|Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has announced the appointment of Malaysian songstress Yuna as ambassador for the latest Mitsubishi ASX Compact SUV campaign.|
The domestic songstress who’s currently based in Los Angeles, CA, U.S.A recently launched a new single ‘Crush’ featuring R&B hotshot Usher in her new album Chapters. Additionally, the singer is currently on tour in the States to promote her new album. Future tours are scheduled for Europe and Asia as well. Coming up, Yuna will sing the 2016 Olympics theme “The Fire”, alongside rock and roll legend Lenny Kravitz.
MMM chose Yuna to be the ASX model’s ambassador because the songstress has been a proud owner since 2012 and is deemed a perfect fit for the ASX campaign. Of course, the other attributes like her style, her stardom and contemporary status fit the bill as ASX ambassador like a glove. “I have been an ASX owner since 2012 and to work on a car and a brand I feel strongly about is a rewarding experience. The Mitsubishi ASX ticks the right box for me. The stylish Compact SUV is just the right size, comes with assured safety with 7-airbags and I simply love the panoramic glass roof!” Yuna remarked.
The Mitsubishi ASX is available in three variants: ASX 4WD, 2WD and 2WD GL. Standard equipment include leather seats, automatic air conditioning, colored Multi-Info Display, auto retractable side mirrors, new center console, piano black door switch panel, keyless entry with push-start, cruise control, paddle shifters and touch screen entertainment system (2WD and 4WD). The compact SUV comes with refreshed exterior features for 4WD and 2WD incorporating DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) and Shark Fin Antenna, as well as two-toned 17-inch wheels on the 4WD version.
Safety features on the ASX are feature packed, courtesy of the ABS and EBD, All Wheel Control 4WD System, Active Stability Control (ASC), Traction Control and Hill Start Assist (HSA). The 4WD version has 7 airbags to ring up a rather safe and secure compact SUV. The agile and easy handling ASX has a class leading turning radius of 5.3 meters.
The Mitsubishi ASX is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine with an output of 150 PS and 197 Nm of torque. The enhanced INVECS-III CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) with Sports Mode now allows better acceleration and fuel efficiency.
The ASX has a staring price of RM104,791.87 for ASX 2WD GL, with the ASX 2WD and 4Wd running at RM 112,571.39 and RM125,040.67 respectively. All prices do not include insurance and are attached to a 5-year warranty. Color options consist of Sporty Blue, Titanium Grey, Cool Silver and Solid White.
