The car should get a new platform and become more compact than the current version.

Japanese auto giant Mitsubishi is working on a new generation ASX crossover. The current version has been released for 10 years – during this time the model “experienced” minor changes. PSA took part in the development of the current version. For the new generation, the Japanese chose a completely new platform, which was developed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi group. Today, Renault Captur and Nissan Juke cars are assembled on this platform. The transition to the new platform at Mitsubishi is explained by the desire to create a more compact crossover ASX so that it does not become a competitor to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.

Most likely, the new version will have only front-wheel drive, like the Renault and Nissan models built on the same platform.

┬áThe all-wheel drive version may appear if the electric version of the Mitsubishi ASX appears – in this case, a separate electric motor can be connected to the rear axle.
