After being presented in June, the new generation of the Mitsubishi Colt is preparing to arrive in Italy thanks to the Group Koelliker, official importer of the Japanese brand. It will arrive in dealerships during the month of December.
The new model is based on the CMF-B platform and, as we saw at the time of the presentation, it is closely related to the Renault Clio. It is, in fact, the model of the French manufacturer with some small aesthetic changes. This is an operation similar to that conducted on the new ASX which is essentially the Renault Captur.
The design, therefore, does not differ from that of the Renault Clio (restyling model). Aesthetic customization is really minimal. For example, at the front, in addition to the different logo, we find some chrome elements on the grille. The interiors, obviously, also follow those of the French model with minimal differences. Depending on the trim levels, the infotainment system can be have a 7 or 9.3 inch touch screen.
As regards engines, the new Mitsubishi Colt will be also offered with a Full Hybrid powertrain. The basic engine is a three-cylinder petrol engine with 1 liter displacement, connected to a five-speed manual gearbox that develops 65 HP of power and 95 Nm of torque. The manufacturer declares emissions equal to 118-121 g/km of CO2 (WLTP), with a fuel consumption of 5.2-5.4 litres/100 km.
Then we have the unit MPI-T 1 liter three-cylinder turbo, available with 6-speed manual transmission. Engine capable of delivering 90 HP of power and 160 Nm of torque. Consumption equal to 5.1-5.5 litres/100 km and 116-124 g/km of CO2 emissions (WLTP). Finally, for the new Mitsubishi Colt it will be a 145 HP Full Hybrid powertrain combined with an advanced multi-mode automatic transmission is also available. CO2 emissions are 94 -102 g/km. The brand declares a fuel consumption of 4.2-4.5 litres/100 km.
