The new Mitsubishi Colt is back in 2023, and it offers a familiar base: that of Clio. The first image was released and showed part of the front face. And official photos now of New Renault Clioartist K Design has managed to create an outline that shows us with great accuracy what the next Colt will look like.
Colt very close to Clio
To make a Colt out of a Clio, little effort would have been made visually. The grille is unique, with two chrome butts bearing the Mitsubishi logo. The logo with the three diamonds fits nicely in the space originally planned for the Renault diamond…it would cost more to fix the stamped bonus! Another detail that can make a difference: the light signature should be slightly different from that of this model. In addition to these details, you have before your eyes a new Colt. On the back, only the logo and badge should distinguish the two telescopes. And don’t even count the different alloy wheels: the Mitsubishi ASX Renault Captur twin was not entitled to this grace.
What kind of new Mitsubishi Colt?
On the other hand Mitsubishi will reject the names of the fines used within the brand. Colt should have a range that includes four trim levels: Invite, Business, Sharp and Style.
In terms of engines, Mitsubishi should not retain all the options available on the Clio. Starting with the Blue dCi and TCe GPL diesel engines, which are not related to what the brand normally offers. It is also possible that Colt ignores the small 3-cylinder atmospheric 65 hp (we wish) and starts with a turbocharged version of 90 hp. This engine will therefore be sold under the name 1.0 MPI-T, to match the nomenclature of the house.
This petrol offering will be supported by a 145 hp full hybrid engine, which will be available under the name 1.6 MPI HEV.
Compared to Clio, Colt would have limitations like a smaller dealer network, and the absence of the “Alpine Spirit”. It will repair with a 5-year warranty, and the most easily discounted price. The ASX is currently showing a trading discount of 2000 euros.
