2011 Alfa Romeo MiTo

Alfa Romeo has reshaped their MiTo line to better compete with the sports compact market leader, BMW’s Mini, and chief rival, Audi’s A1. Alfa Romeo will now offer nine choices in the product line, down from seventeen. The Sprint replaces the Turismo and Lusso trim levels. Meanwhile,  the entry level selection will now be known as Progression. Lastly, Alfa Romeo replaces the Veloce and performance Cloverleaf versions in favor of Distinctive and Quadrifoglio Verde.

The changes also stretch to engine and color selection. For Progression and Sprint, Alfa Romeo retires the 95 hp 1.4-liter in favor of a lower-emissions 78 hp 1.4.  Sprint or Distinctive trims come with the  MultiAir 105 hp 1.4. Those very concerned about CO2 emissions can choose the 85 hp 1.3 JTDM-2 diesel engine, available only in the Sprint. This engine meets any free travel emissions regulations overseas. The top of the line QV retains its MultiAir 170 hp 1.4. Finally, Alfa Romeo has added bronze metal to the color selection. Look for the Alfa Romeo MiTo on sale this month.
