Mitsubishi ASX Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior, Specs & News

The 2010 ASX wasn't Mitsubishi's first foray into the small, city-based SUV sphere – that honour went to the chunky little go-anywhere Pajero iO offered from the late '90s to the mid-2000s.

Based on the CJ Lancer small-car platform, the ASX was a slow burner initially, but keen pricing, competitive equipment levels, good looks and lots of interior space for a small SUV helped it garner a strong following right into the 2020s.

At first turbo-diesel as well as all-wheel drive versions were available, but after a series of small facelifts, the range settled down to the mainstay 2.0-litre petrol or – from the late-2019 makeover – a gutsier 2.4-litre petrol option. Both drive the front wheels only.

Current prices range from $23,990 for the ASX GS (2WD) to $35,240 for the ASX Exceed (2WD).

This vehicle is also known as Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Mitsubishi ASX Interior

The Mitsubishi ASX interior is not one to thrill but it gets the job done with minimal fuss and fanfare. The dashboard is uncluttered with three dials to operate your climate and an 8.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system.

There’s something charming about how pared back it is that you don’t immediately feel taken aback by the traditional gear shifter, handbrake and turn-key operation.

On higher grades you will enjoy a push-button start and keyless entry. A panoramic sunroof is available on the top model.

Mitsubishi ASX Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi ASX here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • How do I turn the service reminder off in my 2016 Mitsubishi ASX?

    This is a pretty common type of question these days. Once cars are out of warranty (and often before that time) many owners elect to use an independent workshop for their servicing rather than a dealership. But some non-dealership workshops don’t always know the little tips and tricks including how to switch off the service reminder after the scheduled service has been performed.

    But here’s something you can try at home which should cancel the service light on your ASX. Turn the car’s ignition off. Now press the info button (down low on the dashboard near the steering column) until you see a small spanner icon appear in the info panel on the dashboard. Now hold down the info button until the little spanner symbol starts flashing. Once it’s flashing, release the info button again and the word `clear’ should pop up next to the spanner icon. With `clear’ displayed, press the info button one more time and you should be done. Now start the engine to make sure the service reminder light has gone out. If none of that works, a Mitsubishi dealership should be able to switch off the light for you.

  • Does the Mitsubishi ASX 2018 have a timing belt or chain?

    Both the petrol and diesel versions of the 2018 ASX used a timing chain rather than a toother rubber timing belt. That means both engines’ timing chains should be good for the life of the engine, although in practice that hasn’t always been the case and some engines do, in fact, need new timing chains if wear develops in the chain or its tensioners. Neither Mitsubishi engine has thus far demonstrated that trait, however, and it’s far less common if the engine has been serviced correctly.

    The task of the timing chain or timing belt is exactly the same: They take drive from the engine’s crankshaft to the camshaft and, in the process, keep all the moving parts in harmony. Many car makers moved away from a timing chain to the rubber, toothed drive belt as a way of simplifying engine design and driving down the cost of each engine. The rubber timing belt is also quieter in its operation and is also less prone to stretching (as a timing chain can) so the camshaft stays in perfect synch with the rest of the engine’s rotating parts. It’s a simpler design because it doesn’t need to be tensioned via oil pressure from the engine as many timing chain systems are.

    The timing chain, meanwhile, is preferred by some manufacturers because it should last the lifetime of the engine and never need replacement. This isn’t always the case, however, and some engine designs from a variety of manufacturers suffer problems in this regard. But, in a properly maintained engine of sound design, the timing chain should never need attention, while the rubber timing belt generally requires periodic replacement, typically between 60,000 and 120,000km depending on the manufacturer.

  • Why are there changes to the build of the 2021 Mitsubishi ASX LS?

    For the record, there really is a global shortage of semi-conductors; a shortage that has already seen some big car-makers trim production and even close some plants. As the electric car phenomenon grows, and the average conventional car has anything up to 100 micro-processors, the shortage will only become more critical, so the next few months will be very interesting.

    However, I spoke to Mitsubishi Australia about this and it seems your dealer might not be telling you everything. For a start, to even offer you an ASX LS without the safety gear it comes standard with is, according to head office, an impossibility. Why? Because Mitsubishi claims it has never built such a car. The spokesperson I talked to said that, had the correct semi-conductor (or any other part) not been available for that car in that specification, the car would not have been built. Simple as that. I’m not sure what Mitsubishi dealers are saying, but that’s head office’s view.

    Which brings us to the question of your contract. Put simply, if the vehicle you’re being offered does not match the vehicle as described in the contract of sale, then you can call the deal off with no ramifications. And since this is major safety gear we’re talking about being AWOL, the car on offer most certainly does not match what you signed up for. So you can stop worrying on that front.

    Then we move on to what the dealer is really trying to sell you. There’s a feeling within Mitsubishi that the dealer probably has stocks of a particular variant of the ASX, but one which doesn’t have the LS model’s standard safety kit. And that’s what they’re trying to unload on to you. So don’t have it.

    If you go through with the deal, you’ll inevitably be buying a car that doesn’t live up to the safety levels you wanted when you originally ordered the LS model. It will be worth less as a trade-in in a few years, too, as used-car buyers (like everybody else) are increasingly interested in safety. As it stands, being offered a $300 discount on a car that doesn’t exist smells very odd to me. I’d be talking to Mitsubishi Australia’s customer service department and explaining your case. Sometimes you need to go to a higher court than the dealership itself.
