2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo

2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo
Alfa Mi.To is the first car created since the 8C Competizione, Alfa Romeo's icon of style and technology, and it borrows some of the latter's characteristic traits: the particular shape of the side glazing outlined by ‘open' unframed windows, the three-lobed motif that distinguishes the front bumper, the shape of the headlights and the LED tail lights. In addition, the interiors are the ultimate expression of 'made in Italy' style, a driver and passenger compartment which is welcoming yet sporty, with top-quality materials and the closest attention to detail. The greatest thought has also gone into defining the measurements and the result is a compact and dynamic shape: the Alfa Mi.To is 4.06 metres long, 1.44 metres high and 1.72 metres wide.2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo
Furthermore, great performances are guaranteed by a choice of 4 engines, all turbocharged (petrol and diesel), that currently range from 90 hp to 155 hp, and the range is due to be developed further with even higher power ratings. Performance and handling have been studied and optimised to provide maximum driving pleasure in complete safety. Alfa Mi.To, in fact, offers true Alfa Romeo sporting ride, featuring contractive suspensions - standard on all specifications and engines - that considerably reduce roll; and maximum active, passive and preventive safety, as is demonstrated by the standard VDC stability system and a vehicle structure that is already designed to obtain the top EuroNCAP rating in the future.

2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo
With the Mi.To, Alfa Romeo wishes to offer a new generation of ‘Alfisti' THE SPORTIEST MINI.

An up-to-date and innovative car, a name redolent of history.
The name MiTo has great evocative resonance for Alfa Romeo for it was chosen to mark the deep-seated link between the past and future of the brand: between Milan, the city of design that brought to the car's style into being, and Turin, which will be responsible for its industrial production A decision that highlights the brand's strong desire to consolidate its Milanese roots.
The site deliberately chosen for the car's presentation was the fairytale Castello Sforzesco in Milan where it is said that nearly 100 years ago a young designer found the inspiration for the Alfa Romeo logo when he saw a serpent carved onto the Filarete tower.

Alfa draws on its roots to launch itself into the future 2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo
Going back through Alfa Romeo's epic history means turning some of the most important pages of motoring history.

It means remembering the cars, races and engines that become milestones of technological progress and the sporting events of the 20th century. Yet the Alfa Romeo story is about so much more than just steel and track, there is also a human component, essentially based on the skill of great technicians and engineers such as Merosi, Jano and Satta Puliga the meticulous creativity of designers such as Prof. Scarnati and the architect Cressoni, and also the experience of all the people on the shop floor.

These people successfully transferred the thrills that Alfa brought to racing to the roads of every day.
The best spirit of Alfa Romeo is beautifully encapsulated in this statement by Orazio Satta Puliga (1910-1974), one of the brand's great designers: ‘Alfa Romeo is not just a car factory: its cars are something more than automobiles built in a conventional manner. Enthusiasm for a means of transport is a kind of disease. It is a way of life, a very special way of seeing a motor vehicle. Something that defies definition. Its elements are like those irrational traits of the human spirit that cannot be explained by logic'.

Today Alfa's cars are determined to carry on ‘being Alfa' - and the MiTo's driving qualities, style and engineering make it the perfect vessel to convey these values to a new generation of 'Alfisti'

Alfa MiTo: all the Alfa values in compact form

2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo
The Alfa 8C is the technical and stylistic mould for all our cars in the future. The Alfa 8C represents all that is good about the Alfa spirit and has been an essential source of inspiration for the construction of the Alfa Romeo MiTo.
The MiTo is a distillate of pure Alfa Romeo values and came about as a result of a will to give every Alfa Romeo, however compact, a specific attitude of its own made up of sensual style, agility and technical excellence – all with the ultimate goal of driving satisfaction.
The MiTo packs all the Alfa Romeo values into 4 metres.
For young people, it represents a chance to gain access their first sports car that is safe with its own distinctive style and technical content.

Its dynamic attributes, good fuel economy and low emissions and petite dimensions also make the car an attractive proposition for a more adult audience, within a motoring scenario that now seems to set a premium on downsizing.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo is a form of baptism into the Alfa religion for a new generation of Alfisti, opening up horizons of sportiness to the female audience that is essential to the success of any car of this category.
The car offers an outstanding weight-to-power ratio, absolute manageability due to cutting-edged suspension systems and direct steering, all features present for the first time on a car of this category.
Lastly, the MiTo, like any Alfa Romeo, is a distillate of state-of-the-art engineering including very special features such as the Alfa D.N.A. system, suspension with coilover springs, Q2 Electronic and DST, all available as standard – coupled with small yet powerful turbo engines.
