The exterior design has undergone a major overhaul according to the “robust and ingenious” design philosophy that serves as the expression of MMC’s global drive “Drive your Ambition.”
The ASX is a compact urban SUV that offers great adaptability and makes it perfect for everything from daily use to exciting adventures. Its light, compact structure, combined with the dominant visual axes of an SUV, gives the ASX the excellent and easy handling.

Major design changes
The concept of design is “Impact and Impulse”. Like Mitsubishi’s characteristic force, refined and original design projects a strong image, inviting the driver to follow his impulses and accept new challenges.

The bumper protects the central part from both sides, and the horizontal and vertical squares of the grille along with the bumper at the bottom express strength and strength. The distinctive layout of LEDs, with turn signals and fog lamps at the bumper ends, prints a distinctive image.
ASX uses combined LED rear lamps (except for turn signals) in a penetrating design that stretches across the width of the car and accentuates its comprehensive posture. The bumper protection bumper style projects a picture of the force.
The ASX will be available in Red, bright and intense Diamond, Sporty and energetic Sunshine and Shiny and Refined Brown.
