Used Mitsubishi Colt (2004 - 2013) Buying & Selling

The Mitsubishi Colt is the Japanese firm’s riposte to the likes of the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo. A facelift in late 2008 took the Colt from its original and slightly anonymous appearance to something altogether more racy, with a strong hint of Mitsubishi’s Evo X about the front grille and headlights.

Buying used

If you want something different to the normal hatchbacks then the Colt is a good choice. Avoid the 1.1-litre unless you only intend to drive in town - but all models are cheap to run and make good used buys. The 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines were dropped when the model was facelifted in October 2008. If you're after a revised model they'll be on a 58-plate or later.

The Colt may be less common than mainstream hatchbacks such as the Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo but it doesn't hold its value as well. The special edition models command a premium over the standard versions.
