The 2019 Mitsubishi ASX is a compact crossover SUV that comes with affordable price. This SUV is a real family-favorite as it offers five seats and great safety rating. Five trim levels are in the offer and hybrid variant is available as well.
Similar to the Outlander model, the 2019 ASX is mainly sold on the European and Asian markets. The 2019 model will get deserved upgrades both in and out. That will include new exterior features and interior will get more standard equipment than before.
2019 Mitsubishi ASX exterior changes
The upcoming 2019 Mitsubishi ASX will arrive with the slightly different exterior. The overall design looks simple, however, new changes will improve aerodynamics and will add a sportier feel. The front end will get more badging and the new front bumper looks more aggressive.
The dimensions will stay intact and the stance is sporty as before. The ASX SUV is almost eight inches shorter than the Honda CR-V rival. Thanks to that, this SUV is easy to maneuver and park. Further changes include new LED running lights and the rear bumper that will also gain a meaner look. The roof rack is optional, and features like power-folding mirrors and electric wipers are standard.
Moreover, the 18-inch wheels are standard and 19-inch rollers are optional. The hybrid model will look basically the same, and the charging port is hidden up front on the driver’s side.
2019 Mitsubishi ASX interior will get a more standard equipment
The interior of the 2019 Mitsubishi ASX will stay intact. However, Mitsu decided to give its newest compact SUV more standard equipment as before. The rest of the cabin will remain, the layout of the seats and buttons is brilliant and the comfort is great. As we already wrote, there will be five trim levels.
Each trim level delivers more premium features and luxurious materials. With that in mind, now, even the base model is offering plenty of standard equipment. That includes a new 7-inch display and the center console that comes in slightly different design. Moreover, the heated steering wheel and a multi-view camera are standard too.
The padding is better than before and the black interior looks gorgeous. The light-gray interior scheme is available as an option and the seats are supportive and comfy.
The rear seats are offering decent legroom and the cargo area offers 20 cubic feet of space. Fold down the seats and the area will expand to the decent measures.

This compact crossover SUV will offer a 2.0-liter four-cylinder as the base engine. It produces 148 HP and 145 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but you can choose an optional CVT automatic transmission. Optional and larger 2.4-liter four-cylinder drivetrain is more recommendable.
It generates 168 HP and 167 lb-ft of torque. While not much powerful than the base unit, this engine is more quiet and smooth, so the drive is comfier and better. All-wheel drive configuration is standard with the optional unit, just like the CVT automatic gearbox.
