Review

Being only 5ft 2inches, I rarely get the experience to feel taller than everyone else, so driving the ASX and having a higher seating position is still quite a novelty for me and I must admit I feel rather smug towering over other drivers.

SUV’s have been growing in popularity over the past few years and the ASX can sometimes be overlooked in what is now a very crowded sector.

Our long termer, the ASX 3 1.8 Diesel 4WD, is a solid all-round performer, the car is easy to drive and manoeuvres well in all environments.  The steering is light and the engine has enough performance to satisfy most with 114bhp available and a 0-60 time of 10.6 seconds. 

There is very little to criticise, Mitsubishi have created an economical car that looks good and offers value for money with some impressive equipment.

The surroundings are comfortable and spacious, my only real negative would be the engine, which can be noisy at times.

The official economy figure of 54.3mpg, although not class-leading, is achievable if I knuckle down on eco driving, however, a more realistic figure for every day driving would be between 43 and 47mpg.

After only two months with our ASX long termer, it is time to hand the keys over to a colleague and, for me, adjust to being short again.
