Mitsubishi Colt CZC3 1.5

An affordable mini Coupe-Convertible with lots of character. It looks good with the roof down but less so with it up. Rear seats are made for children only but the luggage space is good when the roof is up. The Mitsubishi Colt CZC’s interior is funky, but well detailed and thought out. Power comes from a 1.5 litre engine which is average in its standard form but was potent in the now discontinued Turbo model. Standard equipment, as with all Mitsubishis is excellent giving a feel of a primium vehicle to this cute little car.

    Is it true that Mitsubishi have stopped production on the Cabriolet Convertible cars?

  2. Editor says:

    Yes, I’m afraid a combination of the introduction of the new shape Mitsubishi Colt and the global recession saw the end of the Colt CZC at the end of 2009. Cars may have continued to sell into 2010 until dealer stocks ran out. There is no news yet of any future Mitsubishi convertible.

  3. Derek Nash says:

    Hmm. Funny car in some ways. Pig ugly with the roof up but not too bad when its down. Massive boot and not too bad when the roof is down. (As it’s only a two seater, unless you have two children under 5 y.o. or have legless hunchback midget friends, there’s always the back seat space for a lot of soft luggage.

    We bought a CZC3 as my wife fell in love with it on first sight in the dealers showrooms. (I paid, she drives, mostly.)

    Well planted on the road with a firm but comfortable ride. Acceleration is not that great for a 1500cc car but it gets there, eventually, and I have seen 120 mph on the speedometer, obviously not on English roads, and it was still very stable and a six hour drive was not too wearing even with the roof down, with the wind deflector up, most of the time.. (That works well.)

    All in all a pretty positive experience. Solid, all round car for two. Apparently unlimited road holding, just wish it had more power from the lazy lump of an engine. Oh. Pretty embarrassing to be seen in for a bloke. Absolutely no street credibility unless the sun is shining and the roof is down and even then, it’s looks are a bit iffy..
