It seems our initial instincts were correct, with the unnamed Mitsubishi teaser all but confirmed to be the new Colt.
Leaked screen captures from an official Mitsubishi marketing video plainly suggest the darkened teaser does in fact depict the Colt which now shares the Lancer's front-end styling.
Competing speculation suggested the teaser could be a production version of a new Crossover model; however the rounded headlights shared with the Colt and teaser image are a dead giveaway.
These new images also reveal significant revisions to the taillights and rear bumper.
The car will make its official debut at the Paris Motor Show, with Australian sales likely to follow in 2009.
