Recently introduced on the European markets, starring on the Frankfurt catwalk will be the new MY 2014 with which the MiTo revamps its technological image while maintaining its consolidated image as a sporty compact capable of winning over motorists who demand care for details, Italian style and technical excellence for total safety driving style.
The 2014 range today features five trim levels (Impression, Progression, Distinctive, Superbike and Quadrifoglio Verde), ten body colours, including the new Anthracite Grey. Contrasting top and mirror dome colour available. The outstanding customisation level of the MiTo is reasserted once again with ten different alloy wheel patterns.
The range of engines has also been expanded. They are all efficient, reliable and eco-friendly.
2 turbodiesel engines - 85 HP 1.3 JTDM (updated in E5+) and the 120 HP 1.6 JTDM - and 5 petrol engines: the brand-new 105 HP 0.9 Turbo TwinAir making its debut on the MiTo, 70 HP 1.4, 78 HP 1.4, 135 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol (with manual gearbox or Alfa TCT) and the 170 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol. New drivers can choose between the 70 HP 1.4 and the 78 HP 1.4 petrol engines or the 85 HP 1.3 JTDM diesel version
The 2014 range introduces some important new style features, starting from the new redesigned grille completed by a chrome-plated frame to create a family feeling with the Giulietta, making the front of the car look more streamlined. Other new features are the Anthracite Grey body colour and the burnished finish of the front light clusters that characterise all trim levels.
The interiors are even more sophisticated, now with four new upholstery combinations to choose from: two new Evoluzione fabrics (Black/Titanium or Black/Red) for Distinctive, the QV Sportiva pack with a new sporty seat and white inserts (available for Distinctive only) and the new Heritage Black fabric with electrically welded Alfa Romeo badge for the Quadrifoglio Verde.
Innovations also in the dashboard portfolio: Street with specific black version for Impression, Progression and QV Sportiva; and Evoluzione - two dashboard designs, both shaded (grey-black or black-red) for Distinctive.
The most important innovations of the MY 2014 include the new 105 HP0.9 Turbo TwinAir engine with its outstanding brilliant temperament and its low fuel consumption. Combined with a six-speed manual gearbox and with the DNA selector in Dynamic position, the engine delivers 105 HP (72 kW) at 5500 rpm and a peak torque of 145 Nm at 2000 rpm (ratings are 105 HP@5750 rpm and 120 Nm@1750 rpm, respectively, in Natural mode).
Furthermore, the 105 HP TwinAir is the best expression of eco-friendliness, as confirmed by its CO2 emissions, which are among the lowest in its class: 4.2 litres/100 km and 99 g/km on the type-approval combined cycle, respectively. Remarkably, emissions are so low that comply with the European standards of 2020 already today. In other words, the 105 HP TwinAir Turbo is comfortable, cost-effective, eco-friendly and never boring when it comes to performance: it clocks a top speed of 184 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in only 11.4 seconds, in addition to having a remarkable specific power of 120 HP/litre, which ranks it among the sportiest of engines.
The new TwinAir family engine combines the concept of downsizing (displacement and weight reduction) with sophisticated technologies, like supercharging with high-efficiency turbocharger, integration of the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head and the totally new MultiAir intake valve control system. With its unique intake cam profile, the MultiAir second generation further optimises thermodynamic efficiency of the engine by modulating the amount of exhaust gas recirculated in the combustion chamber (internal EGR).
The multimedia device based on Uconnect, the next-generation infotainment platform concept, is debuting on MiTo MY 2014 to reconfirm the technology ambassador spirit that characterised the car's first steps.
Available with or without integrated navigation system developed with TomTom, the device features a 5" colour touchscreen for accessing many functions, the radio and the multimedia devices (mediaplayer, iPod, iPhone, smartphone) connectable via USB and the Aux-in connector. The system also includes an advanced Bluetooth interface to access extra functions, such as phone call management or reading received SMS text messages via text-to-speech technology, innovative Audio Streaming system that reproduces music files and web radio stations directly from a smartphone in streaming on the UConnect device. By choosing the version with integrated navigation you have the opportunity to enjoy additional new features: in addition to the built-in navigation developed in collaboration with TomTom® (with voice recognition), the system will be equipped with GPS system, IQ Routes® (which calculates the best route based on the real average speeds measured on the roads) and Infotraffic system with real time updates.
