The Rundown: 2016 Mitsubishi ASX

Want to know about the 2016 Mitsubishi ASX and only have a few minutes? Well, you are in the right place with this quick reference guide.

The Mitsubishi ASX is offered in just the two specification levels – LS and XLS and prices start from $24,990. Both grades are offered with a choice of two engines – 110kW/197Nm 2.0 litre petrol and 110kW/360Nm 2.2 litre turbo-diesel.

The LS grade of the ASX comes only in 2WD and there’s a choice of manual or CVT auto transmissions. The XLS is AWD and automatic, with the 2WD petrol version also coming with the CVT transmission, the diesel gets a traditional six-speed auto.
