Driving the Mitsubishi ASX

We designed the new ASX for everyday adventures. It’s easy to drive, easy to park and with an electronically controlled 4WD system, it offers superb roadholding in the most demanding of conditions.

All Wheel Control (AWC) 4WD

Outstanding roadholding

The four wheel drive (4WD) system gives you better cornering, stability and handling. It does this by directing torque from the front to the rear axle when it detects the car slip, while Active Stability Control distributes torque and braking power to individual wheels to maintain a steady ride.

Drive Mode Selector

Greater traction when you need it

Enhance traction and stability further with the Drive Mode Selector switch on the centre console. Just press it until the mode you want appears in the Multi-Information Display on the dash. Choose between 2WD, 4WD AUTO or 4WD LOCK settings.

Normal roads


For economical driving on normal, dry roads and motorways.

Unpredictable roads


For enhanced traction, high speed stability and predictable handling.

Challenging roads


For slippery conditions such as snow-covered roads or sand, when you need maximum traction.

Paddle Shifters

Easy gear change

Sporty F1-style paddle shifters on the steering column mean you can change gears with a simple press. So your hands stay on the steering wheel and you stay more in control.

Approach Angle / Departure Angle

Take the high road

The body shape of the ASX has been designed so it can approach ground that slopes steeply upwards. The shape also allows it to come down off sloping ground too.

Auto Stop and Go System (AS&G)

Reduce fuel waste and emissions

The Auto Stop & Go system shuts off the engine at traffic stops. This cuts fuel waste and CO2 emissions without disrupting the electronic systems. The engine restarts immediately when you press the accelerator, so you can get on your way.

Cruise Control

Easier long distance driving

Cruise Control allows you to automatically maintain ASX's speed without keeping your foot on the accelerator pedal. This means more relaxed driving on longer journeys. To release it, simply press the brake pedal.

SUV Capability

Takes speed bumps in its stride

The ASX has all the benefits of an SUV. A high driving position allows you to see more of the road ahead, all while the high ground clearance and MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspensions give you smooth handling over rough roads — making speed bumps are less of a worry.
