- Interior Technology
The MiTo comes with a manual/automatic combination gearbox, which enables you to accelerate to higher levels – up to 135hp in fact, over six speeds. This offers a wonderfully sporty feel, something that is mostly lacking in hatchbacks. This strong, smooth power delivery reminds you that you really are driving an Alfa. Mini, are you listening? Mini also has a 6 speed gearbox but both are outmoded by Audi A1 seven speed S Tronic! Then again, an Alfa has it's own distinctive feel which only an Alfa fan can describe.
Styling is one of the big attractions of any Alfa Romeo, and this model doesn’t disappoint. The unique triangular grille provides the focal point of this car’s modern, sporty styling. If resale value is a concern, then the looks alone should help it retain its value better than many cars.
Despite its modest size, there’s room for two adults in the back, and ample leg room. Additionally, there’s plenty of space for shopping and other cargo. The interior has an expensive feel to it, with quality materials that are comparable to those found in an Audi A1 or a Mini. The MiTo did let down a little by the stereo system and interior technology, which does not quite match the otherwise prestigious feel of the car.
Overall, the MiTo is not only great for daily usage, but also adds a little more excitement to driving by banishing the ‘slow hatchback’ syndrome – not only in its power and handling, but also in its styling.
