    Mitsubishi Colt coming to US in 2010

    Source

    The current Colt is a B-segment car and will be competing with the Fit, Yaris, Fiesta and Mazda2. The biggest engine is currently the 1.5 four that makes about 104hp, but will probably be punched up some for the US market. If I'm not mistaken, isn't this the first time the US has gotten an actual Colt, rather than a Lancer badged as a Colt?

    I think I phrased that wrong. I mean we did get a car badged as a Colt, but it was actually a Lancer. Then we did get the Colt, but it was badged as the Mirage. I think this is the first Colt we're getting that's actually called Colt.

    No, I got you clearly. Just wanted to know if that car was a Colt overseas. :wink:

    Never mind, found out it was a Lancer in Oz, and a Mirage in Japan. :P

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, they put the Volvo grille on it! Will last year's fenders, bumper, and grille fit on?

    Chop top, weld in the rear doors, and a couple big boxes of Ralliart Version-R parts, and we could have some fun.

    Hopefully the RALLI - ART model will be included in the selections......

    Sweet. Mazda just unveiled the Mazda 2 (Demio) at the LA Auto Show today. Looks like a fun little car.

    So, how similar are the Euro and JDM Colts under the skin?

    does anyone else see Chevy Aveo in that car. I used to be a rabid Mitsu fan, owned a pair of Lancers, one heavily outfitted with RalliArt toys but I just cant seem to get my head around the new corporate design theme or the fact that they are good cars, they just are not exciting. good or bad, I want my cars to invoke passion and emotion. To me the new Mitsu's lack the ooh la la of the older ones.
