Our Fleet Test Drive: Mitsubishi ASX - 7th report

Date: 28 February 2011   |   Author: Rachel Burgess

Steering wheel
Category: Lower medium
P11D price: £17,549
Key rival: Nissan Qashqai

My charming commute consists of the A1 and M25, which means numerous temporary 40mph and 50mph speed camera hot spots.

These would annoy the most tolerant of people (not me) and it's all too easy for speed to creep up in these sections, and before you know it, a letter comes through your postbox informing you of three points on your licence (so I?hear...). It's in such situations where cruise control really comes into its own. It's not unusual on the majority of cars for it to be a costly extra, but the Mitsubishi ASX proves itself once again in this respect, with the function being standard on the 3 trim level. With the controls on the right of the steering wheel, it doesn't take much to figure out how it works, which is a much-preferred option to the stalk controls found in some cars.

It's a solution that enables ASX owners to cruise safe in the knowledge they are driving at the correct speed while drivers of luxury cars have to pay a premium and value-car drivers often go without.
