Mitsubishi Colt CZC convertible spring launch

The third member of the new Mitsubishi Colt family, the CZC convertible, will go on sale in the UK by April.

The new car features a fully retractable automatic retractable hard-top and will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The Colt CZC shares its platform and basic body structure with the five-door Colt. It has a 2+2 seating configuration and boasts a pair of rear seats as well as a luggage compartment, even when the roof is retracted.

It will go on sale with a choice of two models – the £13,999 Colt CZC and £15,999 Colt CZC Turbo. Both are powered by an all-alloy 16-valve petrol engine.

The top-line CZC Turbo borrows the 1468cc petrol engine from three-door Colt CZT.

Developing 147bhp, the CZC Turbo reaches 0-62mph in 8.4seconds and has a 126mph maximum speed.

Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, leather steering wheel and gear lever, radio/CD/MP3 stereo, four airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) and integrated front fog lights.

Upgrading to the Colt CZC Turbo adds sports suspension, M-ASTC stability and traction control, part leather seats, a restyled front bumper and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Production of the range will start at Pininfarina’s Bairo plant near Turin, on March 7.
