From the spy photos, which was sent to us by a reader, it is clear that the new generation Colt pick-up's design is inspired by Mitsubishi Paris-Dakar rally car.
Mitsubishi has dropped the current model's straight-edged look in favour of a challenging, curvaceous appearance.
As with the current range there will double and single cab derivatives, and as our spy images show the popular clubcab model will still be available too.
There is no information yet on the engine range. Mitsubishi will probably only officially unveil the new Colt later this year and South African sales are expected to start at the end of 2006 or only early in 2007.
