Cloverleaf Is Back On Alfa Romeo Mito
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the Quadrifoglio Verde badge on an Alfa Romeo (better known as Cloverleaf here in the UK) but at long last the sporty badge has returned on a new Alfa Romeo Mito.
The Mito Cloverleaf is filling in the gap left by the posponed Mito GTA. Powered by a 170bhp 1.4-litre engine it lacks the ultimate firepower that was promised by the GTA, but it sits at the top of the Mito range as the most powerful version on offer.
The new engine uses the same Multi-air technology that has been introduced on the buy generic aciphex Punto Evo” href=”http://drivingspirit.com/2009-fiat-punto-evo-preview/” target=”_self”>Fiat Punto Evo to improve both performance and economy. There are no performance figures just yet, but Alfa are claiming the Mito Cloverleaf will return 49mpg despite the promise of 170bhp. This is helped by a new six-speed transmission that has been designed to deliver quicker changes and improved fuel efficiency.
Alfa have also added a ‘Dynamic Suspension’ with continuously variable shock absorbers claiming the new setup “allows the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde to excel even further in terms of agility and handling, giving it exceptional drivability and unparalleled safety.”
