You don’t have to be a connoisseur to see that the Mitsubishi Colt is derived from the Renault Clio. Which car is the best for bargain hunters?
Mitsubishi is experiencing its resurrection in the Netherlands on the basis of Renault. First came the new one Mitsubishi ASX, which was derived from the Captur. And now there is a Japanese Clio clone with a well-known name, the Colt. We dive into the price list of both models.
Clio almost 1000 euros more expensive
The base price of the Mitsubishi Colt is 21,990 euros, while for a Renault Clio pays at least 22,950 euros. Saves you almost 1000 euros … but also a lot of power. The Colt’s 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine produces 65 horsepower. The Clio also has a three-cylinder, but it has a turbo and is good for 91 hp. The Colt also has a five-speed gearbox, while the Clio has a six-speed gearbox.

Mitsubishi Colt Hybrid
It’s not like that Mitsubishi is fobbed off by Renault alone with a slow, turboless three-cylinder. You can indeed opt for 91 hp and a sixth gear, but the price of the Colt will shoot up. You pay 24,990, although the standard equipment is more extensive, including keyless entry and the option to charge your phone.
And then that complicated hybrid engine from Renault. Mitsubishi is also allowed to use this. The Colt 1.6 Hybrid costs 27,990 euros. With a starting price of 25,820 euros, the Renault E-Tech Hybrid 145 is the cheaper option, although it is less well equipped. For example, the Colt has 16-inch light metal as standard, with the Clio you have to move to the Techno trim level. And with its price of 27,820, it is almost at the level of the Colt.
All in all, there’s not much credit to be had from the Colt and the Clio for bargain hunters; versions with the same engine and equipment cost about the same. There is a big difference in warranty: Renault does not go beyond two years, while Mitsubishi is extremely generous with an eight-year manufacturer’s warranty.
