The order books are open for the locally-assembled Mitsubishi ASX ahead of its official line-off ceremony later this month at contract assembler Tan Chong Motor Assemblies‘ Segambut facility.

Both 2WD and 4WD variants are powered by a 150 hp/197 Nm 2.0 litre MIVEC engine that’s mated to an INVECS-III CVT with a six-step sports mode.

Regardless of which variant you choose, you get three airbags (including driver’s knee airbag), ABS, EBD, auto rain and light sensors, leather seats, navigation, front and rear parking sensors, a reverse camera, auto air-con and a high-contrast speedometer.


Besides four-wheel drive, the 4WD variant (above) adds on hill start assist, traction control function, active stability control, a panoramic roof, shift paddles, a push start button, security window tint, plus chrome surrounding the front grille and fog lamp housings.

The 2WD is priced at RM114,270 (CBU car was RM139,982) while the 4WD is priced at RM128,880, on-the-road excluding insurance. Black Mica, Titanium Grey, Cool Silver and Solid White body colours are available. Offered is a five-year warranty with unlimited mileage.
