The updated 2020 Mitsubishi ASX has been revealed ahead of a public debut at the Geneva motor show in March.
Most of the changes to the ASX relate to the styling, the popular SUV will now feature the ‘Dynamic Shield’ design from the recently updated Triton ute. There’s a deeper hood thanks to the central protective shape on both sides and a squared horizontal and vertical line treatment of the grille and the skid plate under the bumper.
There are also turn signals and fog lamps positioned at the ends of the bumper as part of the distinctive LED lighting layout. Down back the LED rear combination lamps (except turn signals) stretch the full width of the car.
Red Diamond, Sunshine Orange and Oak Brown exterior paint options have been added to the existing palette.
Other updates include an improved Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) system with better connectivity and a larger display screen which grows from 7.0 to 8.0-inches.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included and videos on USB sticks can now also be played on the SDA screen.
The models at the peak of the trim level offerings also come equipped with ‘Tom Tom’ navigation with real-time traffic information accessed via an internet-connected smartphone.
Mitsubishi also has an app in the works which will utilise the speedometer, odometer, warning lamp and other vehicle information to deliver information on fuel remaining and provide navigation to the nearest fuel stations as well as provide guidance on optimum maintenance and inspection intervals.
The ASX will remain powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or CVT.
Autonomous emergency breaking will be included as part of the brand’s Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) system, however, exact trim levels and inclusions are yet to be confirmed.
The 2020 Mitsubishi ASX is scheduled to reach Australia around July/August, full specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the launch date. Stay tuned.
