When we reviewed the Mitsubishi ASX back in 2014, it arrived almost exactly as large swathes of the UK became submerged during the worst flooding the country had seen in decades.

The Mitsubishi ASX crossover has received something of an update for the 2017 model year, with a new front end design, improved seats, revised model designations and a new colour.
We Brits like a good pick-up. Although initially derided as the proverbial sow’s ear, attempts by ‘ute manufacturers to drag them towards some semblance of modern-day convenience (perhaps kick-started by Mitsubishi and their Animal tie-in) did actually go on to prove one thing: they are bloody useful things. We tested the new Series 5 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian to see just how useful.
A few years ago, the national press and – it seemed – the national psyche, were preoccupied by an excess of Daily Mail-style hand-wringing about 4x4s being planet-killers and gas-guzzlers.
