Mitsubishi's 2013 ASX crossover has debuted in New York this week, bringing a light update to the exterior styling and interior trim options.
Up front, the updated SUV gets a chrome-framed grille, darkened headlights and a smoothed-out bumper with larger foglight bezels, while the rear ends gets a restyled bumper and a darker tint to the tail-light lens.
New 18-inch wheels are featured on the variant shown here (international trim grades differ to the local line-up), and new black side sills are joined by two new colour options: White Pearl and Quick Silver.
The design of the interior space remains unchanged, although new trim colours and chrome highlights have been added.
Mitsubishi says the 2013 ASX benefits from a revised rear suspension package, along with upgrades to the SUV's automatic Continuously Variable Transmission.
The ASX's engine line-up remains unchanged, with a 2.0 litre four-cylinder paired with a five-speed manual or the updated CVT, while the 1.8 litre diesel is matched with a six-speed manual.
The small SUV will be joined by an all-new Outlander in December this year.
Speaking with TMR today, Mitsubishi Australia's Caitlin Beale confirmed that the updated ASX will hit local showrooms in August this year.
Specifications and pricing will be confirmed closer to launch.
