The New Mitsubishi Colt

A key part of Mitsubishi’s rejuvenated model line-up, the all-new fifth-generation Colt arrives in UK showrooms on 1st September 2004. Offering sharp styling, outstanding versatility and engaging driving dynamics, new Colt is set to bring something new and fresh into the ultra-competitive supermini market. With prices starting at £8,999, Mitsubishi Motors UK is confident that sales of New Colt will reach 3,000 in 2004, rising to 15,000 in 2005 when it is joined by its 3-door sister model.

"2004 is a very exciting year for us. Following on from Outlander and Grandis, Colt will be the third all-new Mitsubishi model to be launched this year and will truly cement in people’s minds the new spirit of the brand and the new face of Mitsubishi," states Jim Tyrrell, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors UK.

Entering the most competitive of all the car segments in the UK, New Colt will prove a surprise package. Not only is Colt fun to drive, it also excels in its combination of interior flexibility and roominess. Sitting on an all-new front-wheel drive platform, Colt is 3870mm long, 1550mm high and 1695mm wide creating a wide and tall profile, with a long 2500mm wheelbase. Generous 1460mm front and 1445mm rear tracks maximise interior accommodation and offer class-leading cabin space.

As well as having the best total legroom in the segment, Colt’s versatility comes from a novel rear-seating arrangement with 40/60 split rear seats which can be individually reclined, folded or removed altogether, creating 645litres of load space. The backrests of the front passenger seat can also be folded forwarded to accommodate longer items resulting in a small car that can suit many purposes.
