Mitsubishi ASX Facelift Revealed ahead of Paris

Ahead of the model’s European market debut at the Paris Motor Show 2012, Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi unveiled the 2013 ASX crossover, the facelifted version of crossover which has already gone on sale in North America and Japan.

The European ASX was first shown more than two years ago, at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. From summer 2012, production of the Outlander Sport (the US-market name for the same car) has begun in Normal, Illinois.

Looking at the single photo released by Mitsubishi Europe, we’d say the US and European versions are the same.

The facelift gives the ASX a new grille design and restyled bumper. The European engine lineup includes a 1.6-liter petrol and a 1.8-liter diesel, thus differing to the US and Asian lineup. It’s not yet clear what sort of performance or efficiency enhancements are going to be made.

However, for the US version, Mitsubishi chose to slightly improve efficiency while improving ride comfort and re-tuning the CVT.
