Decent performance, buzzy turbocharged engine
Artificial steering feel, poor interior materials, doesn't feel special to drive
The high-performance version of the Colt appears to tick all the right boxes if you're after a small hot hatch. It has sporty looks, a turbocharged engine and affordable prices. The little 1.5-litre unit has 147bhp and delivers plenty of pace, but the CZT is let down by artificial steering and lacks driver involvement as a result. Like the standard Colt, it's practical while economy is good given the performance.
But overall it lacks the fun factor found in cars like the Fiesta ST and Skoda Fabia vRS, both of which can be snapped up for similar money.
