Here's the first review we've seen from Ireland, from the Independent's motoring editor, Eddie Cunningham.
Some interesting tidbits came out of this one, particularly a comparison of the two engines. Up to the roll-out in Europe/U.K., buyers in other markets have not been given the choice between the 1.0L or 1.2L engines.
I wish he'd been able to say why he feels the 1.0 is better. He also recommended the 14 inch wheels over the 15's, but didn't say why.take my word for it – the 1-litre version of it is the car for you. The 1.2-litre is not nearly as nice, though both are frugal
- peppy, decent handling - "I was happy to zip around in it"
- low price, low road tax (owing to low emissions)
- decent interior space for its size
- fuel economy
- strong warranty
- "Space Star" name may prove somewhat confusing (it's not at all like the previous model)
- rear seat comfort not great, though room is acceptable
- limited steering wheel adjustment
- indifferent styling
"...It's not a bad little car." Price, running costs, warranty & Mitsubishi engineering are its strong points.
Full review: Mitsubishi go big on Space Star's small price
