Our Fleet Test Drive: Mitsubishi ASX - 8th report

Date: 23 March 2011   |   Author: Rachel Burgess

Gear lever
Category: Lower medium
P11D price: £17,549
Key rival: Nissan Qashqai

When the ASX arrived in the autumn last year it became immediately clear that something was seriously lacking: a sixth gear.

With fourth gear happily employed at 25mph, by the time a driver hits the national speed limit the ASX is begging for a sixth. Its absence means the car feels as if is being pushed too far, when in fact it's only doing 60mph. An extra gear would also help with fuel consumption figures, with one of the BusinessCar team suggesting this would be more relevant for an ASX-size car than the start/stop function.
