What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Colt has lots of equipment, excellent space and a good entry-level engine

Against Small boot, dull steering, little safety kit

Verdict It's competent rather than fun to drive, but it's surprisingly spacious

Go for… 1.1 Classic

Avoid… 1.5 CZT

Mitsubishi Colt Hatchback
  • 1. A used Colt won't be that cheap because it's still too new for values to have fallen far
  • 2. We recommend the basic 1.1 engine because it's quick enough to use anywhere and responsive at low revs
  • 3. There's plenty of head- and legroom for four adults
  • 4. Even entry-level Classic models come with a good spread of kit including alloys, electric front windows and a CD player
  • 5. The boot isn't particularly big, even by supermini standards
