New Mitsubishi ASX 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Nissan Qashqai-rivalling SUV now costs more

Mitsubishi Australia has increased the pricing of some variants of its current-generation ASX small SUV.

While the entry-level ES grade costs the same as before, all other versions are $250 more expensive, excluding the LS variant that has copped a $200 rise.

As such, the ASX now ranges in price from $23,990 to $33,240 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below). Specification hasn’t changed.

A Mitsubishi Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide the adjustments to the Nissan Qashqai rival came in response to exchange-rate pressures.

Six front-wheel-drive grades are still on offer: entry-level ES and ES ADAS, mid-range MR, LS and GSR; and flagship Exceed.

A 110kW/197Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine powers the ES, ES ADAS, MR and LS, while a 123kW/222Nm 2.4-litre unit motivates the GSR and Exceed.

The former can be had with a five-speed manual in the ES, while both engines are otherwise mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
