Cloverleaf-Lite With Alfa Romeo Sportiva

The Alfa Romeo MiTo and Giulietta ranges have just been injected with a little more sporty appeal in the shape of two new Sportiva models.

The Sportiva trim is effectively Cloverleaf-lite, bringing some of the visual features from the range-topping performance models and making them available to the more economical engines in the Mito and Giulietta ranges.

The Alfa MiTo Sportiva starts off as a Distinctive model and then adds ,£1,500 worth of optional extras for just £750 more. The MiTo Sportiva features exclusive 18-inch Quadrifoglio Verde wheels, kick plates and Sportiva badges. The cabin is revamped with a black theme by fitting darker headlining, a black leather steering wheel with matte black inserts, plus black Alcantara covered sport seats – all finished with green stitching.

There are three engine options available on the Alfa MiTo Sportiva. The two petrol choices are the 85bhp 875cc TwinAir (£16,100 OTR) and the 1.4-litre MultiAir with 135bhp (£17,000 OTR). For diesel buyers there is the option of the 1.6-litre JTDM-2 with 120bhp (£17,750 OTR).

On the Alfa Giulietta Sportiva version we start off with the foundations of the Veloce trim, adding bright red Brembo brake callipers mounted inside 18-inch wheels with a dark titanium finish wrapped in 225/40 R18 tyres. On the inside is sports leather upholstery plus a rear armrest with storage compartment and sport kick plates. The result is over £3,000 worth of upgrades for an £1,860 premium over the Veloce.

There are six engines to choose from on the Alfa Giulietta Sportiva as well as the option of Alfa’s new twin dry-clutch semi-automatic transmission, the ALFA TCT. Prices start at £23,110 for the 1.6 JTDM-2 with 105bhp and rise to £26,660 for the 2.0-litre 170bhp JTDm-2 up with the TCT transmission. If petrol is more your thin you can choose the 170bhp version of the 1,4-litre MultiAir for £23,670.
