  • The Mitsubishi ASX represents pretty good value for money in the burgeoning small SUV segment. Priced from $24, (plus on-road costs) for.

    The update Mitsubishi ASX improves in many ways.

    The Mitsubishi ASX has more space inside than most small SUVs and drives nicely. This review covers cars on sale prior to the MY18 facelift of September

    The petrol engine, which is more popular, feels lethargic initially but builds pace enthusiastically once the car gets moving. Mitsubishi's ASX has been around in its current generation since Special edition Isuzu D-Max Fury is all fired up. For sales, we'll have to wait and see how the market responds.

    The value equation is clear: The front-drive ASX has a 2. The manual uses a claimed 7. During our time in the manual version we saw an indicated 9. The engine lacks much punch at low revs, with peak torque achieved at rpm and peak power at rpm.

    Under hard acceleration it can be noisy — particularly above rpm, and it needs to spend quite a bit of time up high in the rev range. Indeed, at highway speeds it could do with an extra gear, sitting at more than rpm. The ASX measures 4. However, the ASX has a lengthy 2. Mitsubishi says it has performed some fixes on the suspension to make it more stable, and it is clear the alterations have been beneficial. That, combined with the stabilising nature of the long-ish wheelbase, result in a relatively composed ride that is well suited to city commuters.

    The suspension irons out big bumps nicely, and while it can be a little wobbly over continuous surface jitters, its composure is better than it has ever been. Even through a quicker section of corners the ASX LS 2WD showed its improvement — there is still noticeable body-roll, but the cornering grip has clearly been enhanced by the fitment of those new inch alloys which are clad in Dunlop SP Sport rubber.

    The steering is better suited to commuting than tackling demanding mountain passes, in that it is light and predictable enough for easy parking manoeuvres. We did notice some kick-back over rough surfaces, though.

    That said, the recent update included some revisions to the trims and fabrics, and the cloth in the LS base model was of a nice quality. The base model also gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear-shifter, and its 6. However, the screen can be difficult to see in certain light. Seat comfort is good up front, while in the back there is a flat, broad bench that sits low and makes for a reasonably spacious area for broader-shouldered passengers to sit.

    Storage for the ASX is where it falls short of newer rivals. Although there is decent small item stowage by means of central cupholders, the slim door pockets and small bottle caddies up front will mean hoarders will need to clean out more often. In the back there are no door stowage slots but there is a single, lined map pocket and a flip-down central armrest with cupholders.

    However, the boot of the ASX is where it has an advantage over some of those competitors that better it for in-cabin storage, with litres of space with the seats up and a claimed L with the It has a broad opening which means loading large or awkward items is easy, and there are recessed loose item bins in the boot for odds and ends.

    The changes to the ASX range are welcome, but there's no disguising some of the shortfalls of this SUV against its newer rivals. That said, bargains can be had in Mitsubishi dealerships, so if a practical and comfortable small SUV with a low starting price is what you're in the market for, it could be worth a look.
