The Alfa Romeo MiTo is getting a new entry-level model – the MiTo Progression – and the retro-inspired MiTo Junior with 0.9 litre TwinAir.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo has been with us for six years or more, and despite a bit of a refresh in 2014 it’s not exactly the most current car you can buy. Although we still like it.
To try and kick a bit of life in to MiTo sales, Alfa has come up with a couple of new models – an entry level MiTo Progression and a MiTo Junior, inspired by Alfa’s 1966 GT 1300 Junior.
Despite being the new entry point for the MiTo range – and starting at just £12,670 – the MiTo Progression comes complete with Air Con, leather steering wheel and gear knob, Alfa’ Uconnect with 5″ touchscreen and Bluetooth, Dynamic Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, 15″ alloys, rear spoiler and titanium grey for the headlight and tail light surrounds.
The entry price of £12,670 buys you a MiTo Progression with the 1.4 litre 78bhp petrol engine with stop-start, but you can also opt for the 0.9 litre TwinAir 105bhp petrol Turbo for £13,770 or the 1.3 litre JDTM 85bhp diesel for £14,315.
Also on offer is the new MiTo Junior, a ‘sporty’ new MiTo model that adds to the Progression spec with 17″ white alloys, white mirrors, Fogs, satin effect exterior trim, sports back bumper and ‘Junior’ upholstery.
Inspired by the Alfa GT 1300 Junior (a small-engined Alfa GT from the 1960s, built to beat the tax on bigger engines) the MiTo Junior comes with the 0.9 litre TwinAir for £14,870 (or you can have the 1.3 diesel instead for £15,415).
Both the Alfa MiTo Progression and MiTo Junior are now on sale at Alfa Romeo’s UK dealers.
