I blame Land Rover. I’m sure it was them who first came up with the idea of ‘mood’ lighting in the Range Rover.
All the great innovations we see in posh cars finally filter down the food chain. And so it is with the latest version of the Mitsubishi ASX.
Press the key fob at night and the SUV turns the air blue inside! It’s quite startling the first time – I’ve never seen anything quite so in your face for mood lighting.
And that’s not all. Open the panoramic sunroof and a strip of yellow lights illuminate down both sides of the glass hatch.
A little bling perhaps? Well, it does give the ASX some personality – provided you are in the right mood, of course…
