Alfa Romeo has launched the 2014 Alfa Mito hatchback in the UK which comes with a host of improvements good enough to bring smile to the faces of buyers. In brief, the 2014 Mito offers higher specification, revised interiors, subtle styling enhancements and even more advanced technologies.
Starting with the exterior first, the 2014 Mito features a new, chromed front grille; titanium grey headlamp and tail lamps surrounds, tinted rear windows and a sports rear bumper, as well as revised color options including a new “Matte Magnesio Grey” finish.
Moving on to the interior now, the 2014 Mito benefits from a new dashboard, upgraded plastics and a new Uconnect™ five-inch, touch-screen infotainment system with voice recognition, Bluetooth, steering wheel remote controls, USB/Aux ports and optional satellite navigation. The features list does not end here as the 2014 Mito also gets traction, braking and stability control systems as standard. Starring effort and throttle response can be adjusted by Alfa Romeo’s exclusive ALFA D.N.A. driving system featuring three different modes. The same system also takes care of the settings of ALFA SDC adaptive suspension and ALFA TCT transmission.
Alfa Romeo is offering the 2014 Mito in four trims: Sprint, Distinctive, Sportiva and Quadrifoglio Verde (QV). In addition to the aforementioned features, all the trims feature Start& Stop system; air conditioning; a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob; electric windows and mirrors; seven airbags; front fog lamps, a rear spoiler, rear parking sensors and alloy wheels. The top of the line Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) grade flaunts additional features like red, four-piston Brembo brake callipers, SDC active suspension system, bespoke sports seats with uprated upholstery and special QV wing badges.
The engine lineup for the Mito now lists three petrol and two diesel units. The 0.9 litre TwinAir Turbo engine now offers 105 bhp compared to the previous 85 bhp, a 20 bhp performance boost, helping the car touch the 62 mph mark 1.1 seconds faster than the previous version. With increased performance the company has not sacrificed on efficiency, and the 2014 Mito records a combined fuel consumption of 67.3 mpg with CO2emissions standing at 99g/km.
The petrol engine lineup is further completed by the 1.4 TB MultiAir 135hp – available with a manual or the Alfa TCT twin dry clutch transmission, and the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170hp QV engine. The diesel range is powered by the 1.3 JTDM-2 85hp and the 1.6 JTDM-2 120hp units.
