The first independent renders of the revived Mitsubishi Colt have been unveiled.

Mitsubishi has announced that it is going to bring back the Mitsubishi Colt hatchback.

The Japanese automaker has even released a teaser of the revived hatchback.

The history of Mitsubishi Colt hatchback began back in 1962, when a two-door sedan with rear-engine layout entered the market.

After that, the Colt was produced as a sedan, wagon, fastback and even a pickup truck. The main body type for this model became a hatchback.

The last generation of the car appeared in 2002, and now the Japanese are going to create a new generation of cars.

On the official teaser we see a hatchback in the spirit of Renault Clio sample 2019.

The car has received a rather stylish front end with the original radiator grille and recognizable X-shaped decorative details.

The headlights will also be redesigned, as well as both bumpers. But the design of the back has not been declassified yet.

As a platform will be chosen imported architecture CMF-B, and the engine may well be borrowed from a hybrid Clio E-Tech.

If it is so, the revived hatchback will be equipped with a 140-horsepower hybrid on the basis of «atmospheric» 1.6-liter and electric motor.

Transmission is an automatic transmission with six speeds. Turkish plant of the brand will release the novelty.

The new generation of Mitsubishi Colt should debut during the current year.

Model Colt first appeared in 1962, then it was a two-door sedan with rear-engine configuration.

In subsequent generations, the engine was installed at the front, and since 1978, the small car received front-wheel drive.

Over several decades of production, the model was produced in different bodies — sedan, station wagon, fastback and even a pickup, but the main variant was a hatchback.

The last generation of Colt was presented in 2002 and stayed on the conveyor for 10 years — until 2012. Now, Mitsubishi is preparing a new generation, which will be designed for the European market.

Judging by the previously published teaser, the new Colt will be a modified Renault Clio hatchback, which premiered in early 2019.

So far, we can only partially discern the modified front end with the original grille, which will house the branded X-shaped trim elements.

Most likely, the Colt will get different shaped headlights, and there is also a front bumper with a different design.

As for the rear, there’s no information yet, but we can assume that there will be original headlights, modified trunk lid and new bumper.

Like the Clio of the last generation, the new Colt will be built on CMF-B platform, which is also used by the new Nissan Micra.

Powertrain can be borrowed from the hybrid Clio E-Tech — 1.6 petrol «atmospheric» combined with an electric motor, the total capacity of 140 hp.
