The 2023 Mitsubishi ASX premieres in Europe as a compact crossover offering ICE, hybrid, and PHEV variants. Sales begin in March 2023.

The ASX wears heavily sculpted exterior styling. In front, the vehicle's grille has bracket-shaped trim, and the headlights have a complicated shape with hook-shaped running lights below the main lamps. The crossover comes in six colors, and upper-level trims are available with a black roof.

Depending on the trim level, the ASX's cabin can look very different. The entry-level model gets an analog instrument cluster with a 4.2-inch screen between the gauges. There's also a 7.0-inch digital instrument display or a 10.25-inch version for the range-topping model.

The standard infotainment screen measures 7.0 inches and has a landscape layout. As an upgrade, there's a 9.3-inch, portrait layout display that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and  Android Auto.

The ASX rides on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance CMF-B platform. Five powertrains are available. The table below lists the specs for each of them:
