Mitsubishi to show ASX crossover at Geneva
By David Wilkins
Wednesday 20 January 2010
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has shown the first pictures of its ASX crossover, which it plans to launch at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The car will have a new 1.8 litre diesel engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, and will also join the increasing number of models featuring a fuel-saving "stop-start" system that cuts the engine at rest and automatically restarts it when the driver re-engages gear.
Apart from that, details of the ASX are scant, which makes it difficult to assess exactly where it will slot into the market, but it seems closest in concept to Nissan's successful Qashqai. Mitsubishi is keen to capitalise on the good reception accorded to its larger Outlander crossover, which is also sold in modified form by its partner PSA Peugeot Citroën as the Peugeot 4007 and Citroën C-Crosser. There is no word yet on whether the ASX will appear with anyone else's badge on it, though.
