Recent Changes[edit | edit source]

  • MY 2009 sees the Colt receive its first mid-cycle facelift, now in keeping with the design language of the EVO X, as well as the launch of the Colt Ralliart at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.[1]
  • In May 2007, Mitsubishi UK released the Mitsubishi Colt CZT Black Hawk special edition.
  • In late November 2007, Mitsubishi unveiled the 2009 Colt Ralliart Version-R 163 HP. The hot hatch will only be available in the JDM and will be motivated by a revised Version-R 1.5-litre turbocharged engine tweaked to deliver a 9 HP increase, totaling to 163 HP. The car also includes a whole host of other changes including a spiffier gearknob and new 16-inch alloy wheels that shed 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs from the car's total weight.[2]

Criticisms[edit | edit source]

"Look, i've got to be honest and say that I don't really get this style of vehicle. But even allowing for this reservation, this Mitsu remains one of the least impressive examples of the genre I've had the misfortune to encounter. With steering so light you have no chance of predicting or catching the wild oversteer all too easily elicited from its wayward rear end, the Colt gets few kudos for its dynamic ability. But add to this the awful scuttle and body shake over rought surfaces, and a price tag on the worng side of $30K, and I just find myself asking, 'why?'. If you must go there, at least specify the Turbo model with its heroically brisk performance, sportier suspension, and standard ESP." Wheels Magazine (Colt CC)

CZ2[edit | edit source]

CZ3 Tarmac[edit | edit source]

This concept car, the CZ3 Tarmac is a third-generation concept car under the Colt platform. This lightweight car shared mechanicals with the Lancer Evolution VIII particularly the 300+hp engine and it features a 5 speed automatic with paddle shifts behind the steering wheel. The CZ3 also features some other cutting edge in-car entertainment technology and one of them were side mirror mounted digital cameras to record laps. Inside, there's a flat video screen with climate, audio and telematic units operated by a mouse. The CZ3 Tarmac can double as a convertible with its no-fold roof concept that can be removed. Otherwise, using a fabric roof can spoil the CZ3's sporty looks. The interior has a minimalist feel to simulate a jet-fighter cockpit or a racing car's interiorto target the "Generation Y".
