A view of the new ASX's interior is yet to be released, but Mitsubishi's main selling point is a redesigned infotainment system.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will globally unveil the 2020 model year ASXcompact SUV (RVR or Outlander Sport in some markets) at the 89 Geneva International Motor Show to be held March 5-17.

As with with the new Triton bakkie, the front end gets a bold makeover, sporting its own iteration of Mitsubishi's "Dynamic Shield" family face, complete with triangular headlights, wide "cheek bones" and boomerang-shaped chrome accents flanking the lower air intake. 2020 models get the RISE impact safety body and Forward Collision Mitigation braking system.

The bumper embraces the central protective shape from both sides and the squared horizontal and vertical line treatment of the grille and the skid plate under the bumper expresses strength and toughness.

Mechanicals remain unchanged, with power coming from a 2-litre normally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, linked to either a five-speed manual or six-speed CVT continuously variable gearbox with six-speed "Sports" mode.

Gone is the not-so-hot nose of yore, and in its place is a sleeker, sharper front end that relies on the newer design language seen on the Eclipse Cross and Outlander. Along with the body changes, it also comes in three new colours called Red Diamond, Sunshine Orange, Oak Brown.

The size of the display has been increased from seven to eight inches. At 8 inches, it's an inch larger than the old model. The system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and apparently allows you watch videos stored on USB (when the vehicle is stopped).
