2019 Mitsubishi ASX SUV: price, specs and release date

New Mitsubishi ASX on sale in September with new styling and optional four-wheel-drive

Mitsubishi has revealed more details about the new ASX SUV. First revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the next-generation Mitsubishi ASX will go on sale in September. It will be a direct rival in the SUV class against the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Kia Sportage, with this new version getting a new exterior and interior design. Prices are yet to be revealed.

From outside, you'll notice its "Dynamic Shield" family front end design, similar to the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, Outlander and Shogun Sport. It's a makeover completed with a new bumper, grille, bonnet, LED headlights and new off-road-style skid plates front and rear. Both of the available trim levels now come with 18-inch alloy wheels, and two new paint colours.

The latest incarnation of Mitsubishi's Smartphone-link Display Audio system is now larger with an eight-inch screen, with support for TomTom navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, live traffic updates and servicing reminders. It's also possible to view videos stored on a USB memory stick when you're parked up.

Borrowed from the Mitsubishi Outlander, the non-turbo 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 148bhp and can be specced with front or four-wheel drive, along with a five-speed manual or CVT automatic gearbox. The latter will also offer a "six-speed Sports Mode" that can mimic a six-speed gearbox to provide greater performance. The 2.0-litre engine with the manual gearbox gets from 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds (two seconds faster than the old 1.6-litre engine), which increases to 12.2 seconds if you choose the four-wheel-drive variant with an automatic gearbox. Fuel economy figures have yet to be confirmed.

The Mitsubishi ASX is offered in two trim levels from launch, and both are well-equipped. Design spec offers privacy glass, heated front seats, cruise control, auto lights and wipers, keyless start and a rear-view camera, while Dynamic spec adds a panoramic glass roof, leather upholstery, sat nav, the option of four-wheel-drive and additional safety features.

Mitsubishi’s warranty could sway potential customers, as it’s a fairly generous 5-year/62,500-mile warranty.
