In 1999, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance was created, which together sell more than 1 in 9 vehicles worldwide. The 2023 Mitsubishi ASX crossover is an example of component sharing within the alliance.
The new generation ASX will be offered in five powertrain options and several equipment packages. The base ASX will be powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo gasoline engine with 90 hp (66 kW) and 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. There is also a 1.3-liter four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine combined with hybrid technology (MHEV) with 140 hp (103 kW) and 160 hp (118 kW). Power is transmitted to the front axle via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The hybrid ASX is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor with a total output of 145 hp (107 kW). In the PHEV version, Mitsubishi offers a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor with a total power of 160 hp (118 kW). It is equipped with a 10.5 kWh battery that provides an electric range of 49 km (31 miles).
Each ASX comes with an active safety system, and more luxurious models have an adaptive digital instrument panel instead of the analog one that comes with the base version.
At the moment, it is not known how much the 2023 Mitsubishi ASX will cost, which will reach the first customers in the first quarter of next year.
