2005 Mitsubishi Colt.jpg

Mitsubishi Colt (Z21A/Z23A). 2002 to date (prod. n/a). 3- and 5-door sedan, 2-door hardtop convertible, 5-door wagon. F/F, 1124, 1332, 1468, 1499 cm³ petrol, 1493 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 1584 cm³ (I4 OHC). Olivier Boulay-penned Colt, on same platform as Smart Forfour (W454), created when DaimlerChrysler had grander plans for Mitsubishi, in which it then had a stake. Far better dynamically than Smart, and better value as a package when new. Colt name had not been used in Japan for decades. Range includes economy cars plus sporting model with 150 PS. Wagon called Colt Plus, though marketed more as a lifestyle vehicle. Taiwanese Colt Plus with Orion 1·6 engine. CZC hardtop convertible from 2006, developed with and assembled by Pininfarina in Torino. Facelifted in 2009 to resemble Mitsubishi Galant Fortis from the front. Production ended 2012 in all territories except Taiwan, which retained the Colt Plus; this model was facelifted in 2013, and a Colt Plus X Sports faux crossover added, with a different grille. Further facelift for Taiwanese Colt Plus in 2019.
