Motors: The Charge of Sir Lancer-Lot! New Reg: Mitsubishi


Byline: By EDWARD STEPHENS; By CHRIS RUSSON

THE new Colt range received more than a few admiring glances when it first went on show.

And it's the three door version of this car which is the newest from this marque to appear in UK showrooms. In fact its February arrival was well timed for the March new registration.

Prices start from around pounds 7,500 for the entry level 1.1-litre rising to pounds 10,250 for the 1.5-litre diesel Equippe and pounds 13,000 for the sporting flagship, the 147bhp Colt CZT.

The cars share the same wheelbase and track as the five-door models, a range which has been described as a cross between a conventional supermini and a small MPV.

By CHRIS RUSSON MITSUBISHI is about to mount an offensive on the popular car front and is bringing in a line-up of Lancers to lead the charge.

Packed with equipment and with prices almost in the bargain basement, the new Lancer is poised to deliver a knockout blow.

Air conditioning, alloy wheels, front fog lamps, CD player and remote control central locking are standard across the range, as are electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.

So is metallic paint, electric windows front and rear, front and side airbags, ABS and ISO-fix child seat anchor points.

But the most remarkable feature is that the Lancer range starts at pounds 9,999 for a 1.6-litre saloon.

That is more than pounds 3,000 cheaper than a similarly engined Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra or Toyota Corolla - and it comes with more equipment. …
