Australians interested in buying a Mitsubishi ASX will need to wait up to two months to take delivery of the popular small SUV


Popularity for the Mitsubishi ASX small SUV is not slowing down despite the age of the model, with a spokesperson from Mitsubishi Australia telling Chasing Cars that there is a two month wait on a brand new ASX if you happen to walk into a dealership today with the intention to buy.

The brand said there was “minimal available stock in the dealer network” so it therefore encouraged customers to contact their local Mitsubishi dealership to understand further information. 

The Mitsubishi ASX performed strongly in the SUV sales charts in 2021, with 14,764 examples of the small SUV selling to Australian buyers, beating its 2020 figures of 14,056 cars sold.

The ASX was the second best-selling car in its segment and price range, falling only to the MG ZS. Mitsubishi beat the Mazda CX-30 (13,309) and Hyundai Kona (12,748) along with the Subaru XV (9342).
