Test-driving the Mitsubishi Colt CZC

There's now a good number of cars vying for the attention of two-seater drivers of today.

Some, like the Mazda MX-5, are quite expensive, but there are others that run out much cheaper.

Among these is the Mitsubishi Colt CZC (pictured), a curious car based on a diminutive city runabout which, in some respects, does it no favours.

With the top in place, I would suggest the styling is almost awkward. There are heavy front pillars and small windows ahead of the doors, typical of the layout of many MPVs, while at the rear there are thick side pillars.

All this combines to make visibility quite difficult at offset junctions, where the car is on an angle and there's no straightforward view through the side glass.

Boot space is very much at a premium on this car, governed as much by its small size as by the need to stow the folded roof. But, roof up, there is enough stowage for two people on a weekend away.

There are supposedly four seats in the Mitsubishi, unlike rivals such as the Vauxhall Tigra or Daihatsu Copen, but these seats are very small.

This Is Basingstoke
