The ASX Sport is a cross-over SUV for the stylish adventurer, offering space, practicality, safety and versatility with sporty looks for sporty people.
Based on the Mitsubishi ASX GLX and available in grey and white, the new Mitsubishi ASX Sport also offers massive added value of R30 000 extras at the same price including a touch-screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto and the fuel efficiency of a smaller car.
Already boasting a host of standard features found in the standard ASX GLX, including daytime running lights, flexible seating and generous boot space as well as advanced passive and active safety technology, including a 7-airbag system and HID headlights, the ASX Sport adds a host of new features at no extra cost.
Featuring sporty looks with matching credentials and Mitsubishi’s renowned 2.0-litre MIVEC engine coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission, the ASX Sport is now upgraded and refined for improved performance and style.
The ASX Sport, which has a 63-litre fuel tank, consumes 7.5 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, giving it a range of around 800 km on the open road.
The ASX Sport’s 2.0-litre powerhouse has a light aluminium block for optimum performance, while MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system) technology provides optimal valve timing at both low and high rev ranges for more responsive driving. The 1998cc, 4-cylinder Multi-point Fuel Injection engine produces 110kW of power at 6000rpm and 197Nm of torque at 4200rpm.
This new generation engine provides fuel economy of just 7.5 litres per 100km. With a 63-litre tank capacity, this fuel efficiency translates into more than 800km of travel on a single tank.
The ASX Sport has the same advanced passive and active safety technology found in the ASX GLX, including 7 airbags increasing occupant safety in every seat. The ASX Sport’s advanced RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) Body Construction offers all-direction collision safety and rigidity for on and off-road driving. This offers improved safety for all occupants.
Enhancing the ASX Sport’s safety performance, it comes fully equipped with Electronic Traction Control, Hill Start Assist, Side Impact Protection Bars, Collapsible Steering Column, Brake Pedal Recession Protection and Whiplash Injury Reduction Seats.
