Mitsubishi’s strong-selling ASX has been given a light update for the new model year, a year on from its last last major enhancement.

This week, the '2015.5' ASX picks up a handful of subtle styling tweaks inside and out, along with new entertainment tech and a lightly shuffled pricing.

New 18-inch alloy wheels borrowed from the larger Outlander now feature on all models, along with black wheel arch extensions and a chrome tailgate extender.

Inside, there’s now digital radio as standard with all models, and the updated Outlander's new steering wheel has also been adopted by the little ASX.

The revised line-up again kicks off at $24,990, although the 4WD 2.2 diesel LS and XLS models are now $500 cheaper at $31,490 and $35,990 respectively.

Features already standard with the ASX include 7 airbags, touch screen audio system, reverse camera, reverse parking sensors, climate control air conditioning and Bluetooth audio connectivity.

The range is otherwise unchanged, with power provided by either a 110kW/197Nm 2.0 litre petrol engine or a 110kW/360Nm 2.2 litre diesel.

A six-speed manual and CVT auto can be had with the entry LS 2WD petrol, while the LS 4WD and XLS 2WD/4WD petrol models get a CVT auto only.

The 2.2 diesel is also restricted to an auto, although that unit is a conventional six-speed auto instead of the CVT featured with the petrol models.

 

The Sales Race

The ASX continues to perform for Mitsubishi, notching up 950 registrations in May for a year-to-date total of 4626.

May's figures represent a 9.1 increase over the same period last year, but, year-to-date, the ASX is up a solid 40.3 percent.

Rival models include the larger ix35 (listed however as a small SUV) with 7620 YTD sales, and Nissan's popular Qashqai with 4345 sales.

Honda's HR-V and Mazda's CX-3, both new entrants, are close behind with 3891 and 3296 sales respectively. The Subaru XV is also performing well, with 3370 sales year-to-date.
