The only engine is a 1.5-litre petrol that develops 107bhp. Its performance won't blow your mind, but the CZC is brisk enough and doesn't need constant gearchanges to mix it with the ebb and flow of traffic. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard across the range.
Mitsubishi Colt Coupe ride & handling
The CZC combines tidy handling with decent ride comfort, although this becomes a little unsettled over poor surfaces. The steering doesn't provide much genuine feedback, either, but it is reassuringly weighty. With the roof down, there's some shake through the windscreen frame and steering wheel over bigger bumps, but the body generally feels stiff.
Mitsubishi Colt Coupe refinement
The CZC keeps out wind and road noise better than most traditional soft-tops thanks to its hard roof, but the suspension can be heard clonking over bumps and there's a whistle down the side at motorway pace. With the roof stowed, the Colt's steeply raked windscreen directs most wind blast over the front-seat occupants.
