively capable. Chrome trims draw your eye across the body, and black accents add to the purposeful atmosphere. The door handles, mirror caps and roof spoiler will be finished in your choice of body colour.
Automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers come with the top-end trim levels, just the beginning of the high functionality across the ASX. Standard equipment encompasses heated door mirrors, front fog lights and 'follow me home' lighting. The rear and side windows are fitted with privacy glass to help your passengers feel more comfortable.
The convenience is clear from the moment you enter the cabin, with storage compartments and ample space around each seat. One-touch full electric windows include an anti-trapping mechanism, and the ASX will also warn you if you park up and accidentally leave the lights on.
The front seats slide and recline, as does the armrest in between. It is also simple to fold the rear bench down to make more luggage space. Create up to 1,193 litres of room for shopping, luggage, a wheelchair and anything else you may need on your journeys.
ZC, ZC-M and ZC-H are the trim levels offered for the model. In every case, a multi-information colour LCD display sits with the main instruments and shows you drive data on the journey. All except the entry level give you access to in-car music streaming via Bluetooth® and a six-speaker audio system. The Bluetooth® connection can additionally be used to make hands-free phone calls.
Feel reassured by the vehicle's capabilities and the five-star safety rating it has been awarded by Euro NCAP. The technologies fitted to protect you include Mitsubishi's Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body system and Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC).
You can choose the crossover with a diesel or petrol engine, in two-wheel or four-wheel drive, and with a manual or automatic transmission. Options depend on the specification level you select. This flexibility makes it even easier to drive. An engine start/stop button ensures you can get on the move with a single press.
Maximum power from the strongest engine reaches 147bhp and 360Nm of torque. Carrying and towing feel simpler with the ASX, as it can pull up to 750kg of braked weight. This impressive toughness causes no detriment to the crossover's overall efficiency, as you can expect as much as 61.4mpg combined from the diesel engines.
