Car reviews - Mitsubishi - ASX - XLS petrol 2WD
Not ageing gracefully, Mitsubishi’s ASX is best in base spec and heavily discounted
14 Aug 2017
ALMOST eight years after its Australian launch, the Mitsubishi ASX still punches above its weight in the sales charts, playing a close second fiddle to the long-term small SUV segment leader that is the Mazda CX-3 and comfortably outsells well-regarded models such as Nissan’s Qashqai and the Honda HR-V.
Compared with its younger rivals, the ASX is a pretty unsophisticated thing but nothing can really touch it in terms of sheer practicality from such a small footprint on the road. A five-year warranty helps, as do Mitsubishi’s revolving driveaway deals.
And if you have rented a car at the airport recently, you probably noticed the sea of Titanium Grey ASX base variants in the vehicle pick-up compound.
Yes you can buy better, but the ASX remains a cheap, honest and practical small SUV.
