Mitsubishi throws some light cosmetic enhancements onto its aging ASX to give it a showroom boost

One of the most popular – and oldest – small SUVS in Australia has been given a late-life pep with the addition of the ASX Black Edition to Mitsubishi’s local showrooms.

Based on the base model ASX ES CVT, the Mitsubishi ASX Black Edition retails for $26,740 – just $1250 more than the model it's based on. That makes its value proposition enticing, given it adds fog-lamps, privacy glass, rear parking sensors and keyless entry/ignition to the ES' specification list.

There are also cosmetic upgrades in the form of black-painted alloy wheels, mirror casings and front skid plate, along with a chrome exhaust tip. Inside, red contrast stitching, alloy pedals and leatherette/microsuede upholstery add a more premium feel to the ASX’s cabin, however the rest of the feature list is identical to the ES.

That means there’s no autonomous emergency braking (AEB), blind spot monitoring, rain-sensing wipers or dusk-sensing headlamps available, all of which are standard on every ASX grade above the ES and Black Edition.

Available in three colours – black, titanium and white – just 1000 Black Editions will be available.

The arrival of the Black Edition comes just weeks after Mitsubishi Australia announced a substantial rejig of its ASK lineup, with the price of entry dropping to $23,490 for the base ES manual and AEB safety gear being rolled out across the bulk of the range.

At the same time Mitsubishi removed the diesel-engined AWD option, leaving a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol with 110kW and 197Nm as the sole powertrain for the ASX family.
