Wheels Magazine editor Bill Thomas said the ASX was a deserving winner thanks to its reasonable purchase price, economical fuel consumption and industry-leading warranty.

“The diesel ASX offers great value across the floor, making it a smart investment,” Thomas said.

Vehicles were assessed across a range of criteria including warranty, fuel economy, purchase price, depreciation, insurance costs, and service schedules and prices.

The diesel ASX beat competitors Hyundai ix35 and Honda CR-V to the top spot thanks to its 5.9L/100km combined-cycle fuel economy, low insurance cost and retained value after three years.

MMAL’s president and CEO, Gen Nishina, said the company was delighted to receive the accolade from such a respected publication.

“The ASX combines comfort and safety with economical driving and we are pleased that Wheels Magazine recognized the value and performance offered by the ASX,” Nishina said.

The Mitsubishi 4WD ASX diesel is powered by a 1.8-litre MIVEC engine with six-speed manual transmission and comes with superior safety features including seven airbags, Active Stability and Traction Control and reverse parking sensors.
