Great fun to drive, good value for money, buzzy turbocharged engine, affordable running costs
Tiny boot, cramped rear seats, noisy at motorway speeds
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.
