Mitsubishi ASX crossover to get a new face

The XM-MPV Crossover concept and Outlander PHEV will not be the only vehicles that Mitsubishi will be displaying at the 2016 Philippine International Motor Show. Also set to make its local debut is the refreshed ASX crossover which gets a new face.

First revealed at the 2015 Los Angeles Motor Show, the upcoming ASX now gets the brand's Dynamic Shield front fascia. Apart from that, the ASX also received subtle exterior tweaks like the new side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, wheel lip moldings and new 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior also gets minor tweaks like a new seat material, revamped three-spoke multi-function steering wheel and new dashboard trim pieces.

For the Philippine market, the 2.0-liter 4B11 inline-four is expected to carry over from the pre-facelift model, along with the continuosly variable transmission (CVT).

The updated ASX will be on display from September 14 – 18 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
