Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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
