Logos in the center of the rims and grille, more chrome paint flows, Mitsubishi lettering that spreads across the width of the tailgate… and that’s it! In addition to these few symptoms, the new generation of Mitsubishi ASX does not even bother to hide that he is true Renault Captur rebagged. Not only borrow the chassis and engine, but A pure and simple clone. Both interior and exterior are identical, and they are also manufactured in the same way as its French twin.
So he doesn’t much to do with the first generation ASX, launched in 2010 and whose career spanned nearly 12 years. Its predecessor, the height of 4.37, was between the SUV B and the compact. The Alien, which shows the same rating as the Captur, is therefore placed in the average category with a length of 4.23 mcompared to Volkswagen T-Roc (4.23 m), Peugeot 2008 (4.30 m), Ford Puma (4.18m) or Toyota Yaris Cross (m 4.18).
The method is very simple: the Mitsubishi range is reduced to a slope since the disappearance of pajero, Outlander and take L200it was difficult to maintain the brand in Europe on a list reduced to two models (celestial star and Eclipse cross) The manufacturer, a member of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, therefore did not look far expand its scope at low cost, shopping on the Diamond side. It was mainly to increase the share of electric models offered. ASX 2023 logically inherits hybrid engines (standard and PHEV, 145 and 160 hp) for Captur. We will also find the 4-cylinder 1.3 l TCe and micro-hybrid (140 hp) as well as the 3-1.0 cylinder of 90 hp at the entry level (from 24,990 €). First video preview.
