This car looks worse every time I see it..

Alfa has decided to use the still-new Mito as the launch pad for its ‘revolutionary’ Multiair engines. Initially, they will come in 1.4-litre capacities as a naturally aspirated 103bhp unit, a 132bhp turbo and a 167bhp turbo.

Sounds a corker of an engine. Diesel leves of Power, Torque and economy but none of the derv polutants.

Wonder if Fiat will stick it in the 500?

The 500 was going to have to have the Small Gasoline Engine (SGE) twin cylinder with multi-air technology and develop something like 100 BHP from 0.9 litres (with turbo I think?).

That would be the engine to watch!

revolutionary new technology from Fiat? - great to hear, now lets see the motor in some of their larger and massively overweight Alfas.

If he's going to be banned it should be for the constant advertising and not because he doesn't like the look of the Mito. He's entitled to that opinion.

As for the new Multiair engines, they sound very impressive indeed.

AC even seems to be pleased with the ride, steering and handling...who knows, they may like it on UK roads and finally put to rest the car's achille's heal.

Great to see there is still life left in oil burning engines (or even renewable alcohol I guess)! Would rather listen to this engine while going for a drive than an induction motor!

The 159 TI and Brera will have 1750 Turbo engines using the same technology

This is potentially the biggest thing in petrol engines since electronic fuel injection. Great to see the Italians getting back to proper engineering leadership for mainstream cars, rather than just the frivolous end of the market.
