The successor to the Mitsubishi Colt Space Star. (10 years ago there was a compact Mitsubishi Van same name, but otherwise has nothing in common with the new Space Star.)
Mitsubishi wanted to show the name change from Colt Space Star in that it is an all-new small car. After all, the new Space Star has also become even smaller than it was the Colt, but may feature a better space and better efficiency.
Trimmed entirely on the economy brings Space Star only 845 kg on the scales and has become easier than its predecessor by 125 kg. The drag coefficient is only 0.27 and thus has a positive effect on the consumption.
Under the hood of economical Space Star werkt a 1.0 liter 3-cylinder engine, whose power at 71 hp (52 kW) is. This is enough to convey the 371 cm-long small car in 13.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, and to make up to 172 km / h. Here, the little Mitsubishi is satisfied with 4.0 liters per 100 kilometers, corresponding to CO2 emissions of only 92 g / km.
With the basic engine Inform the equipment is also automatically connected to some offers already. In addition to ABS, ESP and 6 airbags are also already working air conditioning, front electric windows, central locking, stereo radio with CD - like playback control and electrically adjustable exterior mirrors - / MP3.
This one has then already 80 hp (59 kW), 15 "alloy wheels, a keyless entry and start system, leather steering wheel, electric windows front and rear, automatic air conditioning and a light and rain sensor on board.
As part of an eco test drives we could get a first impression of the new small car from Mitsubishi. Surprisingly generous space is failed, the Space Star offers plenty of space for a small car and also has many practical shelves.
The boot capacity has also grown with 235 liters compared to its predecessor. The design of the valve unit has been very clear, we have here focused on the essentials, but it runs very nice.
The 1.0 liter 3-cylinder carries out his work very quietly, so that you hardly notice that you do not have 4 cylinder under the hood. Especially in urban areas, it can also go very tangy, and with its maneuverability, the small Japanese can also convince.
Chassis and suspension are designed to be very comfortable, by the relatively long wheelbase of 245 cm and potholes are well filtered.
Who wants to reach the stated consumption from the factory, but must waive any driving pleasure and the air conditioning. We are still not come under 4.2 liters per 100 kilometers, but is still a good value.
