Mitsubishi unveiled the new generation Colt at the Paris Auto Show. Depending upon the market, the next generation Colt (except Clear Tec variants) will be launched in Europe in October / November 2008.
The new 2009 Mitsubishi Colt will be available with a choice of three petrol engines: a 1.1 with 75 PS and 100 Nm of torque, a 1.3 liter with 95 PS and 125 Nm and a 1.5 liter with 109 PS and 145 Nm of torque. For the transmission the 2009 Mitsubishi Colt offers a choice between the 5-speed manual and the AllShift automated manual gearbox.
The new Colt series also reflects Mitsubishi Motors’ strong commitment to the environment. The low-CO2 Colt Clear Tec model is powered by a 1.1- or 1.3-liter engine which incorporates the company’s AS&G (auto stop-&-go) idling stop system. In addition, the 1.3-liter Colt Clear Tec FFV caters to growing demand for flexible-fuel vehicles.
