2018 Mitsubishi ASX XLS AWD Diesel review


Sure the ASX has been tweaked, fettled and refocussed over the years, but the segment has moved a long way forward from where it was in 2010 too. Plenty of contenders shape up as hard to beat options, with some priced just as sharply as the ASX – the Honda HR-V being one particular example. Read our full pricing and specification guide for all the details, but the XLS we have has recently copped some extra kit including AEB, lane departure warning and auto high beam.

How then, does the diesel stack up in the city-focused SUV segment? Let’s find out.

The AWD XLS grade we’re testing here is the top of the ASX tree, with pricing starting from $37,500. Our test vehicle only has premium metallic red paint added to that at a cost of $590. Standard equipment highlights include: AEB, lane departure warning, auto high beams, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto (with no proprietary sat nav), 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and start, automatic wipers and headlights, two-stage heated front seats, power driver’s seat, panoramic glass roof, LED mood lighting, leather seat facings, keyless entry and push button start.
