Mitsubishi has announced the new ASX, a compact SUV supplied by Renault and developed specifically for the European market. The model will be manufactured at Renault's Valladolid plant in Spain and will be in Mitsubishi Motors' showrooms in select European markets from March 2023.

The new ASX features a flowing silhouette from the front to the rear, and the character line that rises toward the rear combines with the floating roof to give the vehicle more dynamic flair. An element of Mitsubishi Motors' Dynamic Shield design concept is added to the front face, with a robust grille staging the iconic three-diamond logo.

The new generation ASX features a wide range of powertrain options. Topping the lineup will be the plug-in hybrid model with a 1.6-litre gasoline engine, two electric motors (an alternator-starter and a main motor), an automatic, multi-mode gearbox, and a 10.5kWh battery.

The full hybrid model is comprised of a 1.6-litre gasoline engine with two electric motors, an automatic, multi-mode gearbox, and a 1.3kWh battery. The mild hybrid model combines a 1.3-litre direct injection turbo with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The entry model is available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline engine and a six-speed manual transmission.

Inside, a spacious cargo area and sliding rear bench enhance convenience for users. A Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) is located at the center of the instrument panel, and the Multi-Sense system controlled via the SDA allows the driver to select the drive mode that best suits their preference.
