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

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

Plug-in version priced well

Cons
AWD unavailable

Pros
Magnificent fuel economy
Spacious, comfortable seats
Generous cargo capacity
Upscale cabin

Cons
Less athletic than rivals
Not available with AWD
High base price

The most significant change for the 2018 Niro is the addition of lane keeping assist, replacing the previous lane departure warning system. It's included in the Advanced Technology package available on LX and EX trims, and it's standard on the top Touring trim.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy from the base trim model
One of the more affordable hybrids in the segment
Batteries are hidden under the rear seat and don't affect cargo space

CONS
Feature-laden Touring trim sacrifices fuel efficiency
Less cargo space than most rivals
Feels lazy when driving in the default Eco mode
All-wheel drive isn't offered despite crossover styling
