Mitsubishi just introduced a major redesign of the Mitsubishi Colt Plus station wagon in Taiwan. The car has been reskinned completely and the front-end receives a new bumper, grille and LED headlamps that are reminiscent of the Attrage.

New features on-board are reversing camera, heated seats, push button start, trip computer, keyless entry, multi-function steering wheel, automatic two-zone climate control and other features like dual airbags, ABS, BAS and EBD.
Under the hood is the most important change of them all. The five-seater is powered by a 1.5L engine replacing the previous 1.6L MIVEC. It develops healthy outputs of 112hp and 150Nm and is available only with a CVT with seven pre-set speeds. The mileage is rated at 18.9 kmpl.
The Colt Plus competes on the Taiwanese market with the Nissan Livina, Toyota Yaris, Honda Jazz, Nissan Micra and the Ford Fiesta. It is launched in four variants priced between 11.83 lakh rupees and 14.07 lakh rupees.
