Summary

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

The Colt Ralliart is effectively the replacement for the Colt CZT and was introduced when the standard Colt range was facelifted. Like the CZT, power comes from a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with roughly 150bhp, giving it a 0-62mph time of 7.4 seconds. It's more aggressively styled and overtly hot hatch in appearance compared to the car it replaces while the involvement of Ralliart - Mitsubishi's motor sport arm - means it also drives better with sports suspension and a stiffer chassis.

It's great on country lanes, but for longer trips the lack of refinement can make it tiring. However, a low price tag means it's great value both new and used. If you're after a sporty and fun hatchback, the Colt could be just what you're looking for.

What owners say...

 It is big enough as a second car, I use it every day for work and the boot is just big enough to carry my work stuff. Drop the seats and it will carry almost anything.

 Good visibility. A doddle to drive. Nice supportive seats.

 The seats are really comfy and give great back support. It has huge space for a micro car. It's a cheap thrill.
