The Mitsubishi ASX is another small SUV tipped to make a big impact this year. Smaller SUVs are expected to become more popular due to the fact they are cheaper and more efficient than their full sized alternatives, yet still as practical. The Mitsubishi ASX and other small SUVs have influenced buyers to go for an SUV instead of a traditional people carrier for their next family car. The ASX will come with a choice of two engines including the new 1.8 litre turbo diesel with stop-start and a 1.6 litre petrol, both have been promised to have low running costs with good fuel economy. The Mitsubishi ASX will come with a six-speed manual gearbox with a choice of 2WD or 4WD, you also get the option to upgrade to the CVT auto gearbox. Mitsubishi have improved things on the inside with the instruments and controls compared to the cost-cutting ways of the Lancer. The ASX offers plenty of space in both the front and back, lift the tailgate and theres a decent-sized load bay too. On the road the car feels good to drive and the ride is impressively controlled, thanks to a crisp, well balanced chassis and responsive steering. Around town, the Mitsubishi ASX makes light work of any tight situations as it offers a surprisingly tight turning circle, while good visibility makes parking in town a doddle. Mitsubishi are well on the way to redefining the family car class, the ASX is a well rounded neat and nimble new compact crossover thatll be landing in the UK this summer. The Mitsubishi ASX will be available on lease and contract hire.
