MITSUBISHI’S stunning ASX crossover has had improvements made across the range and it’s available now from ourselves.
Available with a choice of powerful, yet efficient, petrol and diesel engines, the ASX offers impressive fuel economy but still packs plenty of pulling power. It also boasts a five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating and is available as a four-wheel drive.
A new naming structure has been brought in for the ASX, with the ASX 2 now called the ASX ZC, the ASX 3 becoming the ASX ZC-M, and the ASX 4 now the ASX ZC-H.
Among the many new or changed specifications from the current ASX 2, the ASX ZC now has steering wheel audio controls, privacy glass and a premium front centre arm rest/console box. The ASX ZC-M gains a number of key specification items to create a fresh new look and feel, including new 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels plus DAB, while the range-topping ASX ZC-H sees the Kenwood unit replaced with a factory-fitted Mitsubishi Multi-Communication System, boasting a seven-inch high-definition touchscreen display, sat nav, reversing camera, DAB plus FM/AM/LW radio, CD players and SD card compatibility.
All engines in the new range meet the latest Euro 6 emission regulations, with a new 1.6 diesel engine replacing the 1.8 Mitsubishi diesel unit in the ZC-M and ZC-H manual models. The ASX ZC-M emits just 119g/km of CO2, meaning no vehicle tax is payable for the first year.
Sean Pattinson, Dealer Principal here at Grenson’s said: ‘ASX stands for Active Sports X-over, which gives an excellent indication of just how much fun the vehicle is to live with and to drive. It delivers fantastic economy and emissions, versatility, as well as comprehensive standard equipment, not to mention reassuring safety features.
‘The ASX really does have everything the crossover buyer is after, and we’re sure the improvements that have been made will enhance its appeal still further.’
