ALFA ROMEO MiTo review

NGC verdict 23.07.2012

Sub 100 g/km cars are rare in the premium car class and Alfa Romeo has achieved it by fitting Fiat Group's award winning 875cc twin-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine into its stylish MiTo. It gives a great looking car excellent potential economy but drivers will need skill and patience to achieve it. Small turbo engines can be winners if you have a light foot and short-shift by changing up gears early.

The MiTo is still unique in class for having driver selectable engine modes (DNA system). Low benefit in kind tax for company car users can't be matched by Audi's A1, equivalent Minis, Citroen DS3s or Volkswagen Polos – which only have five-speed gearboxes compares to the Alfa's six. Alfa Romeo MiTos bought before 30 September 2012 benefit from a five year warranty rather than the present three-year one.
