Mitsubishi Space Star in the driving report

The start for the new little Mitsubishi was a bit confusing. It takes its name from a former Mitsubishi model, with which it has nothing in common - from the manufacturer's logo and the unshakable fact that cars have four wheels.

Therefore, set the stage free for a brand new Mitsubishi:

In the driving report:

Mitsubishi Space Star 1.2

Square, practical, economical

Small, cute and without optical gimmicks. The design of the test car painted in “apple green” and the second smallest Mitsubishi at the moment, follows the utility and it seems clear: From A to B and back, and that is very practical, please. At the front, the large halogen lights shine like funny eyes and those who choose the Shine + equipment receive tinted windows in the second row. The 15-inch alloy wheels, however, are a bit lost in the wheel arches and where bumper strips used to protect against parking lot scratches, now painted surfaces shine. But that is normal and not surprising, all manufacturers now do it that way.

But convinced the little Japanese with good clarity and that at least in all directions. However, Mitsubishi offers both a parking assistant with 4 sensors for the rear, as well as retrofitted protective strips for the doors. Sure is sure, you want to think.

Three-cylinder for the city

Three cylinders must suffice. In the test car, the stronger of the two offered engines was installed. With its 1.2 liter displacement, the four-valve engine and variable valve timing light alloy engine is good for a performance of 80 PS and 106 Nm at 4.000 revolutions. For the city of this engine is enough. He can even be pleasant schaltfaul drive, buzzing while the slightly grumpy song of the three-cylinder engines and skimpy with the consumption.

Thanks to an automatic start-stop system in series, the 80 PS engine has a standard consumption of 4.4 liters per 100 kilometers. The 1.0 liter three-cylinder offered as an alternative should even manage with just 4 liters in the NEDC standard.
