The Mitsubishi ASX has been updated for the 2014 model year, gaining extra equipment, mechanical tweaks and revised prices.

Four of the six available ASX variants are now cheaper than before, with the entry-level front-wheel-drive petrol manual down $1000 to $24,990 and the flagship Aspire all-wheel-drive diesel auto down $3000 to $33,490.

Mitsubishi Australia has added 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille garnish, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera displayed in a 6.1-inch screen to the three base-spec ASX variants (2WD petrol manual, 2WD petrol CVT and 4WD diesel auto).

The updated high-grade ASX Aspire variants (2WD petrol CVT, 4WD petrol CVT and 4WD diesel auto) gain the MMCS infotainment system with seven-inch touchscreen and satellite navigation, as well as black roof rails and, for the 2WD model, a panoramic sunroof (previously standard on 4WD).

All models benefit from a reshaped rear bench seat base for added passenger comfort.

Revisions have also been made to the suspension and the shape of the door mirrors, promising improved ride and handling and NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) levels respectively.

Fine-tuning of the 110kW/197Nm 2.0-litre petrol engine has improved emissions incrementally, while the old 110kW/300Nm 1.8-litre diesel engine has now been discontinued and replaced by the 110kW/360Nm 2.2-litre diesel that launched locally last month.
