Alfa Romeo today officially unveiled the 2009 MiTo . The car will be launched in all major markets in July.
The engines available at launch will be the 155 bhp 1.4 Turbopetrol, 120 bhp 1.6 JTDM and an aspirated 1.4 engine of limited power (78 bhp) for those who have recently passed their tests. Each with different qualities, all utilised to the full due to pairing with 6 speed manual gearboxes that are individually remarkable for their generosity and lively temperament and also for their high performance and sophisticated technology.
In particular, the 120 bhp 1.6 JTDM is the best engine in its category in terms of specific power (it can achieve a mighty torque of 320 Nm at just 1750 rpm), while also boasting 80% lower particulate emissions and 20% lower CO2 emissions than previous generation power units. In the same way, the top of the range car in terms of power – the 155 bhp 1.4 turbopetrol – offers extraordinary performance for this capacity (top speed of 215 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.0 seconds) with a 30% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions compared to cars of the previous generation.
