New Mitsubishi ASX line-up confirmed

The new Mitsubishi ASX gets an automatic gearbox and more equipment for 2014

Details of the new Mitsubishi ASX range have been revealed, confirming that the 2014 line-up will feature an optional automatic gearbox for the first time since the car was launched in 2010.

The automatic version is available on the top-of-the-range 2.2-litre diesel ASX4 model, and is capable of 48.7mpg. As well as the new automatic gearbox, the Mitsubishi ASX4 gets four-wheel drive and a new panoramic glass roof to give the interior a light, airy feel.

The other two models in the ASX range are the entry-level ASX2 and the mid-range ASX3. Equipment on the ASX2 includes alloy wheels, air-conditioning and keyless entry, plus a Bluetooth hands-free system fitted as standard for the 2014 range. The ASX3 adds parking sensors, an upgraded stereo, heated front seats and a leather steering wheel.

The ASX2 is available with a 115bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, which returns 47.1mpg. ASX3 customers can also choose a six-speed 1.8-litre diesel engine capable of 55.4mpg. The same diesel engine is also available in the range-topping ASX4 model, in addition to the 2.2-litre diesel engine that comes with the automatic gearbox.

Mitsubishi has cut prices across the whole ASX range for 2014, with the entry-level ASX2 now costing £14,999 instead of £16,499, making the ASX considerably cheaper than its popular rival the Nissan Qashqai, which currently starts at £17,595.

The ASX achieved a five-star Euro NCAP crash rating and comes with a number of safety features including anti-lock brakes, traction control, a braking assist system, stability control, hill start assist and up to seven airbags as standard.

The new ASX range is available to test drive in Mitsubishi dealerships now and the car is already on sale in the UK.
