Mitsubishi ASX 2018 review
Mitsubishi's smallest SUV is getting on for eight years old, with only a handful of updates and style tweaks to keep it fresh along the way. A fact that appears to be hurting sales exactly not at all.

The range-topping Akari feels noticeably more plush and premium inside, and you'll pay for that, with the entry price rising to $33,990 for this spec and topping out at $37,290 for the AWD LE, which is a lot of money for this little car.
Engine wise, you get the option of either FWD or i-Activ AWD, which almost no one will take up, realistically. You also have the choice of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine making 110kW/195Nm and producing fuel economy of 6.3 litres per 100km (or 6.6L/100km for the manual) or the 1.8-litre diesel (which again, almost no one will choose), which only comes with FWD and an automatic transmission, and delivers impressive fuel economy of 4.7L/100km, plus 85kW/270Nm.
On top of all the above kit, the Akari adds a power sliding and tilt sunroof, front seats with 10-way power adjustment and two memory settings, which are trimmed in either black or 'Pure White' leather, and heated, plus 'Mazda Radar Cruise Control' with start-stop function, which Mazda says is unique to its brand at this level, a 360-degree view monitor, adaptive LED headlights and lane-departure warning.
