Mitsubishi Colt is coming to the U.S.
As you may have read a while back, I recently called Mitsubishi's Colt a "holdout" in the U.S. market. Well, apparently, the Colt is a holdout no more. According to an article on Autoblog, the Colt is headed back to the U.S.!
According to Autoblog, Mitsubishi made the announcement in a presentation at the LA Auto Show.
If you haven't noticed, Mitsubishi needs to bolster its current U.S. lineup. Sure, the EVO is a great halo car, and the Lancer ant Outlander are decent offerings. However, vehicles such as the Eclipse, Galant, and Raider haven't exactly sent buyers flocking into Mitsubishi dealerships. With the large number of subcompacts headed to the U.S., it only makes sense for Mitsubishi to bring the Colt here.
As a fan (and former owner) of Mitsubishi products, I'm highly anticipating the Colt. I'll be sure to post more information as it becomes available, too. (FYI, the three-door Ralliart version is pretty sexy!)
