The new Alfa Romeo Mito has gone on sale in Ireland with a price-tag starting from €18,295. Revised for 2016, Alfa Romeo says that the new look emulates the style and attitude of the new Giulia, with more technology, a revised range and the introduction of the updated 1.3-litre JTDM-2 turbo diesel. It offers an increased 95hp output and reduced CO2 emissions of just 89g/km.
The Italian carmaker adds that to give the Mito the new Alfa Romeo family feel the styling has been revised with new sports grilles, dark-finish headlamp bezels, revised rear bumper designs and new alloy wheels, as well as new Alfa White paint option.
Inside, all models get new upgraded seat upholsteries, ‘Uconnect Live’ services and a new finish on the centre console, dashboard and door trims. The new Alfa Romeo logo also features inside and out, while the Mito badge adopts the same script as that of the new Giulia.
The entry-point trim level known simply as Alfa Romeo Mito comes with good standard equipment including new 16-inch alloy wheels, satin chrome-effect exterior detailing (door handles, grille surrounds, headlamp and tail lamp surrounds), air conditioning, Alfa DNA driving mode selector, a rear spoiler and a Uconnect 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. The Mito Super and Super Sport are the two higher trim levels on offer.
Engine choices include the 78hp 1.4-litre petrol at €18,295; the 875cc Turbo Petrol TwinAir 105hp at €19,795; and the 1.3 JTDM-2 95hp for €20,545. Some key options include the Visibility Pack (auto headlamps and wipers, and electro-chromic rear-view mirror) at €250; and a Comfort Pack (front centre armrest, rear parking sensors and front seat lumbar adjustment) €500. There is also a further list of optional extras.
