It is clear from the image that the Mitsubishi Colt 2023 is based on the Renault Clio. The hatchback has the same silhouette and rear door handles are hidden in roof pillars. The car differs from the French colleague by the design of the front part with C-shaped LED headlights.

The hatchback is likely to be offered only in a hybrid version. From Renault Clio, the power plant E-Tech with a 1,6-liter petrol engine and electric motor with a total capacity of 140 hp will be borrowed.

Mitsubishi Colt will not be the only model of the brand based on Renault. Earlier it became known that the new Mitsubishi ASX will twin with Renault Captur.
