The 2017 Mitsubishi ASX, like many SUVs created by manufacturers, makes excellent use of customisation to give customers a personalised experience. The 393-litre boot capacity is especially generous, and the higher-spec variantspack in some extra features that will certainly tempt many customers to splash out.

Critically, the four-wheel drive option is not available at the entry level, but neither is satellite navigation, reverse camera, keyless entry, or the panoramic sunroof. And if you’re after a five-star interior to complement the five-star safety rating that the ASX has, you’ll need to look at the top-end variant, which offers blue LED lighting and premium leather seats.

Another key point to make is that you can get the 2017 ASX with manual transmission; however, you can only get this option on the two-wheel variant. This seems a little perplexing, as manual transmission seems like it would be of more practical use in conditions where the use of four-wheel drive is beneficial. Nevertheless, the option for manual does exist in at least one form, so it’s not a total loss for manual purists.

Engine-wise, the ASX comes in three engine varieties: a 2.0-litre diesel engine, 2.0-litre petrol engine, and a 2.2-litre direct-injection diesel engine; all three engines are notable for their efficiency. The ASX’s rigid chassis will you give you a smoother ride compared to most other SUVs on the market.

Of special importance to four-wheel drive users is the ASX’s hill-hold feature, which, for those of you who don’t know,will prevent your car from rolling back on uphill surfaces; this feature is present in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive variants.

In conclusion, the 2017 ASX is safe but sluggish, but its technical features and minor upgrades continue to make the ASX a solid candidate for those in the SUV market.
