The city streets in Melbourne are abuzz. Well- dressed ladies and dapper looking gents huddle for cover as the clouds roll in and the drizzle picks up. Before I get a chance to fumble for the wipers they automatically come on and are timed to perfection. I’m getting around this Fashion Week in Mitsubishi’s ASX and surprised at the ease of driving an SUV. City traffic has me running late for a fitting, knowing exactly where I need to go I decide to test out the sat nav while stopped at the lights. It’s touch screen and doesn’t take long to enter the address. Before I know I’m redirected a shorter route which ends up being quicker and gets me in on time. I’m meeting Arthur Gallan’s mother who is making alterations to a Zimmermann catsuit I plan on wearing to a runway show later in the week. I can see her showroom from the glass skyroof in the car, I just need to park and it’s a tight squeeze. Click into reverse and the camera guides me into the tough spot with sensors alerting when close to the car that encroached my space. As quick as that, I’m parked, locked and mirrors are folded in. The heavens have opened up and a storm has struck whilst I was in my fitting, jogging back to the car dodging the rain the keyless entry is perfect as I throw my shopping into the roomy backseat and start up the car. Seat warmers and climate control kick in and Bluetooth automatically picks up my phone and starts a playlist. Mitsubishi, good luck getting this car back from me! Driving the ASX has evoked a desire for the car, the features, the style and the fuel efficiency. This car has the small car feel packed into an SUV perfect for city driving. Mitsubishi is renowned for reliability and quality giving you a whole lot of car for your money and the ASX definitely exceeds expectations. Check out the Mitsubishi ASX for yourself here. Love that car.
