Tiny turbocharged urban tearaway lands in July
15 February 2007

Never mind the new Evo – from 1 July this year, the UK gets a far funkier Mitsubishi, in the shape of the i city car.

Previously only on sale in Japan, the i will be available in the UK in just one trim level, at £8999.

For your money you get a 0.6-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine, mounted under the boot floor, and driving the rear wheels through a standard four-speed auto 'box.

But that's where the similarities with the Smart Fortwo end – the i has four doors and four seats. Despite all this, and decent interior space, it's a whopping 8cm smaller than the Ford Ka.

We've already driven the i, and reckon it has big appeal for city dwellers. Read our First Drive here.
