(from Alfa Romeo Press Release) 2015 Alfa Romeo MiTo Junior

The Alfa Romeo brand, sports essence and a young vibe: these are the features that made the "baby" Giulia GT 1300 Junior a success ever since its launch in 1966. Better known simply as the 1300 GT Junior, the model was to become one of the biggest commercial successes for Alfa Romeo in the sports segment.

Today, the sport-oriented DNA of that legendary coup├ę lives again in the MiTo Junior, a brilliant entry-level model designed to make the Alfa Romeo world of grit, agility and sheer fun accessible for younger buyers.

Exterior

On the outside, the new MiTo Junior emphasizes its sporting soul with a few distinctive features such as the new 17" alloy wheels with white treatment, the sports rear bumper and the chrome-plated exhaust tailpipe. Unmistakably identified by the "Junior" tailgate sticker, the new version also offers special, white-finish door mirror fairings, colour-matched with the wheels and an elegant Satin Chrome treatment for the door handles and front and rear light frames.

Interior

True to its positioning as the "sportiest compact car ever", the new MiTo Junior stands out for its unique white stitching set against the sports fabric seats, the new shaped steering wheel design, the special mats with the "Junior" logo and the gear and brake lever leather boots. Equipped with a black-coloured Street dashboard, the MiTo Junior has a special sports instrument panel with white graphics.

Equipment

Styled to express its sports nature, and with an outstanding on-road performance setting the standard in its category, the new MiTo Junior comes equipped with a standard dual-zone automatic climate control system, tinted windows, fog lights, cruise control, seats with lumbar adjustment, leather wheel with radio/phone controls and spoiler (configuration available for the French market). .

Additionally, the new MiTo Junior features the best equipment currently available in terms of infotainment: a UconnectTM 5'' Radio system, including a 5" colour Touchscreen, Bluetooth® pre-setting with voice controls and MP3 Media Player with USB and AUX-in, SMS reader, audio streaming and steering wheel controls; it is also pre-set for the installation of a top-class BOSE Hi-Fi sound system (with 8 speakers and subwoofer).

Engines and transmissions

New MiTo Junior purchasers can choose from a wide range of engine versions - all efficient, reliable and eco-friendly. Among them are the 105 HP 0.9 Turbo TwinAir, with its lively performance - 105 HP (72 kW) delivery at 5,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 145 Nm at 2,000 rpm - and reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. All this without ever compromising on performance: top speed of 184 km/h and 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in just 11.4 seconds.

For high-performance enthusiasts, there's the new 140 HP 1.4 Turbo Petrol MultiAir with Alfa TCT automatic transmission, delivering a stunning 209 km/h top speed with 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 8.1 seconds. All this with reduced emissions and fuel consumption: 5.4 l/100km and 124 g/km CO2 respectively, in the combined cycle.

Newly licensed drivers also have the option to choose between a 78 HP 1.4 petrol version and an 85 HP 1.3 JTDM Turbodiesel version. The latter power unit, in particular, delivers a top power of 85 HP at 3,500 rpm and a torque of 200 Nm from just 1,500 rpm, and can reach a top speed of 174 km/h and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 12.9 seconds. One of the second-generation MultiJet engines, the 1.3 JTDm version only produces 90 g/km CO2 emissions in the mixed cycle.
