2010 Alfa Romeo Mito Sport


Italians are a smooth, glamorous race, who love their cars as fondly as they do their Roman heritage. It’s no surprise that the very spunky looking Alfa Romeo Mito Sport is as fabulous to drive as it is to look at.
The Alfa Romeo Mito Sports is desirable enough for its looks alone.

The Mito Sport has the up rated 1.4 litre petrol engine which is a sparkling performer. An incredible thought to consider is how the 1368cc engine can hurtle the curvaceous little Mito down the road at over 210 km/h. Alfa’s are great cars to drive, and the 0-100 km/h sprint time of eight seconds for the new Alfa Romeo Mito Sport is quite sensational. Seated in very figure hugging front seats the view of the road ahead is good. Start the engine, and the twin tip exhaust note is lively in its tone. A maximum of 114 kW are reached at 5000 rpm and the little Mito Sport pulls very well throughout the engine’s range, particularly when boasting 230 Nm of twist at 3000 rpm. This puts the mid-range passing ability of the Alfa Romeo Mito Sport in the top section of its class. Nothing short of a sensational driving experience can be expected. All you’ve got to do is park yourself inside one and experience the Mito Sport for yourself.

Power is fed to the front wheels, and in typical Alfa fashion, the handling is awesome. The Alfa Romeo Mito Sport has an excellent rack and pinion steering-set up that offers lightning fast turning response. Sitting on a chassis that has Mac-Pherson Independent suspension, a transverse trailing arm, taut shock absorbers with rebound springs and an Anti Roll bar at the front that keeps the front sharp and responsive on any given road surface. Tracking at the rear, the wheels are attached to a rear suspension that has a torsion beam with a C cross-section and high torsional stiffness, slotted bushings with variable stiffness, high-stiffness helical springs and contractive vertical shock absorbers. The result is an outstanding chassis that is capable of hurtling the Mito Sport across the ground at lightening quick speeds – such is the high level of control and grip.

Brembo brakes haul the Mito Sport back to slower speeds very quickly, and when emergency stops are required the ABS brakes with ASR and EBD respond instantly for safe controlled emergency braking. Each Mito Sport comes with superior safety options. You will find two stage driver and passenger airbags, front side airbags, curtain Airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, engine immobiliser, VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) with a hill holding feature, ABS brakes with ASR and EBD, DNA, a Q2 Electronic Differential, traction control, front seatbelts with load limiters and pretensioning capability, and rear parking sensors.

Italian design is at its best inside their magnificent automobiles. The sexy interior is wonderful to look at, feel and be enveloped in. Features offered onboard the Alfa Romeo Mito Sport are top class. You will enjoy a great sound with or without the six-speaker audio system being switched on and in full swing. Leg room is quite reasonable for a small car. And you will find plenty of ingenious storage compartments scattered throughout the cabin. The Alfa Romeo Mito Sport is equipped with Bluetooth hands –free communications and USB connectivity. Add the optional leather upholstery and you have yourself a very distinguished set of wheels that is capable of upsetting owners who drive much more powerful cars.

The five leafed clover alloys, low slung body and wide on road stance should be enough to capture your attention; however a drive of the sprightly Alfa Romeo Mito Sport will definitely be the clincher. A remarkable performer that is superbly equipped and sensationally good looking inside and out. So, drive the awesome Alfa Romeo Mito Sport today – and you better be in quick because there is a load of interest in this one!
