Mitsubishi 2018-2019 ACX specifications

The proposed specifications are fully compliant with the most stringent requirements to the SUV, especially in the domestic environment. Note that we have cars available with 3 power units.

  • The first of these, the petrol 1.6 liters. (117 hp), is aggregated with 5-speed manual transmission. Up to 100 km / h the engine will drive SUV 11.4 sec., Allowing a maximum speed of 183 km / h. According to the manufacturer this engine consumes when driving in komborezhime about 5 liters and not more than 7.8 liters. in the city. Car owners argue that the actual consumption of 6.5-7.5 liters while driving on the highway, and about 10-11 liters in the city.
  • 1.8 liter. gasoline engine (140 hp), working with automatic transmission – the CVT variator, transmits the time to the front wheels, providing a boost to the first 100 km / h in 13.1 seconds, top speed – no more than 186 km / h. Claimed fuel consumption is 6.4 liters. outside the city, 9.8 liters. in the city. Practice shows that the real rate is much higher: 7.5-8.5 l. Mixed mode, and 11-14 liters. in urban environments.
  • The most powerful in the lineup is the 2.0 liter. engine (150 hp) coupled with automatic transmission – CVT the CVT, a transmission time of the Plug-wheel drive transmission 4WD. This transmission can operate in three modes: automatic all wheel drive (2WD), continuous distribution is steep. torque to both axles (4WD), but also in the Lock – triggering accelerated mode, the electromagnetic clutch. Such motor (with active all-wheel drive), will drive crossover to the first 100 km / h in 11.9 seconds, top speed -. 188 km / h. As is the case with a less powerful power units, rate voiced manufacturer does not coincide with the actual as when driving on the road (ie 6.8 liter against 8-9 liters) and in (10.5 L – 12-13. l.).

Ahead settled traditional McPherson strut behind the multi-use architecture. Already in the basic version uses disc brakes and electric power steering, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist override system. The most expensive version in addition will receive ASTC (system of exchange rate stability), traction control and Hill StartAssist.

It is no secret that the first production model Mitsubishi 2018-2019 SUVs suffered from several inadequate response on the crossover control when cornering. For example, even at low speeds the rear axle could substantially bring, and the suspension became less responsive to commands. The current version of the SUV is completely spared from these shortcomings, first of all, through the installation of an upgraded suspension, as well as the presence of more rigid rear shock absorbers.

In addition, we have improved performance of the electric power steering and stabilization systems. Through the use of various innovations cars it has become much safer, despite the fact that the suspension has become much more rigid – Salon shakes even during movement on the asphalt surface, and even medium-sized potholes appear very sensitive interior.

The changes affected the suspension had a positive effect on the handling – Mitsubishi 2018-2019 ASX is obedient and stable even in difficult situations. However, reluctant to disperse the SUV to considerable speeds, no – Chassis turned excessively loud and energy-consuming.
