With the introduction of the Colt Mitsubishi have cleverly blended all the attributes you could be looking for in a small car into one contemporary styled package.
Everything was as you would expect - nothing worried us. The choice of materials of was good and in keeping with the price and class of the car. We particularly liked the quality of the leather faced seats.
Value For Money

With the introduction of the Colt Mitsubishi have cleverly blended all the attributes you could be looking for in a small car into one contemporary styled package. The Colt is fun to drive, can carry four adults (possibly five) with ease, has a high seating position, can be converted into a load-swallowing domestic mini van should the need arise and comes highly recommended.16 March 2005
