My question is in reference to these three SUVs, Mitsubishi ASX, Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai ix35. I do not know the pros and cons, however, in terms of price, comparing the dealer where I asked, the cheapest of the three is the IX35 with a difference less Qashqai euros in 3000, and 4000, with respect to the ASX. I want to know if you?ve tried these three models, differences in the 4 ? 4 system, interior comfort, finished ?

After trying all three models, we are able to complete and comment on the valuable information that until now had been offering Naxop forum.
The Nissan the most familiar, perhaps it is more like a passenger car in daily use
In your first contact, we spoke Naxop the strengths of the Mitsubishi ASX: aesthetics, interior plastics settings, direct and precise steering, stability, recovery and equipment. Confirmed point by point Naxop these assessments, with some nuances: the steering is precise and transmits information, but is somewhat slow (especially compared to a Nissan Qashqai) is not a problem, let alone, unless you?re going to throw you all day curve and curve is going. And if so, probably half the thing could be arranged with a sportier riding wheel that wearing our test ASX, the only rim profile 17 and 60.
As a major negative points, indicated Naxop too big steering wheel rim, engine noise when accelerating and leather upper finishing compulsory Kaiteki. To me, the wheel has not seemed great, and I think the engine is great for smoothness, feel and response. True that the developments are rather short, but in noise refinement falls short of Nissan?s dCi, which is saying a lot, and at high speed sounds somewhat less than the Hyundai engine. As for the leather, it is true, for I do not like, and would prefer to choose a non-leather finish Kaiteki without anything else ?
In the Mitsubishi ASX 4 ? 4 (all versions offer 4 ? 2) wheel drive offers three modes of operation
On the AWD, reproduce what we had in the forum. In all a very similar system with a multi-plate clutch which distributes torque between the axles, the most used in the SUV. In the Mitsubishi ASX 4 ? 4 (all versions offer 4 ? 2) wheel drive offers three modes of operation. In 2WD mode only the front wheels are driven. In 4WD differential sends 98 percent of engine power to the front wheels, and distributes torque to the rear if the front wheels lose grip. In 4WD Lock not get to lock the differential, but the rear wheels can receive up to one and a half more strongly than in 4WD mode.
The Qashqai works basically the same, a knob, as in the ASX, can choose between 2WD, Auto and Lock, being the positions equivalent to those of Mitsubishi, while the lock mode distributes power between the axles in a ratio 50 / 50, and stops working (Auto passes) if above 40 km / h.
The Hyundai ix35, the drive system is also automatic. Under normal conditions virtually 100 transmits 100 the force to the front wheels and modify the allocation depending on adhesion to a maximum of 50/50 on each axis. Using a button you can lock the differential pair overcome difficult areas, function is deactivated when going from 35 km / h. It is the only hill descent control.
The Hyundai, the drive system is also automatic. It is the only hill descent control.
On the following contributions Naxop you have in the forum, I?ll just mention that, in my view-and I repeat, after further testing and the possibility of losing a car and ride on rivals ? deserve qualification. The rest, if I say nothing, is because, simply, the has ?clavao.?
With a car as it rolled, the Mitsubishi ASX has not seemed so lazy as low-end Naxop says. Habitability, as in all these cars, good for four people, bad for five. And it is he who has the best rear seats (access is not very good because the door open a little), nor the best boot (such as the Qashqai is about 400 liters, but with puncture kit instead of spare wheel by nearly 600 of the Hyundai, which has a wheel on top of the real).
Otherwise, again, Naxop analysis and impressions after his last trip are perfectly valid to get an idea of ??how the Mitsubishi ASX. In summary: excellent engine response and smooth, very low intakes (as confirmed, it is easy to get between 6 and 6.5 l/100 km), very handy (it is the most compact of the three) ? Of course, the Mitsubishi ASX is the most expensive if we compare versions roughly equivalent (in the Qashqai Visia, Motion in the Mitsubishi and Hyundai Classic), but makes up the difference with the most equipment (up to xenon headlights are standard).
At the time I said that the usage requirements that were saying, (car compact, manageable city, only two people, etc) I would bet on the Mitsubishi ASX, but that would confuse you if you were to choose with your eyes closed. I now confirm my comment, and add the following: the Mitsubishi is the sportiest of the lot, by behavior, appearance and feel of the engine (sorry a more direct). The Nissan the most familiar, perhaps it is more like a passenger car in everyday use. And Hyundai is also pleasantly surprised by design and performance, offering, in whole, the model cutting bourgeois.
