Safety

The ASX was tested by Euro NCAP in 2011 and was awarded overall five-stars, the maximum rating. It scored 86% for Adult Occupant, 78% Child Occupant, 60% Pedestrian and 71% for Safety Assist. This compares to the comparable Nissan Qashqai which was tested in 2014 and which again scored a five star rating - 88% Adult Occupant, 83% Child Occupant, 69% Pedestrian and 79% Safety Assist.

Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock braking (ABS), Active Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist an Emergency Stop Signal System,>Hill Start Assist, ISOFIX child seat anchorages and seven airbags that includes a driver's knee bag.

Infotainment

The ASX ‘4’ is equipped with a Kenwood audio and satellite navigation system, which looks a little like an aftermarket unit. The navigation side of the system is good and very easy to use but the audio controls are complicated. Although the basic audio functions can easily be accessed from the steering wheel. It does include Bluetooth handsfree telephone connectivity, a FM/DAB radio tuner with single slot CD player and an iPod/MP3 via a USB connection port.

The Competition What We Liked What We Disliked Conclusion

We enjoyed our time with the Mitsubishi ASX, if fuel economy was better then it would come highly recommended, although it is not as polished as Nissan's Qashqai.

What the ASX is, a great rugged family car with the option of four-wheel-drive reassurance, well worth testing to see if it will fit in with your lifestyle.
