The first part of the purchase advice dealt, among other things, with the important points: space, comfort and safety. No less important, of course, is the price. So here are the prices of the Mitsubishi ASX considered in detail.
The prices of the Mitsubishi ASX at a glance:
At the time of this article, Mitsubishi is offering what is known as an “Intro Edition”. Both as a 1.6 petrol engine and purely front-wheel drive, as well as in the 1.8 diesel variant with purely front-wheel drive. The petrol engine in this “Intro Edition” costs € 21.990 and the diesel € 25.490.
Intro Edition in view
This intro edition is based on the “Invite” and also comes with 17 inch light alloy rims, tinted windows in the second row - Mitsubishi calls it “Privacy Glass”, heated seats in the front, electrically folding exterior mirrors and a reduced price for the metallic paintwork .
Incidentally, the basic equipment of the Invite already has fog lights, an automatic climate control, USB interface for the radio with six speakers. Also included: the cruise control, a light and rain sensor and of course electric windows and the radio central locking.
Looking at the direct competitors, then Mitsubishi has put together a really attractive offer.
In my opinion, all-wheel drive belongs to an SUV. Especially since Mitsubishi gives you a really good all-wheel drive. With the all-wheel drive models there is the possibility to switch to pure front-wheel drive in order to save “fuel”. I couldn't understand this effect during my test drives - but the option alone may impress the gas foot and drive more sensitively afterwards. If you leave the selector switch on 4wd, the all-wheel drive system automatically transfers power to the rear if the front axle slips. It works amazingly fast - but if you prefer rigid all-wheel drive, you can choose 4wd Lock and get a rear-biased and constant power distribution to all four wheels. On asphalt, however, you can feel the tension in the drivetrain when cornering slowly and slowly. For gravel paths and snow-covered roads, however, the 4wd Lock is just right.
The surcharge for the all-wheel drive is 1.800 Euro.
