Mitsubishi Motors in the UK will be expanding the ASX range by introducing the ASX Black, its latest special edition model with a bespoke interior and enhanced exterior styling. Externally, the new Mitsubishi ASX Black features a dynamic appeal with the satin black styling kit which includes striking black 17-inch alloy wheels, spoiler, roof, grille, fog lamp bezels and mirrors.
Inside, the vehicle has a special edition black leather kit showcasing carbon fiber inserts. The new model is based on the present Mitsubishi ASX4 and will be launched on November 11, 2011.
