Mitsubishi Colt successor

Mitsubishi confirms it will be producing a five-door replacement for the Colt, with a focus on space and efficiency

Mitusbishi has confirmed it will replace the Colt supermini next year with an all-new five-door car built in Thailand. 
The newcomer – currently sold as the Mirage in Asia – promises best-in-class sub-99g/km emissions and fuel economy of more than 70mpg. That’s down to 1.0 and 1.2-litre three-cylinder engines fitted with stop-start and a low kerbweight, too.
Promising to be the lightest car in its class, Mitsubishi insiders claim it betters the 929kg kerb weight of the Volkswagen up!. Despite that the new small car won’t compromise packaging, as engineers say it will offer more legroom than the five-door Colt it replaces. 
Mitsubishi’s global small car will be revealed later this year, before arriving in UK showrooms next March.
