Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone

The Mitsubishi ASX has a decent infotainment system and comes with a long list of standard kit, but it feels too dated in important areas to recommend ahead of newer alternatives.

Pros
Good infotainment system
Proper all-wheel-drive system
Decent levels of kit

Cons
Poor rear space
Noisy at speed
Unsettled over bumps

The Exceed variant is the best 2020 Mitsubishi ASX money can buy, but is a fourth refresh enough to hide its age?

Pros
The facelift has given it a sharper appearance
Value for money
Great stereo
Good warranty/service offer at the moment

Cons
Still a 10-year-old car underneath
Interior is bland
Fake vents everywhere
Uninspiring drive

The 2020 Mitsubishi ASX Exceed comes with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that returns some pep to the range that was lost when the low-selling 2.2-litre turbodiesel was discontinued in 2018..Australia’s top-selling small SUV, the Mitsubishi ASX is popular for its spacious interior, comfortable ride and, most of all, good value in terms of pricing and features.

PROS
Punchier 2.4-litre engine,
spacious interior,
standard features

CONS
Cabin noise,
handling,
dated design
