Rear parking sensors on our ASX 3 1.6 petrol come as standard.
And as an SUV, plenty of owners will be glad of this feature to help manoeuvre into parking spaces. But a problem far from exclusive to Mitsubishi is the sensors' over-sensitivity. Our car is the latest with this annoying habit that means the driver, if relying mainly on the sensors, thinks the car is much nearer an object than it actually is. The over-reactive beeping can be prematurely unnerving, and witnessing the big gap behind the car after adhering to the beeps is a little frustrating.
