The ASX compact SUV is Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia’s first local assembled in Malaysia.

After clinching the Asian Auto Allianz Auto “Best Local Assembled SUV” award in 2014, the Mitsubishi ASX added two more titles to its collection of awards. Autocar Asean awarded the ASX with “Best Small/Midsize SUV” and Cars, Bikes & Trucks awarded the ASX with “Small/Midsize SUV (4×2) of the Year”, both publications choosing the ASX as a winner under their respective SUV categories.
MMM is represented by 59 showrooms (out of which 50 are 3S Centres) and 54 service outlets throughout Malaysia.
Since 2005, MMM has sold more than 90,000 units of vehicles in Malaysia. The ASX 2WD and 4WD compact SUV is locally assembled in Malaysia while the other Mitsubishi models are imported as CBU (Completely Built-Up) units from Thailand (compact hatchback Mirage, compact sedan Attrage, Pajero Sport SUV, Triton pick-ups) and Japan (Lancer).
