The Mitsubishi ASX, the brand’s cheapest SUV and Australia’s best-selling small SUV, moves into 2021 unchanged except for modestly higher prices.

The entry price into the ASX range is the same at $23,990 before on-road costs for the ES manual, but the next cheapest models are now the ES ADAS auto and MR auto at $27,990 before on-road costs.

Mitsubishi has axed the ES auto as it has with the 2021 Outlander range. It previously slotted neatly between the ES manual and ES ADAS auto in terms of price. Additionally, all models bar the ES manual see a price increase of $250.

A handsome facelift in 2019 has helped the Mitsubishi ASX fend off much newer competition. The ASX is somewhat of an anomaly on the new car market, actually increasing its sales numbers yearly since its launch with the exception of a single year.

It’s still the best-selling small SUV by some margin, with 9716 sales through the end of September, but the Hyundai Kona and Kia Seltos are rapidly gaining ground. They’ve posted higher monthly tallies in the past couple of months, though they’re still off by around 1000-3000 units year-to-date.

You can use the official Mitsubishi ASX configurator to build and price up one of these yourself.

If you’re seeking finance, Mitsubishi has a finance calculator which may help you better understand overall cost.


Most 2020 Mitsubishi ASX models use a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine producing 110kW and 197Nm. It’s mated to a continuously-variable transmission (CVT), though the base ES comes standard with a five-speed manual.

The 2020 Mitsubishi ASX GSR and Exceed use a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing 123kW and 222Nm and mated exclusively to a continuously-variable transmission (CVT).

All ASXs are front-wheel drive.

You can view the different engine specifications across the range on the official Mitsubishi ASX page or you can request a brochure from the Mitsubishi website.

When equipped with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder, the 2020 Mitsubishi ASX consumes 7.6L/100km on the combined cycle with the CVT and 7.7L/100km with the five-speed manual.

With the 2.4-litre four-cylinder, the 2020 Mitsubishi ASX consumes 7.9L/100km on the combined cycle.

All ASX models run on 91RON regular unleaded fuel.

The Mitsubishi ASX’s total luggage space is 393L, increasing to 1193L with the rear seats folded.


When the Mitsubishi ASX was tested by ANCAP in 2014, it received a rating of five stars.

This rating was based on a frontal offset score of 14.13 out of 16 and a side impact score of 16 out of 16. Whiplash and pedestrian protection were rated Good and Acceptable, respectively.

All 2020 Mitsubishi ASX models come standard with autonomous emergency braking, anti-lock brakes, and front, front-side and curtain airbags plus a driver’s knee airbag.

The 2020 Mitsubishi ASX requires servicing every 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.

Mitsubishi often throws in two years of free servicing but otherwise offers ten years of capped price servicing, with most services costing $299 except for years 6, 8 and 10 which cost $599. If you service with Mitsubishi, your warranty is ten years or 200,000km, whichever comes first.

Servicing out of network reduces that to five years and 100,000km.
