Deal of the week: Mitsubishi Colt

Mitsubishi is offering zero per cent VAT on its Colt supermini.

Mitsubishi Colt five-door 2009 front quarter

Mitsubishi's zero per cent VAT offer on its Colt supermini cuts the price of the 1.3-litre CZ2 five-door by £1,905, to £9,520. It comes with alloys and cruise control as standard. The offer also knocks £1,995 off the Colt CZ2 ClearTec, slashing the £11,725 price tag to £9,770. The Colt, rival to the Honda Jazz, Hyundai i20 and Kia Rio, is well made, cleverly designed and, even before the current deal, excellent value for money. The 1.3-litre engine copes well with motorways and is fun to drive with precise steering and competent handling. Privacy glass on the rear windscreen and body-coloured bumpers are standard, along with central locking, keyless entry, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and a radio/CD player with four speakers. It also comes with air-conditioning and front and rear electric windows, while a multi-info display makes the CZ2 is a fun and relaxing drive. The front cabin is spacious and affords a good view of the road ahead. The rear seats are also comfortable, airy and can comfortably seat three adults thanks to a low transmission tunnel. Ride comfort is good, even on poorly surfaced roads The Colt is highly practical with five doors and a boot measuring just under 200 litres, and it scored a highly respectable four out of five stars on the Euro NCAP crash safety test. The car'sClear-Tec focuses on fuel economy and the Colt is capable of returning 56.5mpg, costs a reasonable £30 a year to tax and should be relatively cheap to insure, too.
