MIT­SUBISHI has in­tro­duced ad­vanced safety fea­tures and de­sign up­dates to its pop­u­lar ASX SUV range.

The ASX line-up will also in­tro­duce a new mid-level LS ADAS (Ad­vanced Driver-As­sist Sys­tems) model with For­ward Col­li­sion Mit­i­ga­tion, Lane De­par­ture Warn­ing and au­to­matic high beam fea­tures.

Top-of-the-range XLS also adopts th­ese fea­tures. Ex­te­rior changes in­clude a re­vised front end with in­te­grated LED day­time run­ning lamps and fog lamp lower bezel.

Ex­te­rior changes also ex­tend to the rear with a new bumper and tail­gate de­sign.

All 2018 mod­els gain the lat­est smart­phone con­nec­tiv­ity tech­nol­ogy with Mit­subishi’s Smart­phone link Dis­play Au­dio and DAB ra­dio.

To com­ple­ment the new smart­phone tech­nol­ogy, the new cen­tre con­sole has two USB ports and a mo­bile phone tray.

To re­duce cabin noise lev­els, the 2018 ASX has been up­graded with new acous­tic ab­sorp­tion ma­te­ri­als.

ASX has a five-star safety rat­ing, in­clud­ing seven airbags, re­vers­ing sen­sors and cam­era and Rise (Re­in­forced Im­pact Safety Evo­lu­tion) safety cell body struc­ture.

Pric­ing starts from $25,000, climb­ing to $37,500.
