Mitsubishi ASX

Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) has finally unveiled the much awaited compact crossover vehicle in the market at the 3rd Philippine International Motor Show. Known as the RVR in other countries, the new Mitsubishi model will be called here in the Philippines as the ASX, which stands for “Active Sports Crossover”.

The new Mitsubishi ASX will hit your nearest Mitsubishi dealers late August and is available in three variants, namely: GLS SE CVT 6-speed Sportronic (4WD), GLS CVT 6-speed Sportronic (2WD), and the GLX MT 5-speed Manual (2WD).

The ASX is packed with features such as: a multi-information display meter and a 6.2-inch touch screen LCD monitor with a built-in DVD/CD/MP3/WMA player, that also provides a GPS Navigation system for the GLS and GLS SE models.

Under the hood is Mitsubishi’s 4B11 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC MIVEC engine that gives you ample power in a compact body. The multi-select 4WD system available for the GLS SE model enables the driver to be better-equipped to maneuver in more difficult road conditions.

According to Mitsubishi product planning manager Mr. Leo Samonte, the Mitsubishi ASX will “give the Hyundai Tucson, Kia Soul, Kia Sportage, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-7, Chevrolet Captiva, Nissan X-Trail, Nissan Grand Livina, Suzuki SX-4 Crossover and the Suzuki Grand Vitara a noteworthy competition”.

Price:

GLS SE CVT 6-speed Sportronic (4WD) = PHP 1.498 million
