Mitsubishi’s 2020 model year ASX makes its first public debut at Geneva motor show

Mitsubishi's facelifted Mitsubishi ASX compact SUV has received its global unveiling at the Geneva motor show, following an initial reveal last month.

The Mazda CX-3 rival features an overhauled front-end design to bring it into line with the Eclipse Cross SUV, described as the latest evolution of the firm’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ front fascia. 

LED lighting also features front and rear, with milder styling changes at the back including a new skid plate design. Three new colours are also added.

A view of the new ASX’s interior is yet to be released, but Mitsubishi’s main selling point is a redesigned infotainment system. Not only does it feature a larger screen but it also receives TomTom sat-nav with real-time traffic information, and it will eventually come with an app system that conveys information about the car to your smartphone. New safety features include forward collision braking, blind spot assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

The biggest mechanical change is the complete rethink of the ASX’s engine range. The old 2.2-litre diesel unit has been dropped, and for European markets the sole engine choice is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder non-turbo petrol engine. It’s mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a CVT transmission with a ‘sports mode’ that mimics six physical gears.

The Mitsubishi ASX packs some clever tech, but does that make it desirable?

Why even bother selling this in Europe? Unless they're cheap as dirt, but still, an old, na 2.0L petrol can't do great on emissions. Who in their right mind would buy this?

They will sell very few of theme with the 2.0.

If it had at least a hybrid, they would sell a lot more.

I remember a time in the 80s and 90s when Mitsubishi use to make exciting cars, nowadays they are more aimed at elderly people all they seem to do is boring suv after boring suv nothing exciting.
