Mitsubishi is updating its presence in the compact segment with the introduction of a refreshed version of the ASX. The model is on the market for a long time, and now has the chance to appeal to more customers with the 2020 version.

The 2020 Mitsubishi ASX adopts the chunkier design language of the rest of the range, while the new 2.0-litre engine means there is better performance and increased refinement compared to the outgoing version. There are also significant interior changes and the addition of extra safety features.

The revisions are also certain to add to its popularity with UK drivers – the ASX being Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s third best-selling passenger car with 22.6 per cent of its overall car sales during the past nine years.
