The horsepower of the Kia Sportage III SUV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual is 18 hp bigger when compared to the Mitsubishi. Because the difference is small this should not affect the car performance considerably.
The Kia Sportage III SUV has 14 Nm more torque in comparison to the Mitsubishi ASX SUV 1.6 MIVEC 117HP manual. Even though the majority of people do not take into consideration the maximum torque when buying a car, it informs the best how a car is speeding up.

Number of gears
The Kia has only one additional
gear compared to the
Mitsubishi. Generally this
additional gear is a very
tall one thanks to which the previous
gears can be narrower in order to
give better performance in the
lower gears. One more gear also will result in smaller
fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
The Kia has 1 cc larger engine displacement compared to the Mitsubishi ASX SUV. Because the difference is not big, the Kia Sportage III should accelerate a bit dynamically, assuming that other paramerters are does not play a role.
The Kia Sportage III is 3 % longer in comparison to the Mitsubishi ASX. The length of the car is significant in respect of travelling comfort and room in the boot. The Kia Sportage III SUV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual preasumbly will be offering to it's passangers more space for legs. At the same time the Kia Sportage III SUV 1.6 GDI 135HP manual will be better driven but the Mitsubishi ASX SUV will be a slightly easier to park because of shorter length .
The higher a car is, the better is the comfort of getting in to it and greater capacity of loading massive amount of luggage to it. The difference between these two cars of 1 percent to the advantage of the Kia Sportage III is not big and should not be really noticeable.
