Review

Although the ASX is well equipped and has a decent enough infotainment system, there are too many areas in which it is poor for us to recommend it. Despite soft springing, it isn’t particularly comfortable on badly surfaced roads, while the engine's inflexible power delivery makes driving the ASX hard work at times. Factor in relatively tight rear space and poor efficiency, and it becomes clear that it’s a long way off the class best.

get the best price

Kicking off the range is Dynamic trim, which offers much of the equipment most buyers will really need. It includes 18in wheels, LED lights, keyless entry and start, a reversing camera, climate control, heated front seats and cruise control. It certainly compares well to more expensive entry-level Karoqs, Atecas and 3008s.

Although 148bhp sounds like plenty, you need to work the ASX’s engine hard to pick up speed quickly. Even then, it’s only as fast as 1.0-litre turbocharged rivals that on paper are less powerful. It’s also rather coarse and emits far more CO2 than rivals.
