The Mitsubishi ASX is an appealing buy, thanks to its compact dimensions, spacious cabin and efficient engines

Styling

With an aggressive grille and lights, the Mitsubishi ASX shares the same front end as its performance sibling, the Evo X. Despite the visual interest up-front, the rest of the ASX isn’t as exciting. It is neatly designed and well-proportioned, but it doesn’t really stand out from the crowd. The interior follows the same approach, and although quality is improved over previous cars from the Japanese firm, the cabin is dull to look at and much of it feels cheap to the touch – especially the dated switchgear.

Driving and Performance

Compact dimensions mean the Mitsubishi ASX is far easier to manoeuvre than its larger siblings, but a degree of body roll shows it’s not as fun to drive as the Skoda Yeti or Nissan Qashqai. Still, the 1.8-litre diesel is the world’s first to use variable valve timing. And when you come to a stop, the engine’s idle speed drops to 600rpm, helping to boost fuel economy. Performance of both the petrol and diesel would be considered adequate, although the six-speed manual gearbox is notchy. As the first Mitsubishi to offer reach and rake adjustment for the steering wheel, it’s also easy to get comfortable behind the wheel.

MPG and running costs

Both the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.8-litre diesel engines are quite efficient. The former can return 47.0mpg and the latter 51.0mpg, with CO2 ratings ranging from 135g/km to 145g/km. This makes it cleaner than both the Skoda Yeti and Nissan Qashqai, thanks to the car’s stop-start system. And unlike its rivals, buyers can choose from two service plans – the petrol being covered for three years and 37,000 miles at a cost of £450 while the diesel, which needs more maintenance, is £650 over the same period but with a reduced mileage limit of 27,000 miles. All models are well equipped, and even the mid-range ASX 3 comes with cruise control, Bluetooth and climate control, though sat-nav is a dealer fit option only.

Practicality

With a 442-litre boot the Mitsubishi ASX is one of the most practical models in the class, although it fails to match the Skoda Yeti when the rear seats are folded, since the Czech car can have them removed completely. The rear bench can be split and also incorporates a ski hatch, but there are no straps or netting to secure smaller items. Still, there’s plenty of room for occupants, and thanks to the raised ride-height the Mitsubishi ASX can still tackle rough tracks with ease. Four-wheel drive is only available with the 1.8 diesel.

Safety and reliability

The Mitsubishi ASX is loaded with safety kit, including stability control, traction control, Isofix child seat mounting points, brake assist, a passenger airbag deactivation switch and a complement of seven airbags, including one for the driver’s knees. It fared well in Euro NCAP tests as well, and emerged with five stars – scoring the maximum for the side barrier impact test. Traditionally the Mitsubishi brand has always done well in the annual Driver Power survey.
