The 2023 Mitsubishi ASX will be based on the CMF-B platform of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and will be manufactured at Renault’s plant in Valladolid. We advance all your engines.
Little by little, we are getting to know more data and information about the new generation of the Mitsubishi ASX, a vehicle that will fit into the category of small or urban SUV-type vehicles.
In past information, we already told you that the new generation of the Japanese SUV will be based on the joint common technical platform CMF-B of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. In this way, the outgoing model that will hit the market in 2023 will share many technical genes with the Renault Captur. On the other hand, we can also confirm that the vehicle of the Japanese brand will also be manufactured in the same production center as the Captur, that is, the Renault factory in Valladolid.
The world presentation of the new generation of the ASX will take place next September, although its marketing will not start until 2023 (in spring, initially). In the last hours, we have been able to officially know the mechanical range that this B – segment urban SUV will offer.
THE ENGINES OF THE MITSUBISHI ASX 2023
The access engine to the range of the new generation of the ASX will correspond to the 1.0 turbo petrol engine with three cylinders in line (1.0 MIP-T) with 91 CV of power associated with a six-speed manual gearbox and with a multipoint injection.
One step above will be another gasoline engine, specifically the 1.3 DI-T turbocharged engine with a direct injection system, and 4-cylinder in-line 140 hp maximum power. This engine can be combined with a six-speed manual transmission or with the seven-speed 7DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission (in the latter case, the announced performance is 158 hp).
As a great novelty in this model, the ASX 2023 will also offer a version with non-plug-in hybrid technology (HEV) with a maximum performance of 145 hp. In this technology, a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, two other electric motors, a 1.3 kWh capacity battery, and a clutchless multi-mode gearbox will take center stage.
The mechanical offer of the new SUV will be crowned by the plug-in hybrid version 1.6 PHEV WITH a maximum power of 160 CV, equipped with a 1.6-liter petrol engine combined with two electric motors and a 10.5 kWh capacity battery (with initial emissions of only 30-31 g/km of CO2 ).
