Lets face it: Mitsubishi Colt has never been a very successful model, especially on markets like Europe. And due to the lack of sales the company has been forced to shut down its plant in Europe and as a result lots of Mitsubishi models will be imported from other global factories.
The first affected model will be the supermini Colt which will be replaced by the newMitsubishi Mirage that was shown for the Asian market last year. Our spy photographers have caught a lightly camouflaged Mirage during testing in Europe and it seems that the European version will get some slightly changed details and probably a different set-up then its Asians cousins.
Despite being a very small model, Mitsubishi has promised that the new Mirage will offer interior space for five adults. Let’s hope they have tested that with five Europeans.
Under the hood there will be a range of petrol engines starting with a three-cylinder 1.0 liter engine with start/stop. An official debut is expected for 2013.
