Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has announced that the locally-assembled Mitsubishi ASX is now on sale in showrooms nationwide. The CKD ASX, the first modern Mitsubishi to be made in Malaysia, was given a line-off ceremony at Tan Chong Motor Assemblies in Segambut last month. TCMA is the contract assembler.

The facelifted CKD ASX is powered by a 2.0 litre four-cylinder with 150 PS and 197 Nm of torque. The MIVEC engine is paired to an INVECS-III CVT gearbox with six virtual ratios, and one can choose between 2WD and 4WD variants, the latter with the ability to lock drive at 50:50 for both axles.

The ASX has been available here as a CBU import from Japan since late 2010, but only in front-wheel-drive form – the 4WD variant is new to our market.

Prices start from RM114,743.50 for the 2WD (CBU car was RM139,982), while the 4WD is priced at RM128,879.50, both on-the-road without insurance. Available in four colours – Black Mica, Titanium Grey, Cool Silver and Solid White – the ASX comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty. The first 300 customers will also get a “special leather case” from MMM.
