Mitsubishi Colt CZC (2006 – 2011) Review

Mitsubishi Colt CZC (2006 – 2011) At A Glance


+Folding hardtop, four seats and decent boot space even with the roof stowed, well equipped, cheap CZC1 from November 2007.

-Looks dumpy with the roof up, lacks structural rigidity when you lower the roof, rear seats are very tight for adults.

On average it achieves 94% of the official MPG figure

The concept car looked great at motor shows. But that was before they had to engineer a hard top and a boot it would fold into. So it shares the sort of cab-forward big rump look of the 307CC and from the side with the top up looks distinctly dumpy.

But unclip the roof locks, pull the button on the door handle, and it transforms itself from a plumpkin into a cute little cabrio. It still isn't ‘drop-head gorgeous', but, like Page 3 of The Sun, it looks a lot better topless.

Is a high mileage 2008 Mitsubishi Colt CZC a smart buy?

"Is 2008 Mitsubishi Colt Cabriolet that has done 117,000 miles okay to buy? It's a cheap stopgap car for 6 months."
I don't know the rest of it. But if it's under £1,000, the roof opens and the chain-cam engine runs with no rattles, could be a buy you can make something on by re-selling in the summer.

Deem topping

"I am thinking of purchasing one of the last CZC3s available in the country, since Mitsubishi stopped making them about 3 months ago. Current price on Mitsubishi website is £10,999. Do you consider this to be a bad idea? "
Go to SpecSavers. Get a fresh pair of glasses. Then take another look at it, especially from the rear 3/4.
