Review

Although the ASX is well equipped and has a decent enough infotainment system, there are too many areas in which it is poor for us to recommend it. Despite soft springing, it isn’t particularly comfortable on badly surfaced roads, while the engine's inflexible power delivery makes driving the ASX hard work at times. Factor in relatively tight rear space and poor efficiency, and it becomes clear that it’s a long way off the class best.

Trim: Exceed

Top of the range Exceed adds leather seats with eight-way electric driver’s adjustment, TomTom sat nav, a rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, lane-change assistance and chrome outer door handles. It also adds a panoramic roof, which swallows some head room and makes it a little tight for those over six-foot.

Engine: 2.0

Although 148bhp sounds like plenty, you need to work the ASX’s engine hard to pick up speed quickly. Even then, it’s only as fast as 1.0-litre turbocharged rivals that on paper are less powerful. It’s also rather coarse and emits far more CO2 than rivals.
