PRLog - Jan. 15, 2012 - CLOVELLY PARK, Australia -- With numerous style, safety and convenience upgrades, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited’s (MMAL) ASX two-wheel drive Platinum Edition is packed with extra features at no extra cost, making the already popular city-sized SUV even more appealing.
The interior of the ASX Platinum has been upgraded to include leather seat trim, heated front seats and powered driver’s seat with slide, recline and height adjustment functions. Convenience has been increased through the inclusion of steering wheel mounted audio and Bluetooth 2.0 controls.
The addition of a reversing camera and reversing sensors in the Platinum ASX boosts driver visibility and awareness. The camera monitor appears in the electro-chromatic rear-view mirror automatically when reverse gear is engaged to give the driver a view of the vehicle’s reversing path.
The exterior of the ASX Platinum has been updated through the addition of chrome muffler tip, front fog lamps and a special Platinum badge on the tailgate.
MMAL vice-president of Customer and Brand Management, Paul Unerkov, welcomed the ASX Platinum to the Mitsubishi range saying he expects the feature-packed edition to be popular at Mitsubishi dealerships across Australia.
“The ASX two-wheel drive is already a well-appointed vehicle and these additional features highlight the superior value of the Platinum variant,” Unerkov said.
