Mitsubishi Colt Facelift Gets Lancer Nose Job – Premieres in Paris
The revised 2009 Mitsubishi Colt has been captured on film during a promotional photo shoot in Berlin, Germany. The main changes are to the front end that echoes the styling of the new Lancer Sedan and Sportback. Judging from the picture, Mitsubishi’s designers seem to have done a great job incorporating the shark-like nose to their subcompact hatchback that will compete in Europe against the new Ford Fiesta, Fiat Grande Punto, Toyota Yaris and others. Changes to the rear end are limited to the restyled bumper, and the darker tail lamps.
Our sources confirm the report from the scanned newspaper article that the facelifted Mitsubishi Colt will indeed make its global debut at the Paris Motor Show in early October with sales in Europe set to begin shortly after.
