Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, officially launched the first locally-assembled Mitsubishi ASX yesterday. The stylish designed urban compact SUV offers two mobility 2WD and 4WD and is now available at all Mitsubishi showrooms nationwide.
The 2014 local assembled ASX prices start from RM114,743.50 for the 2WD variant, 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 who have successfully registered their 2014 ASX vehicle will also be rewarded with a Special Leather case. *Terms and conditions apply.
“All cars produced by Mitsubishi Motors worldwide are governed by high quality standard set by Mitsubishi Motors which ensures consistent quality level of all Mitsubishi cars. This means the cars that are locally assembled will have the same quality level with models assembled in Japan,” said Tetsuya Oda, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
The ASX was developed to combine the utility and practicality of an SUV with the comfort of a sedan in just the right size, with high ride point, easy maneuvering, good handling and comfort for active driving fun.
The 2014 ASX mid-size SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre MIVEC engine with 150 PS of power and 197 Nm of torque. Two variants are available – 2WD and 4WD – and both use a smooth INVECS-III CVT (continuous variable transmission) with Sports Mode.
Safety wise, the ASX comes with three airbags, ABS and EBD are standard across the range, while the 4WD variant adds on Traction Control, Active Stability Control (ASC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA). The agile and easy handling ASX has a class leading turning radius of 5.3 meters. Both CKD (Completely Knocked Down) ASX variants are equipped with automatic lights and wipers (auto rain and light sensors), leather seats, GPS navigation, front and rear parking sensors with reverse camera, automatic air conditioning and a high contrast instrument panel.
Exclusive equipment for the 4WD includes a panoramic roof, steering paddle shifters, push start button and solar/security window tint. To date, Mitsubishi Motors operates 57 showrooms (out of which 40 are 3S Centres) and 50 service outlets throughout Malaysia.
