Mitsubishi ASX 3 1.6 Petrol
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.6 3 ClearTec 5dr (Review date: 12th February '12)
The Mitsubishi ASX offers a great alternative to those want the practicality of a compact crossover, but also want something that looks a bit different and less common, I've been getting a fair few comments about the looks, mainly the jet-fighter front end.
The 1.6 petrol ASX is cheap to tax, cheap to insure, economical (official figures claim 47mpg, I'm getting 46mpg with a mixture of town and open road, so pretty good) and it's smooth on the road and very comfortable to drive. There is plenty of room and space for all kinds of clutter that kids seem intent on filling it with.
On the downside, having driven diesels for the last few years the lack of torque is very evident, and the gears and the revs need overtime if you want to make it go, which of course means a lot less mpg. Also, there is a tendency for the revs to hold during gear changes, which I believe can be overcome by a software change, but mine obviously hasn't had it. There is also a fair amount of road noise during motorway driving.
Overall though it's a great car to drive and you get plenty of extras which you may expect to have to pay for, such as heated seats, climate control and rear parking sensors, all of which I have found useful.

This car is blinking fab, it does all we need having 10 month old.
its quick if required and handles well to,brakes are outstanding.
The safety for value for money is great. my wife loves it, i do have one small pain to bear is 1st to 2nd gear change is a little notchy but apart from that we love it.
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.8 3 ClearTec 5dr 4WD (Review date: 29th December '11)
Had the car 1 week, love it in every way but one, the fuel consumption.
Fuel consumption, well this is a grey area, the computer recalculates so many times even on a short journey that i am either doing 70 mpg or 26 mpg depending. This has become so annoying that for my own peace of mind i will be manually checking next fill up. Also the digital fuel gauge was reading full at the petrol station then 8 miles later had already gone down a notch. The common consensus around the forums say 40 to 55 mpg depending on conditions but i do not believe the displayed readings. I will post my results.
Apart from this one negative i love this car, its looks, its comfort, its technology.
Excellent family car,impressive low emissions145g/km nimble quiet
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.8 4 ClearTec 5dr (Review date: 7th August '11)
My Mitsubishi is an truely excellent car, responsive when required and will trundle along nice and steady, and very economically when needed. Smooth 6 speed gear box, but being lazy I would have preferred an automatic. The car educates you on how to drive economically with a "gear shift indicator" which lets you know the optimum time to shift gear. It has auto stop & go, which is a little alarming at traffic lights and coming to a stand still, but as soon as required just touch the clutch and the car starts up immediately. I have on average got around 60mpg not bad I thought, so tried to see the best fuel consumption the car could do 90MPG!! But that was very steady driving. The drive is smooth, and plenty of room for a family. Boot space is good to with a hidden compartment to hide valuables.
This is a very clever car and has lots of "toys" the rear camera always impresses passengers, the car is a little too clever for me and would suit a person into all the gadgets, you can even play videos and the TV on the screen.
My one and only gripe about the car, no clock, well there is a tiny digital one, but it only diplays when the sat -nav or entertaiments is on, but that is my only grumble. All in all a 5star car.
ASX 3 Petrol
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.6 3 ClearTec 5dr (Review date: 19th July '11)
The ASX 3 is a great car, it is well equipped but on hindsite I should have purchased the ASX 4. Handling is suberb both on country lanes and on the motorway. Once you are used to it the Auto Stop and Go is fine.
Economy is great with on average returning 40 mpg (We tend to drive it hard). Disapointed that the petrol only has a five speed box that said we have just completed 15K hassle free miles.
Mitsubishi aftercare is extremely good and service costs were included for the first 36K miles.
This is our first Mitsubishi and on the whole its been a great purchase, with good running costs and overall value for money.
New ASX 3
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.8 3 ClearTec 5dr (Review date: 25th March '11)
The ASX 3 is a comfortable car, handles very well, Auto Stop and Go takes some getting used to but it's not a problem, restarts very quickly.
Economy is very good with on average 60mpg on a mixed cycle but primarily urban.
I have always trusted Mitsubishi for reliability after owning three cars from them, I did compare the Nissan Quashkai before purchase but found the ASX 3 better equipped and more stylish, it would have been better to have more versions with automatic as Im a lazy sod but the 6 gears arent a problem.
Mitsubishi aftercare is extremely good also.
MITSUBISHI ASX 1.6 3 ClearTec 5dr (Review date: 15th March '11)
this is my first £20,000 car and to be honest i dont think it is worth the price tag but who am i to say this only the onwer.
i feel it is very tinny all round body, but dont let me put you of it has now got 3600miles and has driven well in every mile fuel i feel i have had good mileage per gallon around 51miles this a 1.6 petrol and can pull you out of trouble on the road without any issues. in fact my manager has now bought one with deisel and says its the best car he has bought in all his years driving for costs and comfort for him and his family similar to myself .
when buying this car you get 3years serviceing which is a peace of your mind. recommed to all go get one now...
