In a world dominated by generalist brands such as SUVs, some firms like Mitsubishi are still struggling to compete in sales volume based products that offer something different. This is the case of the Mitsubishi ASX , recently renovated in 2013, and with some unmistakable features intended, so far successfully, imposed a priori best known rivals .
As mentioned, this 2013 Mitsubishi has renewed its ASX keep facing up to the demands of the market. Now, the range ASX 2013 incorporates some improvements . On the one hand, renews the front design that softens some features and introduces a new finer grid . The 2013 model opens new accommodations for the day and fog lamps , while the front bumper is now more slender and streamlined.

Changing the grill is, in my view, as necessary as successful, leaving a much more elegant and refined than the previous result to restyling version.
At the back we find some clean lines , a new LED taillights and flashy chrome exhaust terminals . Exterior improvements are completed with built in folding mirrors, now a continuous type instead of the previous diodes flashing.
The silhouette of the Mitsubishi ASX broadly remains more or less as before , having changed only a few details such as those just listed. I think that is a wise strategy to not make a genuine aesthetic revolution of a model that has worked well so far.

The screen 6.1 “features large icons easy to see size and force us not to neglect the road for long periods of time too .
Very different question is the onboard computer . It is complete and offers information on all the basic elements of our driving, such as odometer, two sets, two measurements of fuel consumption, etc. The problem comes when handle . It is only a button , as happened in the Mitsubishi Outlander [Mitsubishi Outlander View Test] , so that its use is more complex than usual , at least until we get used to it . For example, if we make short presses of the button we will be alternating between the different information you provide before the computer and have listed. If we want to enter the setup menu must do a long press. Once in configuration mode, each “touch” is “down” and each long press would be a “intro”. To exit, the last option in each menu is always “back”.

The rear seats are generous and can comfortably accommodate three adults and a child, leaving more tablets when traveling three adults. In this sense, it shows clearly that the ASX shares a platform with the Peugeot 4008 [View Test Peugeot 4008] and the Citroën C4 Aircross [View Test Citroën C4 Aircross] . The overall look of the interior in the three models is very similar, resulting especially surprising in the case of the two French, as contrasted with the rest of the PSA family.
The trunk cubic 442 liters under normal conditions, can reach up to 1219 liters if the rear seats abatamos as you can see in the photographs. If we need to carry punctually large objects (eg a bicycle), the ASX we can do it without any problem.
Mitsubishi offers the ASX 2013 finishes Challenge , Motion and Kaiteki . Our unit corresponded with the latest equipment, the most comprehensive Mitsubishi few offers.
Since the full Challenge , the Japanese brand offers four electric windows, climate control, rear parking radar, alloy wheels 16 “, sensor lights and rain, central locking with remote, audio opening with CD player, MP3 and USB port, audio controls on the steering wheel, cruise control and trip computer are included, among others, as standard.
In turn, the ASX Motion added panoramic roof with interior lighting LED’s (which I’ll discuss later), roof rack, Bluetooth handsfree, alloy wheels 17 “and rear windows with treatment of privacy, ie slightly tinted.
The Kaiteki addition to the above the Super HID xenon headlights, leather upholstery, heated front seats and electrically adjustable, rear parking system with camera viewing and access and keyless start with boot button. As for the heated seats, I have to say that the button goes a little camouflaged by the seat, so I took note of their existence in some time.
The suspension is too firm and not allow us to go fast either on track, then face a high speed irregularity may adversely affect the passenger compartment and convey a similar feeling when we “swallow” a bump in tourism
The panoramic roof is very pleasant both day and night. By day, the light from entering the passenger compartment makes it more enjoyable driving and stay in the vehicle while at sundown allows us a moment of relaxation and parking to enjoy the splendor of the sky on a clear night. Furthermore, two light LED strips traverse the profile on both sides of the roof , and may adjust its intensity and providing some light to the interior.
