Alfa Romeo MiToTue, 18 Mar 2008 00:00:00 -0700
This is Alfa Romeo's latest compact car, the MiTo. The new car draws its name from the abbreviations of two Italian cities: Milan, the city that brought the car's style into being, and Turin, which will be responsible for its industrial production.
The first new Alfa Romeo to be built since the 8C Competizione, the MiTo borrows many characteristic element from its larger 'halo' sibling: the shape of the frameless side windows, the distinctive frontal treatment, the shape of the headlights and the LED tail lights. The contemporary design is 4060mm long, 1440mm high and 1720mm wide.
Inside, a highly 'personal' dashboard and seats are said to ensure the 'ultimate expression of Italian style' for the interior. It is claimed to be welcoming yet sporty, with top-quality materials and close attention to detail; all wrapped in a compact and dynamic shape.
The new car is expected to be available in European markets by July this year.
