The Alfa Romeo Mito is available to buy from today.
While the range may be missing the hottest Mito GTA (with a rumoured 230bhp), you can still pick up a 1.4-litre turbo that gives 155bhp. Hardly the stuff of hot hatch fantasies, but it still gives 134mph and 0-60mph in 8.0 seconds.
Based on the Fiat Grande Punto platform, the MiTo represents the cheapest way to get yourself a new Alfa Romeo. While the Grande Punto might form the starting point for the mechanicals, the bodywork is all Alfa and borrows some of the design cues from the V8-powered sublime 8C Competizione.
There are three trim levels available – Turismo, Veloce and Lusso. Prices range from £11,528 up to £14,661.
