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.
