Mitsubishi Ralliart Eclipse
Everyone knows about the first and second generation Eclipse. They have
created a cult like following in the tuner world. Mitsubishi hoped to keep
that passion alive when they released the third generation Eclipse, but
failed miserably. The major complaint was that it was underpowered. You
would think they would fix it by the 4th generation of Eclipse.

It's amazing what advertising can do for a car's image. Take our Mitsubishi
Colt, for example. When we got the keys to the 1.5-litre DI-D Equippe last
October, it was a rare sight on UK roads, and few people knew what it was.
Since then, a high-profile TV publicity campaign has kicked in, featuring
Colt cars playing football. Love it or hate it, people remember the advert
- and you can see the recognition on their faces when they spot the baby
Regardless of its capabilities on the pitch, the Mitsubishi has risen to a
number of challenges over the past few months. During the week, it's been
subjected to commuting to and from the centre of London, rarely travelling
faster than walking pace. At the
weekends, however, it's been pressed into service for regular cross-country
trips of 200 miles or more. And despite its size and modest engine, the
Colt has coped admirably.
Indeed, the 1.5-litre diesel motor is one of the best features. With only
three cylinders rather than the usual four, it has an interestingly eager
thrum, delivering healthy performance: a torque output of 210Nm from as low
as 1,800rpm gives excellent acceleration. The car can get a little noisy on
the motorway, but it returns great economy, achieving an average of 48mpg
in our hands.
The amount of space inside certainly adds to the comfort. There is headroom
to spare, even with tall passengers, and good legroom, too. And the
folding-seat arrangement, combined with that lofty bodyshape, makes the
Colt ideal for carrying all sorts of loads. After some DIY, I had to take a
stack of scrap wood to the tip, including one thick beam more than two
metres long. It extended just a few centimetres beyond the hatch - but
opening the glovebox provided room to fit it in.
With more than 9,000 miles now piled on, the Colt still feels fresh. There
is the odd creak from the rear seats, but otherwise the interior is wearing
well, despite its busy life. The only complaints concern the driving
position - which isn't ideal for all motorists, as there's no
reach-adjustable steering wheel - and the large A-pillars, because they can
hamper visibility at junctions. We had expected to complete a service as
the car edged towards the 10,000-mile mark, but even the dealer wasn't sure
about the maintenance intervals on the Colt. We learned it only needs
attention every 12,000 miles, on a par with its petrol siblings.
So while it might not have as much character as some more stylish rivals,
our Mitsubishi Colt is proving capable at ferrying both people and luggage
without complaint, while delivering good economy and reliability. For a
private buyer, those strong qualities have plenty of appeal. Matt Joy
When I stepped into the Colt for the first time, I just couldn't believe
how roomy it was for a supermini. Sitting in the driver's seat and looking
left, it seemed enormous. The adjustability of the chair is great - and, to
make the most of the high roofline, you can pump the base up , which gives
a great view of the road ahead. The combination of the funky, spacious
interior and the excellent diesel engine makes the Mitsubishi a really
entertaining small car to drive. Richard Yarrow, associate editorUnder the
bonnet the Colt provides used car buyers with plenty of choice, with four
petrol and one diesel engine on offer. Despite its modest 74bhp the entry
level 1.1 litre three-cylinder petrol unit feels eager and actually sounds
nice when revved. The slick five-speed gearbox encourages you to use the
ratios and the taught chassis feels reassuring.
With 20bhp more the 1.3 litre should feel noticeably quicker but it rarely
does and in reality offers few advantages. In a car weighing a little over
2,000lb, the 107bhp on tap from the flagship 1.5 litre petrol model
provides a decent turn of speed and proved so popular that Mitsubishi
introduced a turbocharged 147bhp version
in February 2005. These high performance CZT models provide the kind of
thrills that are now so often lacking in modern supermini hot hatches.
Car Throttle: 2011 Skoda Fabia vRS Review
We've all seen the "Made of Meaner Stuff" advert for the Skoda Fabia vRS,
but does it have the same venom-drinking bite? Adnan shows this stunner of
a vRS some country roads, and compares it to chocolate biscuits. Intrigued?
