Mitsubishi has simplified and streamlined its ASX range in the UK to contain a single and well-specified trim level dubbed Juro. Prices start from £19,195 OTR, for which you get enhanced styling both inside and out.
On the outside, it features a revised front grille, Dynamic Shield front styling, a chunky rear bumper, front fog lamps and 18-inch alloy wheels, all part of the standard equipment package.
Inside, you get climate control, Grand Luxe upholstery with front seat heaters, cruise control and Mitsubishi’s Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA), which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and also comes with DAB radio and a reversing camera. The only optional extra you can spend money on is the £525 (including VAT) available metallic paint.
Powering the ASX Juro is a 1.6-liter MIVEC petrol unit, producing 117 PS (115 HP) and 154 Nm (113 lb-ft) of torque. In a straight line, you can accelerate this crossover from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 182 km/h (113 mph). As for fuel economy, the Japanese automaker claims 41.5 UK mpg (6.8 l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 155 g/km.
The third-generation Mitsubishi ASX, also known as the Outlander Sport and the RVR, has been with us since 2010 and is a direct rival to the likes of the Honda HR-V, Nissan Qashqai and the rest of the sub-compact crossover segment.
