Mitsubishi ASX – Make Every Day an Adventure
With the Mitsubishi ASX, General Automotive Company, the official distributor of Mitsubishi Vehicles in Oman, offers new car buyers the practicality and space of an SUV with the dynamic handling and on-road comfort of a passenger car. The Mitsubishi ASX also offers renowned triple-diamond reliability combined with a stylish design and class-leading safety and fuel saving technology coupled with dynamic handling and performance, making every journey an adventure.
Commenting on the Mitsubishi ASX, Rajesh Sharma, the National Marketing Manager of General Automotive Company said, “Whilst the evergreen Pajero and L200 heavy-duty 4x4s are known for their workhorse abilities targeting essentially professional users, the ASX represents a sharper, smaller and sportier alternative, more akin to traditional passenger cars yet remaining consistent with the Brand's sporty 4x4 heritage. As a result, the ASX has a smart and energetic design, earth-conscious engineering, and amenities to satisfy even the most active lifestyle.”
Featuring a design optimised for space, aerodynamics and efficiency, the ASX’s grille shares a strong family likeness with the Lancer's or Outlander's. However, it is framed within a more substantial looking clip, itself merging with a sculptured bonnet featuring a double bulge: this serves the dual purpose of contributing to better pedestrian safety, short overhang notwithstanding, and also to make the body more visible to the driver, improving manoeuvrability around town. At the rear, the ASX offers a low and wide silhouette highlighted with a sharp aerodynamic lip at the bottom of the backlight and slim slanted combination lamps.
Consistent with the exterior, ASX's cabin reflects a clear sense of ‘dynamic quality’ as expressed through the hooded meter cluster shared with Outlander, the soft padding around the centre instrument panel itself extending to the door trim or the carefully applied silver accents either side of the audio system or along the door panels. Stylishly restrained, ASX's interior is also a very pleasant place to lounge in, whether in its layout, its functionality or its features. The ASX also provides a surprisingly elevated seat position that, with the sloping hood design that gives a better view of the road for easier manoeuvring and greater safety. The raised hip point also allows for smoother entrances and exits, and greater comfort.
Making the best use of a generous 2.67m wheelbase, the 5-seater ASX brings a comprehensive set of utility features well suited to both its nimble size and the likely loading needs of lifestyle drivers with up to 384 litres of available cargo capacity available with five passengers on board. The tailgate is wide enough to provide ample space for even the bulkiest items, and the low floor height makes it convenient to move heavy cargo in and out. To carry even larger items, the rear seat can be folded down completely flat to create an expansive cargo space.
The lounge-like cabin atmosphere continues with equipment such as; radio CD w/MP3, AUX-in and 4 speakers, Automatic air conditioning, 2 airbags, Floor console box, Rear parking sensors, Power steering with audio and cruise control, Bluetooth hands free and much more.
When it comes to performance and fuel economy, ASX is equipped with a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine that uses a lightweight aluminium block for optimum performance as it puts out 110kW (150PS), allowing it to take control of city streets and open highways alike. MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control) technology provides optimal valve timing at both low and high rev ranges, to give the most of every curve and straightaway out there.
As a part of its limited time ‘Summer Knockout Deals’ promotion, which ends on May 21, Mitsubishi is offering the ASX with free insurance for one year, a free 2-year / 30,000km service package and special cash gift offers of up to OMR 500 per vehicle. The ASX also comes as standard with 6-year unlimited mileage warranty and 6-year roadside assistance.
