It’s not a bad car – it’s just not going to rock your world either. Reliable, roomy, no-nonsense – the Mitsubishi ASX otherwise lacks character and looks a bit dull.
For a more head-turning design, buyers will probably opt for the Nissan Qashqai (why can’t I spell that correctly first time?), or the rather excellent Mazda CX-5.
I feel the 2.2 diesel is now long in the tooth and could be replaced by something more lively and economical. The interior is rather tired too.
Sure, it comfortable and the seats are excellent but the ASX also feels light and rather flighty along a potholed A-road.
There are plenty of options in this marketplace. The ASX might work for you but shop around first.
