Mitsubishi has revealed the second-gen ASX crossover, scheduled to go on sale in select European markets from March 2023. The model will be produced at Renault’s Valladolid plant in Spain. Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date I guess, but the new ASX has already been listed on Mitsubishi’s official Spain and France websites.
The new ASX might look very familiar to you, and that is because it is a Mitsubishi-badged second-gen Renault Captur. Other than replacing the badges, no effort has gone into incorporating any Mitsubishi design language elements whatsoever. I’m guessing it’s something to do with budget constraints. But anyway, depending on the trim, you get 17- or 18-inch wheels.
It’s the same story on the inside, obviously. You got a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster and a portrait-style 9.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In addition to standard ADAS tech, buyers can opt for MI-Pilot single-lane highway driving assist, which integrates Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Centering Assist.
Powertrain options depending on the market would include a 1.0L turbo petrol coupled with a 6-speed manual, a 1.3L mild-hybrid petrol coupled with a 6-speed manual, a 1.3L mild-hybrid petrol coupled with a 7-speed DCT, and 1.6L full hybrid (HEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) automatic options.
