For now, it will only be sold in European markets
Mitsubishi recently premiered the new generation ASX for the European market at an online event. Also sold as the Mitsubishi RVR and the Outlander Sport in some countries, the ASX was first introduced in Europe in 2010.
Based on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance CMF-B platform, the new ASX is a compact SUV supplied by Renault and developed specifically for the European market, which means that it could not be making its way here to Malaysia.
Essentially a twin of the Renault Captur compact SUV, the all-new Mitsubishi ASX 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 which rises toward the rear combines with the floating roof to give the vehicle a dynamic styling that expresses its agile driving.
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. Further, sleek body sides and wide shoulders emphasize the powerfulness of the vehicle as it firmly grips the ground.
The new generation ASX features a wide range of powertrain options to match today's varying needs in Europe. Topping the line-up will be the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, two electric motors (an alternator-starter and a main motor), an automatic, multi-mode gearbox, and a 10.5 kWh battery.
