What is it?
The Alfa Romeo Mito has been around since 2008 now, with a few updates along the way, and this is the most recently tweaked iteration.
It’s received cosmetic and kit updates and more power for the two-cylinder TwinAir model. The turbocharged 875cc engine previously put out 85bhp but now it produces 103bhp - although torque remains at 107lb ft. The extra power helps cut the 0-62mph time from 12.5sec to a more tolerable 11.4sec.
Emissions have increased by a negligible 1g/km of CO2, but it still qualifies for free tax thanks to its overall 99g/km rating, and the average mpg figure is unchanged at 67.3mpg.
Alfa has revised the available trim levels too; the range now comprises Sprint, Distinctive, Sportiva and Quadrifoglio Verde.
We tested the Sportiva model which comes with 18-inch alloys, cruise control, parking sensors, air-con and a five-inch touchscreen media system with Bluetooth, USB and aux-in connectivity.
