Dynamic design, attention to detail and selected materials make the MiTo a perfect example of Italian style. Borrowing some distinctive features from the exquisite Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, the new Mito will pull on your heartstrings.
The new Alfa MiTo perfectly encapsulates all of Alfa Romeo’s core qualities into a compact yet sporting package. Its styling is characteristic of Alfa, borrowing features from the iconic 8C Competizione. These distinguished features include the unique shaping of the windows and a three-part “trilobo” motif that defines the bumpers, the headlights and the LED tail-lights. This stunning design has been enhanced by the addition of modern design flairs around the headlights and tail-lights, which feature a range of material processing and colours, creating an “eye-liner” effect that highlights and enhances each curve of the bodywork. Each of these features comes together to give the MiTo impeccable style that will certainly turn heads.
The interior is similarly distinctive, thanks to the typically bold Italian design and use of high quality materials throughout. The satin-chrome centre console and a dashboard full of colour and character further enhance the stylish appeal.
The new Mito is packed full of innovative technology including Alfa D.N.A. the exclusive Alfa Romeo Driving selector that adjusts the engine, brakes, steering, suspension and gearbox depending on the driving mode (Dynamic, Normal or All-Weather) chosen by the driver.
The MiTo has a choice of three petrol engines and two diesel engines, each of which has been designed to complement the MiTo perfectly. The base model 1.4-litre 16V petrol produces 95bhp and can propel the MiTo from 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds, and reach an impressive top speed of 112mph. The top of the range Turbo petrol decreases the 0-60mph time by 3.2 seconds and adds a further 22mph to the top speed. This impressive performance is further enhanced by the soundtrack produced by the engine, and is one of the highlights of this beautiful, small car. These engines don't just perform well, they do it with low running costs and CO2 levels, getting up to 62.8 MPG and with just 119g/km of CO2.
But the MiTo isn’t all style and no substance: the safety features are state-of-the-art and include seven airbags, Vehicle Dynamic control, a brand-new Electronic Stability Programme exclusive to Alfa; Anti-slip Regulation, Cornering Brake Control, Dynamic Steering Torque and Hydraulic Braking System with Hill-hold. All of this has contributed towards the MiTo being awarded the maximum five stars for safety from the testers at EuroNCAP.
