£13K buys new-look Alfa Romeo Mito

Family look and an more efficient diesel feature in facelift.

Alfa Romeo has put the facelifted version of its Mito supermini on sale.

The car boasts subtle styling changes, an uprated engine option and a revised grade structure, at prices starting from £12,960.

New grilles, a dark finish to the headlamp surrounds, changes to the rear bumper and a revised alloy wheel design bring the Mito into the latest Alfa Romeo family look that launched with the larger Giulia. A white exterior finish is also now an option.

Inside the seat upholstery has been upgraded, the brand’s Uconnect Live infotainment systems added and the finish on the centre console, dashboard and door trims changed.

The new 1.3-litre JTDM-2 diesel engine produces 95hp with CO2 emissions cut to 89g/km, an increase of 10hp yet combined with a 6g/km emissions improvement.

Other engine choices include a 1.4 petrol of 78hp, the three-cylnder TwinAir turbo petrol with 875cc and 105hp, and the 1.4 MultiAir petrol which offers 140hp and is available in the new range-topping Speciale. This has replaced Quadrifoglio Verde in the Mito line-up, leading some industry observers to speculate that a more potent version might join the range later.

The range now stretches across Mito, which replaces Progression, Super (from £16,360) and Speciale (from £17,110). Standard equipment on entry-level models includes new 16-inch alloy wheels, satin chrome-effect exterior detailing on the grille surrounds, headlamp and tail lamp surrounds, air conditioning, the Alfa DNA driving mode selector, a rear spoiler and a Uconnect five-inch touchscreen infotainment system with DAB and Bluetooth connectivity.
