Mitsubishi is knocking around £1500 of the price of the ASX crossover for 2014

MITSUBISHI has tweaked the ASX crossover range for 2014. The main news is the arrival of an automatic transmission option for the first time – and some chunky price cuts that should make the ASX more competitive against important rivals such as the new-generation Nissan Qashqai.

The entry point for the new range is £14,999 for the two-wheel drive ASX2 with a 1.6-litre petrol engine – a saving of of £1500 compared with the old price. A mid-range 1.8 diesel ASX3 comes in at £18,750 instead of the previous £20,599. A 1.8 diesel with the top ASX4 trim (now with a glass panorama roof) and four-wheel drive now costs £22,499 (was £24,895).

The new automatic transmission is paired with a 2.2-litre diesel engine, all-wheel drive and ASX4 trim. This model tops the revised range at 23,899 – although with combined fuel consumption of 48.7 mpg and CO2 emissions of 153g/km it’s not really going to be a company car tax winner compared with some competitors with smaller capacity diesels.
