10 MITSUBISHI ASX

THEREíS STILL APPEAL IN THIS NOT-SO-SILENT SALES ASSASSIN

TRENT GIUNCO


THE NUMBERS are impossible to ignore. Launched in Australia when Kevin Rudd was our PM the first time around, the ASXís popularity knows no limits. A decade in, its gap ahead of the second-placed Mazda CX-3 is wider than ever. The Lancer-based crossover has increased sales when most of the rest are falling.

Such success needs to be acknowledged, not least because nobody - including us - has given the ASX much slack. We cannot recall any other vehicle that has become more popular after so many years with so little change. Thatís a glowing testimony to the fundamental strength of the concept right there. Respect.
