Last year Overall SUV sales were down a little but the very small and small SUV sales held their ground. One in particular, from Mitsubishi, is doing very well as David Brown reports.
So far this year sales of the Mitsubishi ASX small SUV are down from a stellar 2019 growth but they still lead the segment.
The ASX is Mitsubishi’s second bestselling car behind the Triton ute. Like the previous Lancer sedan, this is a relatively quiet achiever.
Base and middle models get a 2.0 litre engine while top spec GSR and Exceed get a 2.4 litre.
The entry level has a manual and all others have a CVT gearbox.
This new model gets LED headlights, Day light running lights and fog lights. It looks good although nearly too busy at the front.
Priced between $24,000 and a bit over $33,000 plus on road costs
