Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 42 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Colt Ralliart is a good value buy, especially given its generous levels of standard equipment. It’s economical for a hot hatch too with an average of 41mpg achievable – although not if you drive it quickly. The one fly in the ointment for younger drivers could be an insurance group of 14 – although this is one group less than the previous CZT. Mitsubishi servicing isn’t as cheap as many mainstream makes but the firm does offer a service plan on new cars which gives you three years/30,000 miles of servicing for a one-off payment of £295.

The 1.5-litre turbocharged engine emits 161g/km of CO2, so it’s not too expensive to tax, while average economy is 41mpg. These are decent figures considering the performance the Ralliart offers.

Mitsubishi has a very good track record for reliability, illustrated by the small number of recalls its models have been subject to over the years. Problems are rare and tend to be small faults which can be easily dealt with by your dealer.
