The Mitsubishi ASX competes in one of the most competitive segments in UK. Rivals such as the top-selling Nissan Qashqai, classy Audi Q3 and value-packed Dacia Duster make it hard work for any new car to compete, but Mitsubishi has tried hard to make its ASX stand out.
Here’s a quick guide to the car’s dimensions to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. We’ll also compare it to its closest rivals to see how it fares.
Remember to put the Mitsubishi ASX in our car configurator to find the best deals on a new one.
Mitsubishi ASX exterior dimensions
The ASX is quite a neatly sized vehicle – ever so slightly shorter than rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan yet still manages to appear substantial thanks to a wider body and higher roof than those cars. Interestingly, the ASX is sandwiched between the Skoda Yeti and Dacia Duster in terms of overall size, probably the two models it competes most with.
|Height (4WD versions)||1,625mm (1,635mm)|
Mitsubishi ASX interior dimensions
Thanks to the high roof and wide cabin, the ASX has plenty of space inside for passengers. Headroom is noticeably better than the Duster’s and, in terms of both headroom and legroom, the Mitsubishi is only slightly behind the significantly larger Ford Kuga.
Mitsubishi ASX boot space
Unfortunately, more space for passengers means there’s less space for luggage in the ASX than in some rivals. The Volkswagen Tiguan and Dacia Duster have nearly 60 litres more, and even the Nissan Qashqai pips it to the most with a load bay of 430 litres.
This gap grows considerably if you need to fold down the rear seats. It’s worth noting, however, that the ASX is priced similarly to many family hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf which offer considerably less room.
|Boot space (seats up)||419 litres|
|Boot space (seats folded)||1,193 litres|
Mitsubishi ASX fuel tank and turning circle
Economical engines combined with reasonably large fuel tanks mean the ASX can go pretty far between fill-ups if needs be. The most efficient model can theoretically cover 810 miles if official consumption figures are to be believed. That’s generally the same as rivals, although the most frugal Qashqais can go beyond the 900-mile mark on a single tank. The 10.6-metre turning circle is, again, similar to competitors and should ensure that car park manoeuvres are handled without too much difficulty.
|Fuel tank (diesel versions)||60 litres (63 litres)|
|Turning circle||10.6 metres|
Mitsubishi ASX weight and towing limits
The ASX isn’t a heavy car and, at between 1,260-1,540kg, it’s noticeably lighter than the Tiguan and Kuga, and broadly in line with the likes of the Qashqai and new Honda HR-V. Unfortunately, if you’re looking to tow with your Mitsubishi you may have to look at some of its rivals as the ASX is rated fairly low for its class.
