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.

Mazda has thrown the word 'Sport' on the end of its mid-range Maxx variant as well, which surely suggests it's got more gear than the old car.
Stepping up to this level will cost you from $25,490 drive-away, which gives you 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 and 270Nm.
Above and beyond the Neo Sport, the Maxx Sport adds 16-inch alloy wheels, auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a fold down armrest with two cupholders for the rear passengers, leather-wrapped gear shift knob and steering wheel, sunglass storage, climate-control air con, satellite navigation, 'Blind Spot Monitoring' and 'Rear Cross Traffic Alert'.
