Mitsubishi to Unveil a More Coltish Colt, the CZC Convertible

AMSTERDAM — Mitsubishi Motors will use the Geneva Motor Show to unveil the latest member of its Colt subcompact family, the CZC convertible, produced in conjunction with Pininfarina.

Europeans have loved retractable hardtop convertibles for several years. Usually the category has been made up of small and nimble machines like the Peugeot 206CC, but larger versions have come along, such as the new Volkswagen Eos that was displayed at the Detroit auto show. The latest manufacturer to jump on this bandwagon is Mitsubishi.

The Colt CZC will be powered by a choice of normally aspirated or turbocharged 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engines. The turbo version's 150 hp is enough to propel the small 2+2 seater from zero to 62 mph in 8.4 seconds.

Sales of the Dutch-built Mitsubishi Colt are below expectations; when this model goes on sale in May, the company is clearly hoping to pique interest and spur sales.

What this means to you: Mitsubishi wants to improve its fortunes in Europe, and a sporty little number like this can't hurt.
