Crossover vehicles have become a staple in the American market. Jeff D'Ambrosio Mitsubishi believes this is largely because the average consumer needs a model that can handle his or her multi-faceted life. That means delivering stellar performance with low fuel economy in a strong vehicle body that offers plenty of passenger space. Too much to ask of one simple car? Not when it comes to Mitsubishi. Then again, the innovative automaker doesn't exactly pump out "simple" models.
U.S. consumers have already grabbed on to highly-functional crossovers such as the Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Endeavor. Now, our fellow UK auto buyers will get a chance to revel in the model-bridging glory with the arrival of the new Mitsubishi ASX. We say "model-bridging" because the ASX offers a perfectly sweet combination of SUV functionality and small car performance.
Constructed on the same platform as the Outlander as well as the Mitsubishi Lancer, the new ASX urban crossover comes with a selection of petrol or diesel engines for its overseas consumers. These powertrain options along with available features make the ASX a well-rounded vehicle choice. Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors UK, says, "With the delivering excellent economy and emissions, versatility, as well as comprehensive standard equipment, and not to mention the reassuring safety features, the ASX has everything the crossover buyer is after."1
Sadly for us, the Mitsubishi ASX won't be arriving at Jeff D'Ambrosio Mitsubishi anytime soon. Not so sadly, however, the dynamic automaker is working on plenty of other models for 2013 that will be available along with our current new Mitsubishi lineup at 1221 E. Lancaster Ave. Downingtown, PA 19335. To find out more about the automaker's crossover installments or anything else brand-related, feel free to contact one of our team members online.
