Alfa adds a new Turismo Sport trim level to the Mito range

Alfa Romeo has added a new limited edition trim level to the Mito range: Turismo Sport.

Alfa Romeo Mito Turismo Sport models come with £1610 worth of optional equipment over standard Turismo models for a £450 premium. This extra kit includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, cruise control, Blue&Me connectivity technology, fog lights and a leather steering wheel incorporating audio and phone controls.

The 95bhp 1.4 16V petrol engine comes as standard, costing from £12,895, and is joined by the 95bhp 1.3 JTDM-2 Multijet turbodiesel, which is available from £14,410.

The second-generation Multijet turbodiesel engine helps the Turismo Sport get from 0-62mph in 11.6 seconds; it has CO2 emissions of 112g/km and combined fuel economy of 65.7mpg.

The special is available in a choice of three colours: Solid Black (as standard), Biancospino White or the new Alfa Metallic Red.

The Alfa Romeo Mito
The Mito is Alfa Romeo’s first true supermini since the Alfasud

The Alfa Romeo Mito is a usable, fun package, but the DNA system frustrates

+ 1 Great looking - flawed everywhere else. Just not up to scratch

+ another one.

But I just wish they had a better dealer network. I hear things have improved, but I'm still not willing to trust a small high tech Italian car unless I know the reliability and back-up are up to scratch.

Why doesn't Autocar ever have a fleet Alfa ? really interested in the Mito but put off by Alfa's track record on reliability and dealer network.

Interesting to see if things have changed.

If I was looking for a small supermini at the moment I would get the Mito, its much nicer then the fiesta, corsa, Polo and usual suspects. I could even live with knowing its a fiat !

i love the little MiTo, but its a bit too expensive for what it is, & sales are not great, Alfa need to address this. That said if i were in the market to replace my 166, i'd probably bite a dealers arm off to get one!

I had a look over the Mito at an Alfa Romeo dealer and it seems a good car and even the Junior spec seems fine. It looks well "in the flesh" and is probably better value than a Fiesta. I suppose if you're prepared to keep it a reasonable time, it makes sense. Depreciation will probably be horrendous, but the up-side is that you will have a car that looks like it's much more expensive than it is and it probably makes better sense to keep it, enjoy it and not be tempted by every new car that comes along. Since the Lancia Ypsilon will never be available in the UK, this is probably my only hope for an Italian car which is affordable and looks good.
