The new Alfa Romeo Mito range features the addition of three new engines and cheaper pricing
3 May 2011

Alfa Romeo has revised its Mito range, cutting the number of model variants and lowering the price of the entry-level model.

The new range has been streamlined from 17 variants to nine, with both Turismo and Lusso versions replaced with the Sprint, Veloce and Cloverleaf replaced with the Distinctive and Quadrifoglio Verde and entry-level models now called Progression.

Three new engines feature in the revised line up - a 1.4-litre 8v 78bhp with stop-start, 1.4-litre MultiAir with 105bhp and 1.3-litre JTDM-2, which produces 85bhp and emits 95g/km CO2.

Prices have also been reduced. The new entry-level 8v version undercuts the previous car’s £12,285 price-tag by £35, now priced at £12,250, rising to £17,955 for the top-spec 1.4-litre MultiAir 168bhp Quadrifoglio Verde. That compares with the previous car’s £18,365 price.

Another new addition to the range is the firm’s Metal Bronze exterior, a colour that can also be chosen inside on Progression and Sprint models.
