- Various engines to choose from
- Low running costs
- Good level of safety
- Unique interior and exterior looks
Discover the benefits of the Alfa Romeo Mito in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
During its lifetime, the Mito has undergone a couple of facelifts and updates, which means various engines have come and gone. The most common are:
- 0.9-litre Twinair, 104bhp: 0 to 62mph in 11.4 seconds, up to 67.2mpg combined.
- 1.4-litre Multiair, 138bhp: 0 to 62mph in 8.1 seconds, up to 52.3mpg combined.
- 1.3-litre, 94bhp: 0 to 62mph in 12.5 seconds, up to 83.1 mpg.
Other engine variants can be found on the used car market, including the higher-powered 1.4-litre Multiair petrol that can go from 0 to 62mph in as little as 7.3 seconds. Automatic and manual gearboxes can also be found. Larger bumps and cracks in the road can cause discomfort, but the Mito is suitable for nipping around town.
Practicality and Running Costs
As you'd probably expect, the Mito isn't the most practical of vehicles, being a supermini. However, there's enough head and legroom for driver and front passenger to be fairly comfortable.
Coming exclusively in a 3-door setup, passengers will have to clamber into the rear. But once there, the average adult will be content on short journeys - taller ones may struggle.
The Mito's boot is well-sized, offering 270 litres in its standard setup. Folding down the rear bench sees this space increase significantly, giving you a fairly versatile area to transport luggage. However, it does have a high load lip, which can make things more difficult when lifting heavier bits of luggage.
Starting at group 8 (out of 50), insurance costs are reasonable. However, if choosing a higher-powered variant, this can increase to group 28. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are also well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior design mirrors the exterior's eye-catching styling thanks to round shapes placed across the dashboard. However, overall quality may not live up to your expectations of what an Alfa Romeo should offer.
Entry-level specifications get features such as a Uconnect 5-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system as well as a leather steering wheel. Higher specification used examples can unlock further bits of kit such as cruise control, leather seats and sat nav.
When the Mito was released, it scored the full five-star safety rating during Euro NCAP's crash test thanks to a range of safety features, such as:
- Rear parking sensors
- Hill-hold assist
- Seven airbags
- Electronic stability control
- Tyre-pressure monitoring system
Is the Alfa Romeo Mito right for me?
Similar to other Alfa Romeo models, the Mito is one of the most stylish cars in its class and is inexpensive to run. Unfortunately, production ended in early 2019, but plenty of great examples can be found on the used car market.
Its main competitors include the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa, which have a wide range of benefits that make them some of the UK's most popular cars. The Audi A1, MINI Hatchback and Mercedes-Benz A-Class are also great options if you're in the market for something more premium.
