The Alfa Romeo MiTo has received a range of revisions for the 2014 model year, including a new interior, new colours, more equipment and a new TwinAir engine.
The 0.9-litre TwinAir two-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit has had its power output increased to 105hp, and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 11.4 seconds with a top speed of 114 mph.
It can return 67.3mpg on the combined cycle, but emits just 99 g/km of CO2, placing it in VED Band A with a £0 road tax bill.
Externally, the 2014 Alfa MiTo receives a new chromed front grille, titanium grey headlights and tail-light surrounds, tinted rear windows and a revised rear bumper.
A new colour – Matte Magnesio Grey – is also now available.
Inside, there’s a new dashboard layout, upgraded plastics, and a new Uconnect five-inch touch-screen media system incorporating Bluetooth connectivity, USB and Aux ports, steering wheel controls, and the option of satellite navigation.
The model line-up has also been revised, and now incorporates just four grades: Sprint, Distinctive, Sportiva and Quadrifoglio Verde (QV).
All models feature stop/start, air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, front fog lights, rear spoiler and alloy wheels.
Distinctive models add 17-inch alloys, cruise control, rear parking sensors, and a front centre armrest.
Sportiva adds 18-inch QV alloy wheels, a QV steering wheel and handbrake lever, satin exterior trim and special badging.
The range-topping QV adds red-painted four-piston Brembo brake calipers, SDC active suspension, bespoke sports seats, uprated upholstery and QV wing badges.
The addition of TwinAir brings the engine line-up to five, with a 1.4-litre MultiAir in 135hp and 170hp forms, a 1.3-litre diesel with 85hp and a 1.6-litre diesel with 120hp.
Alfa’s TCT twin-clutch transmission is available as an option on the 135hp MultiAir engine.
Prices start at £14,350 for the TwinAir Sprint and rise to £18,995 for the 170hp QV.
