What's the used Mitsubishi Colt hatchback like?

The Mitsubishi Colt isn't the sort of car you buy for thrills - it never has been. Instead, it's one of those cars that performs competently in every area rather than really shining in any one. Still, that's no bad thing.

Its biggest strength is its space. Four adults can sit in absolute comfort, and the amount of head- and legroom they get belies the car's small size. The dash is attractively designed and easy to use, too, and the materials it's made from are far more appealing than owners of older Mitsubishis will be used to.

The most notable thing about how the car drives is that it's very easy to drive. It grips well enough, even though the body leans in corners and the steering is dull. The ride is supple enough, too, even though bigger bumps and cracks can cause a bit too much suspension noise.
