A Trip To Penang With The ASX

I recently had the chance to try out the new Crossover Mitsubishi known as the ASX (Active X-over), it#8217;s a new genre of car is becoming very popular. It has the of an SUV but the driving characteristics of a sedan.

quite a fierce looking car and well specced (Kenwood unit, front #038; proximity sensors, reverse paddle shift and much You can find the details/specs and features the Mitsubishi Malaysia site #8211; Mitsubishi ASX .

In some this car would be known as the earlier models of which a lot of similarities with my car #8211; the Now all we need is them to come out a 4B11T RalliArt Turbo There are some similarities the two as you can see here, coincidentally it was also timing as my car was due for a service and some on various bits so I dropped it off at the while I had the ASX.

With such a spacious and car at my disposal I decided I should up a bunch of my buddies on a Friday and head off to Penang for the weekend! In 5 of us went along in the ASX (myself, Horng, Yuki and Carol). We fit 5 in the car with our bags in the back, though the boot isn#8217;t it fit everything with ease.

was also plenty of power to us cruising at a decent speed on the I did find it a little weird at as I#8217;ve never driven a CVT Variable Transmission) transmission car for distances before #8211; for with a manual car, or a auto gearbox it#8217;s to see the RPM staying at the same spot but the steadily climbing. It certainly for a pleasant and very fuel drive though.

The first location the ASX delivered us to was Ipoh for some Lou Wong Chicken Noodles! Parking the car is with the front and back elevated seating position and camera #8211; even in packed areas.

I managed to Penang bridge when the fuel sign came on, I over the bridge and headed to the petrol station I could (which was pretty near Usage for some city + highway drive was around for a full tank (approx 55 We got to Penang in perfect time for supper at Green House Mee.

We were up early the next and off we went, with a full of petrol and the comfort of the ASX we had no qualms spending the entire day driving and round Penang island. I that Saturday we spent 16 hours on the go with a few rest here and there and around 7

Of course it is necessary to visit the Selamat Char Kway when in Penang, so we did that! have to say I think I#8217;ll be it from now on after tasting of the other delicious versions the island at less than the price..yah it#8217;s still not as good as it was#8230;but sorry RM9 for a of noodles aint floating my any more.

On Sunday we took a more easy on the eating after almost entering a coma on Saturday evening at New saw a bit more of the island and went a bit out to Balik Pulau for a drive the hills. The ASX is easy to drive front wheel drive also makes it lighter, complex and more fuel #8211; it#8217;s a bit of a waste a car 4WD if it#8217;s never going to go It had enough power to handle the the handling is a little soft for my #8211; but then I#8217;m to low sports suspension set ups, give great handling but are useless in practical situations pot-holes, speed-bumps etc).

The drive was truly worth it the Balik Pulau Asam is the best I#8217;ve EVER had by

After that we headed all the way up to the top of the the ASX had no problems with giving us on the way up #8211; we got to enjoy a glorious of all the reclaimed land from the

Mitsubishi ASX

Here#8217;s a video of us heading down the hill in the ASX:

how we managed to drive 300km inside Penang! That#8217;s a feat for such a small and the ASX was still showing more half a tank of fuel I did pump an extra RM50 to get but for a car this size with 5 heavy people (remember 7 a day#8230;) it did very well.

We did it quite hard to make we got to Ipoh in time for Menglembu Chicken, and I#8217;d still it#8217;d give between on average per tank. It was an absolutely weekend made possible by the and space in the Mitsubishi ASX.

If you#8217;re looking for a handsome, to drive, comfortable car with full efficiency in the RM140,000 range #8211; I suggest you go and drive the ASX ASAP!
