Ralliart Colt is no Evo
31 May 2006

Hopes of a Evo version of Mitsubishi's baby Colt hatchback appear to be ill-founded - despite the body kit, this new Ralliart Version-R features only a mild performance boost over the regular Colt CZT.

Launched in Tokyo yesterday, the Version-R features a breathed-on version of the Turbo's 1.5-litre engine, as well as the ubiquitous bodykit and tweaked suspension.

The most curious thing, surely, is the decision to use the five-door model as the basis for the higher-performance version. But in any case, Mitsubishi has no plans to bring the car to the UK.

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
