The new ASX 2017 from Mitsubishi - the addition to the "X" familyOleg Skrinnik
Not so long ago at the Los Angeles Motor Show was the official show of the new creation of Japanese developers -Mitsubishi ASX 2017(in the Japanese market it is offered under the name RVR, in the USA - Outlander Sport). It should be noted that this new product is just perfect in all respects. Of course, maximum attention should be paid to the exterior of the new product, from which this review will be launched.
A detailed review can be seen a number of elements inherited from previous versions of cars. We will not dwell on them and proceed immediately to innovations. In particular, head optics has undergone significant modernization.
Attention immediately falls on the original narrowed headlights of a new car, which are perfectly combined with smooth body lines, adding models of aggressiveness and dynamism. Fog lights have also been upgraded. It is necessary to focus on the massive grille, which is in perfect harmony with the chrome bumper.
About the back side of the new car, you can say that it is characterized by a calm design without any unusual elements. Is that attractive bumper with LED backlight deserve special attention.
Delight new wheel arch moldings 18-inch wheels. Three new colors were added to the range of body color colors: white pearl, silver and brown.
Once inside, any motorist will pay attention to the high-quality finishing materials used to create the cabin. This factor makes it clear that potential buyers will get a truly luxury car.
In addition, the interior of the new Japanese can be safely compared with the cab of a real SUV, as inside with more comfort can accommodate five people.
Salon trimmed in warm, gray tones. Slightly gloomy decoration decorated with modern steering wheel. The multimedia complex is represented by a 6-inch color touch screen. Rearview mirror has an auto-dimming function. The list of new equipment also includes a new high-quality audio installation.Air-conditioning deflectors inside the car have also been improved.
Regarding the functional features of the car, it is difficult to say that they produce an incredible impression, which is characteristic of all Japanese creations. So, on the front panel is a huge screen that allows the driver to monitor all the controls.
You can not ignore the comfortable seats, which are equipped with numerous adjustments that allow you to feel comfortable even when driving over the farthest distance.
The car will receive new exterior rear-view mirrors with integrated "turn signals", as well as with the electric folding function.
Overall dimensions of ASX 2017
Dimensions of cars increased significantly:
- In length, the new model reaches 4780 mm;
- Width corresponds to 1800 mm;
- The wheel base is 2800 mm;
- The height does not exceed 1800 mm;
- Ground clearance - 210 mm.
Fans of this brand will probably notice that the new ASX 2017 model year has grown in length by as much as 8 centimeters, compared with the previous modification. Also, future buyers will find a spacious luggage compartment, which will allow to transport bulk cargo.
Speaking about the engine lineup of the ASX 2017, first of all I would like to mention a gasoline engine with a capacity of 2.4 liters, which develops 181 hp of power. Presumably, the automatic eight-range gearbox will perform the double work with it, which will provide the new car with excellent cross-country ability, even while in the water.
As for the equipment offered by the car giant from Japan, it will be more than enough. Even the most picky buyers will be pleased with the novelty already in the basic configuration. Modern climate control, a lot of airbags, heated multifunction steering wheel and a lot of other content, which will provide the most optimal conditions during the ride.
The first who will be able to purchase ASX 2017 will be motorists of the Asian continent, which is not surprising. Presumably, in Russia, this car will be no earlier than the second half of 2017. The cost of the Japanese SUV has not yet been reported, of course, it will vary greatly depending on the configuration.
