Alfa MiTo TwinAir UK Price


The two-cylinder version of the Alfa Romeo MiTo is finally on sale in the UK, with a base price of £14,150 and £15,350 for Sprint and Distinctive respectively.

The TwinAir version is powered by a multi-award winning 85hp TwinAir engine – an 875cc twin-cylinder turbo powerplant with electro-hydraulic valve control technology that delivers outstanding fuel economy with sub-100g/km CO2 emissions. With a CO2 output of just 98g/km and official Combined Cycle fuel economy of 67.3mpg, the Alfa MiTo TwinAir is the cleanest and most economical model in its class. Besides the economy and tax benefits, this engine is also very good fun to drive. It also features a series of modifications intended to further improve both the level of comfort and the quality of driving.

The MiTo TwinAir range is available in a new metallic body colour – Ametista Black with a purple hue, and also comes with a long list of standard equipments. This car could either be a winner, like the 500 TwinAir was, or a total failure. It’s heavier than the 500, but no more powerful, so… Let’s see how things will go on.
