2017 Mitsubishi ASX Puts On A Fresh Face In Paris

Mitsubishi is about to introduce a refreshed version of its ASX crossover across Europe. But before it does, it’s putting it on display at the Paris Motor Show this week.

The exact same model is sold in the United States as the Outlander Sport, in Japan (and in Canada for some reason), the RVR, butut in Europe, Latin America, Australia, and most of Asia, it’s badged as the ASX.

Mitsubishi revealed the revised Outlander Sport almost a year ago at the 2015 LA Auto Show, but it’s taken until now to slap an ASX badge on it and get it over to Europe. Whatever you want to call it, the crossover sports a new front end with the brand’s “Dynamic Shield” design first seen on the 2014 Outlander PHEV Concept-S. It also benefits from a new shark-fin antenna, better-padded rear seats, and new fabric upholstery.

Otherwise, it’s essentially the same as the model available until now, which has been a big success for Mitsubishi. The company has sold over 1.1 million of them around the world since its launch in 2010 – 237,564 of which were sold in Europe, where the ASX is Mitsubishi’s second-most popular model, behind the bigger Outlander.
