Refreshed Mitsubishi ASX will feature updated styling, interior trim and a new engine

Mitsubishi has revealed the facelifted ASX at the Geneva motor show.

The main update to the ASX is the revised styling, which incorporates Mitsubishi’s new corporate front-end, with revised grille and chrome trim. The design was first introduced on the Outlander PHEV and is due to be rolled out across more Mitsubishi models as product cycles progress.

Also new to the ASX is a shark-fin antenna and the addition of 18in alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, gloss black trim on the steering wheel and revised rear seats and upholstery.

A new engine has also been added to the ASX: a 1.6-litre diesel with 112bhp and stop-start function. The motor will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive ASX models, although Mitsubishi is yet to confirm fuel economy or emissions figures. Mitsubishi also claims that service intervals are extended with the facelifted ASX.

The facelifted ASX is likely to go on sale in September 2016, with prices in line with the current ASX and rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-5.

The body coloured section at the top of the grille serves to remind you that this is a facelift of a previous design. I actually see quite a few ASX on the road, though I always mistake the rear for the new Vitara.

My neighbour has one, he loves his.
