Alfa Romeo has revitalised its little MiTo coupe with a competitively priced range, updated styling, and new features.

MiTo Series 2 is headlined by the introduction of the new entry level model featuring the turbocharged, 875cc, twin-cylinder TwinAir engine.

This unit produces 77kW of responsive power and 145Nm of torque while having the lowest carbon dioxide emissions of any quantity petrol engine in the world.

The TwinAir is also highly fuel efficient, with a combined fuel consumption rating of 4.2 litres per 100km.

The 0.9 model will sell for $22,500*, representing an enticing proposition for those interested in joining the evocative world of Alfa Romeo.

It is matched with a slick-shifting six-speed manual that can provide an exhilarating drive for the enthusiast driver.

The TwinAir variant is joined by the 1.4-litre MultiAir powerplant, which produces 99kW and 206Nm of torque.

This engine is offered in two MiTo model variants – Progression and Distinctive.

The Progression model with five-speed manual is priced from $24,500* and the TCT transmission version is priced from $26,500*, whilst the Distinctive with TCT is priced from $28,000*.

The TCT gearbox uses a dual dry clutch to provide fast shifting while enhancing fuel economy and practicality around city and suburban areas.

Alfa Romeo’s famous 'DNA' dynamics system allows the driver to tailor vehicle behaviour to their needs by selecting from three different modes that adjust steering, gearbox, and electronics.

Exterior styling changes on the latest generation MiTo include a reinvigorated 'face', with chrome-plated grille surround and updated head and taillight surround finishes.

The interior benefits from a number of changes, notably the new Uconnect Infotainment system.

The system, which has a five-inch colour touch screen, allows the user to wirelessly stream Bluetooth phone and audio for optimum safety and convenience.

New dashboard trims and seat fabric with multiple colour combinations allow the consumer to personalise MiTo to individual tastes.

MiTo also has a new door trim design and black finish surrounding the centre mounted air conditioning vents to complement the new materials and cabin finishes.

Fiat Chrysler Australia CEO and President Veronica Johns said the Alfa Romeo MiTo Series 2 injected excitement into the segment at a time when consumers demanded exceptional product at a competitive price point.

“Introduction of the 0.9 TwinAir engine model MiTo brings the entry price to a more accessible level for aspiring Alfa owners while also providing them with one of the world’s most advanced engines,” Ms Johns said.

“This, combined with new Uconnect Infotainment system and enhanced interiors and exteriors provide further polish to an already stylish Italian.”
