Is the MiTo reliable?

Is the MiTo reliable?

In our 2016 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, the MiTo finished 145th out of 150 cars for reliability, so it’s hard to draw many positives. In recent years, Alfa has climbed up the overall ranking, but it’s still a concern that it was ranked 23rd out of 32 manufacturers for reliability in the 2016 edition.

What is the Alfa MiTo based on?

The Mito is based on sister company Fiat’s Punto, but as is often the case with Alfa’s cars, the key to its appeal is how it looks. From the classic grille to the offset number plate, this is a car that could hardly be more distinctive, while the various bits of chrome detailing make it look really smart.

Who designed the MiTo?

Centro Stile Alfa Romeo
The Alfa Romeo MiTo (Type 955) is a front-wheel drive, three-door supermini designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo and presented in 2008 at Castello Sforzesco in Milan with an international introduction at the British Motor Show in 2008.

Is a Mito a good first car?

The Alfa Romeo Mito is a reasonably good first car despite some shortcomings: Good fuel economy – averages 40 UK mpg (33 US mpg) for the 0.9L petrol engine, and 60 UK mpg (50 US mpg) for the 1.3L diesel; these are real-world mpg figures. Mediocre build quality – poor-fitting trim inside and out; not on par with rivals.

Why did Alfa Romeo stop making the Mito?

Hot Alfa Romeo models are coming: In an interview with Autocar, Roberta Zerbi announced plans to phase out the MiTo at the beginning of 2019 as a consequence of weak demand for three-door models in Europe where more and more people are going with the additional practicality provided by five-door cars.

Is an Alfa Romeo MiTo a Fiat Punto?

Technically it is based on the third generation Fiat Punto, launched in 2005 and still on sale, but from the design point of view it is the first Alfa to follow the shapes of the famous 8C Competizione.

What engine does the MiTo have?

The Alfa Romeo Mito engines range from an 875cc two-cylinder to two 1.4-litre turbocharged fours and a 1.3-litre turbodiesel. The range centres around a pair of 1.4-litre TB Multiair petrol engines.

Is a MiTo a Punto?

The idea of the MiTo is reasonable from the point of view of sharing production costs with its cousin, the Punto. But if Alfa wants to become a referent of sportiness and luxury, certainly those values are more common in larger segments.

How did Alfa Romeo get its name?

By 1915, the factory changes its name to ALFA short for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili which means Lombardian Car Factory and the last name of the entrepreneur Nicola Romeo, who took control of the company.
