Alfa Romeo Mito

Alfa Romeo has revitalised its base model MiTo coupe with a competitively priced range, updated styling, and new features. MiTo Series 2 is headlined by the introduction of the new entry level model featuring the 2011 International Engine of the Year – the turbocharged, 875cc, twin-cylinder engine that is called the TwinAir.

This compact small engine produces 77kW of power and 145Nm of torque while having the lowest carbon dioxide emissions of any quantity petrol engine in the world. The TwinAir is also highly fuel efficient, with combined fuel consumption figures of 4.2 litres per 100km. It is matched with a slick-shifting six-speed manual that provides an exhilarating drive for the enthusiast driver.

Fitted with this base engine, the model will retail for $22,500, representing an enticing proposition for those interested in joining the evocative world of Alfa Romeo.

Going up the model range, the TwinAir variant is joined by the 1.4-litre MultiAir powerplant, which produces 99kW and 206Nm of torque. The 1.4-litre MultiAir was named Best New Engine at the 2010 International Engine of the Year awards – a further reminder of Alfa Romeo’s engineering innovation. This engine is offered in two model variants – Progression and Distinctive and with either five-speed manual or TCT transmissions. The TCT gearbox uses a dual dry clutch to provide fast shifting while enhancing fuel economy and practicality around city and suburban areas.

The larger engined MiTo has prices starting at $24,500.

Exterior styling changes on the latest generation MiTo include a reinvigorated face, with chrome-plated grille surround and updated head and taillight surround finishes. The interior benefits from a number of changes, notably the new Uconnect Infotainment system. The system, which has a five-inch colour touch screen, allows the user to wirelessly stream Bluetooth phone and audio for optimum safety and convenience. New dashboard trims and seat fabric with multiple colour combinations allow the consumer to personalise MiTo to individual tastes.
