MITSUBISHI ASX Estate 1.6 3 5dr

The 3 trim is the pick of the ASX range, with plenty of equipment as standard. Two-wheel-drive should help fuel bills, but we’d opt for the diesel version instead.

Engines

2.2 Auto 4WD
This diesel engine is available only with a six-speed automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive and top-spec 4 trim, making it the priciest ASX you can buy. It provides useful extra torque compared with the 1.8 diesel, but performance isn’t much stronger overall and it’s not as fuel efficient. Unless you really need an auto, we’d suggest going for the smaller diesel engine.
1.6
This petrol version is available only on the entry-level 2 and 3 trims, with front-wheel drive and a five-speed manual gearbox – there’s no automatic β€˜box or four-wheel drive. Considering its size, we would expect more performance from the 1.6-litre petrol. Although it is adequate and relatively flexible, the pace it delivers is no better than a Seat Ateca 1.0 TSI or Nissan Qashqai 1.2 DIG-T, while both those offer better CO2 emissions and average fuel consumption. We’d go for the punchier 1.6-litre diesel instead.
