Refreshed Mitsubishi ASX on-sale now from $25,000+ORC
The refreshed Mitsubishi ASX has gone on-sale today priced from $25,000+ORC and available in two variants.
THE BABY SUV of the Mitsubishi line-up has copped a nip and a tuck for the 2017 model year and is on-sale right now from $25,000+ORC. The refreshed ASX adopts Mitsubishi’s corporate Dynamic Shield styling and, said Mitsubishi “boast(s) a number of upgrades to exterior and interior styling and overall functionality”.
In addition to the family grille, the ASX gets a new front bumper with gloss black and chrome finishes. A new shark fin antenna has also been fitted.
Inside, “rear seat comfort is improved with additional seat base bolstering on all models while the LS gain new high-grade fabric seat trim with red stitching. Electric heated seat switches on XLS models are relocated to the instrument panel for greater convenience,” Mitsubishi said.
The Japanese car maker claims it’s tweaked the infotainment unit making it easier to use. We’ll reserve judgement until we’ve tested it ourselves.
Combination style front fog lamps replace the daytime running lamps and the key fob design on LS is new too.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said
“ASX is our number one-selling SUV, and for good reason – it hits all the right markers for small SUV buyers with an abundance of style, features and great packaging.
“The new, Dynamic Shield 2017 ASX will make a bold statement with plenty of youthful appeal and new features to help it remain one of Australia’s most popular small SUVs.”
