A refreshed Alfa Romeo Mito, which is expected to launch in 2016, has been seen testing on Italian roads for the first time.
The camouflaged car appears to be a facelift of the current model rather than an all-new car.
The updated version is likely to arrive with a new honeycombe front grill replacing the existing horizontal chrome bars. Minor changes to the front and rear light clusters and bumpers are also likely, all of which are aimed at bringing the Mito into line with Alfa’s new Giulia.
The Mito was launched in 2008 as a replacement for the 149. In late 2013 the Mito underwent its first minor facelift. At the time a simplified range was introduced along with a new economical 0.9-litre turbo Twinair engine and upgraded materials.
As with the previous facelift, Alfa Romeo is likely to use this as an opportunity to introduce further upgrades on the Mito as well as an improved range of engines.
