New Colt CZC is the country’s only new, sub-£10,000 open-top
8 November 2007

They say the winter’s the best time to buy a convertible. It certainly is if you’re in the market for a new tin-topped coupe-convertible, thanks to a great new deal that Mitsubishi is offering on the Colt CZC.The firm has just negotiated a massive £3000 off the factory price of its Colt CZC. That means you can get a brand new unregistered model, complete with folding metal roof, for just £9999. That’s £4700 cheaper than a Peugeot 207CC, cheaper than a Daihatsu Copen – cheaper even than Smart’s Fortwo cabrio.Standard equipment on the Colt CZC includes air conditioning, antilock brakes, an MP3 CD player and a colour-keyed body kit. All of the entry-level models come with non-metallic Espresso black paint, but for an extra £400 you can upgrade the car to include alloy wheels, fog lights and metallic or pearlescent paint, and still make a 25 per cent saving on the former price.All Colts come with a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty and a roadside assistance package thrown in, and for £200 extra, you get your first three scheduled services thrown in for free.

This seems like a deal too good to be true. I just saw it on Pulling Power as well and decided to do a search to see if it was being advertisied anywhere else.

I don't know much about Mitsubishi, but the car looks great and at this price it's got to be worth a look.

Does anyone know how it drives?

On the basis that they are:

  1. A Mitsubishi, therefore fairly well built with bullett proof reliability.
  2. Better looking than most of it's direct rivals.
  3. It obviously floats your boat.
  4. The price is frankly a give away compared to even the Smart.

Does the way it drives actually matter? lets face it when all said and done, these cars were not built for handling prowess, more to look good in the shop window opposite, while sat at the lights.

Are you able to tell the difference between the handling of the Mitsubishi from that of the 206, Tigra and Smart?
