Updated Mitsubishi ASX Received a New X Face


Not so long ago, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the official presentation of a new creation of Japanese developers was held – Mitsubishi ASX for 2017 model year (in the Japanese market it is offered under the name RVR, in the USA – Outlander Sport).

I want to note that this novelty is simply perfect in all respects. Of course, the maximum attention should be paid to the exterior of the novelty, from which this review will begin.

The New Face

With a detailed review, you can see a number of elements inherited from previous versions of the car. We will not dwell on them and turn immediately to innovations. In particular, head optics underwent significant modernization. Attention immediately falls on the original narrowed headlights of the new car, which perfectly combined with the smooth body lines, adding models of aggressiveness and dynamism.

The fog lights have also been upgraded. It is worth to focus on the massive grille, which perfectly harmonizes with the chrome bumper. The back of the new car can be said that it has a quiet design without any unusual elements. Unless attractive bumper with LED backlight deserve special attention.

Pleasing new moldings of arches for wheels 18-inch wheels. In the color range of the body color, three new colors were added: white mother-of-pearl, silver and brown.

Nearly The Same Interior

Once inside, any car enthusiast will pay attention to the quality finishing materials used to create the salon. This factor makes it clear that potential buyers will get a truly luxurious car. In addition, the interior decoration of the new Japanese can be safely compared with the cabin of a real SUV, as inside with great comfort can accommodate five people.

The salon is decorated in warm, gray tones. Slightly gloomy decoration is decorated with a modern steering wheel. The multimedia complex is represented by a 6-inch color touch screen.

The rearview mirror has an auto-dimming function. The list of new equipment also includes a new high-quality audio installation. Also, the air conditioning deflectors inside the car were improved.

Only One Engine

Speaking about the engine line of the ASX, first of all I would like to note the gasoline engine with a capacity of 2.4 liters, which develops 181 horsepower.

Presumably, a pair of work with it will be performed by an automatic 8-speed gearbox, which will ensure the new car excellent cross-country ability, even being in the water.
