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.
