In an attempt to keep it fresh through the years, the ASX has received numerous facelifts and now the local importer is making it more affordable by introducing a new ES entry level specification level.
The LS comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, fabric seats, manual air conditioning, three airbags, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel, electric windows, auto headlights and wipers as well as a conventional FM radio with CD player and Bluetooth connectivity. Customers can however opt for a touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
As with all Mitsubishi ASX models, the front wheels are powered by a 2.0-litre MIVEC normally aspirated engine that produces 110kW and 197Nm. Mitsubishi claims a braked towing capacity of 1260kg for the manual and 750kg for the CVT. All ASX models come with a three-year/100 000km warranty and three-year/60 000km service plan, with intervals set at 15 000km.
