Alfa Romeo MiTo Cars
Hello, I'm about to order an ALFA ROMEO MiTo and to decide on the colour would like to see side / front / rear views of the car in Gardenia White. Could you send me shots on email@example.com ? Man...
What is so great about this car? Have you ever driven one?
When will Alfa Romeo bring the MiTo to the U.S.?
Alfa Romeo MiTo Overview
Alfa Romeo's new MiTo three-door hatchback subcompact should arrive in the U.S. in 2011, but it's already made quite a debut in Europe, having recently taken the journalist-awarded title of 2009 European Car of the Year. (Fans of American cars may find the news that Ford's Fiesta took third in the European Car of the Year contest and will arrive in the U.S. in 2010 exciting.) The MiTo, named after Milan and Turin, where it was designed and gets built, competes directly with the MINI and Audi's soon-to-arrive-in-the-U.S. A1.
The MiTo shares some front-end looks with Alfa's new 8C Competizione and its platform with the Fiat Grande Punto and Opel Corsa. It features the Alfa DNA system, which adjusts the engine, transmission, brakes, steering, and suspension to one of three driver-selectable settings - Dynamic, Normal, or All-Weather. The entry-level MiTo trim features a 1.4-liter four cylinder that produces 79 hp, while the top of the line has a turbocharged 1.4-liter that produces 153 hp and can get the car from 0 to 62 mph in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 134 mph.
