Mitsubishi ASX models overview
There are six models to choose from across the used Mitsubishi ASX range. Take a look at our overview of features:
The ES delivers a fuel efficiency of 7.7L/100km on its FWD 2.0L MIVEC petrol engine and 5-speed manual transmission (CVT auto is optional). It has 18-inch alloy wheels, 60:40 rear seat split folding, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, bluetooth connectivity, rear view camera, forward collision mitigation, active stability control, active traction control, and hill start assist. That’s a solid amount of equipment for a base model, enough to make the ES an excellent daily driver in city streets or on school runs.
ASX ES ADAS
The ES ADAS is auto CVT only, adding rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, auto high beam, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rain sensing wipers, dusk sensing headlights, and lane change assist. This model adds advanced driver-assistance systems on top of standard equipment, and the added value makes for a persuasive case for the ES ADAS.
The MR has everything from the base model, including a black finish on 18-inch wheels, black exterior door mirrors and radiator grille, keyless entry and start, privacy glass, fog lights, rear parking sensors, and rear view camera. If you’re set on the base model but prefer a more sporty personality, the MR is for you.
On top of everything from the ES ADAS, the LS model adds privacy glass, keyless entry and start, roof rails, and chrome inside door handles. The LS is at the middle of the range, with some added touches of convenience and practicality to the spacious and comfortable SUV.
With a 2.4L MIVEC petrol engine (7.9L/100km) and paddle shifters, the GSR offers a performance boost with improved control. You’ll get black finishes across exterior and interior stylings, red stitching on a leather wrapped steering wheel, gearshift, and park brake. The GSR has a sporty cool vibe, ideal for sprinting down city roads in style.
The Exceed is also fitted with a 2.4L MIVEC engine, and two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels. It is equipped with features from the LS, plus a panoramic roof, premium sound system, heated front seats, leather appointed seats, and auto headlight levelling. It’s got quite a few luxury inclusions, a larger engine, elevating the comfort and offers fantastic value for money.

All these intuitive safety innovations perform exceptionally well on used Mitsubishi ASX SUVs, keeping your entire family safe on the roads.
