Which used Mitsubishi Space Star hatchback should I buy?
It's rare to plug the entry-level engine, but that's the case with the Space Star. The alternatives will cost you more and don't offer any great benefit for the extra cash. The 84bhp 1.3-litre base car is flexible enough around town, but it will struggle at higher speeds, so the 1.6 and 1.8 are better for motorways, as is the 1.9-litre diesel.
The good news is that all versions come well equipped, with even the lowly Classic trim getting central locking, alloys, electric front windows and door mirrors, a sunroof and CD player. Equippe, which is called GLX on early examples, adds air-con, and S models get powered rear windows. Mirage trim, which includes twin front airbags as standard, was introduced in 2001.
