It may be the smallest Alfa offered, but the MiTo packs a lot of the spirit of the company’s halo car, the 8C Competizione, into a compact but shapely package. “MiTo,” incidentally, is named after the two Italian cities that played a role in its design and production: Milan, where the car was styled by the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo studio; and Turin (Torino in Italian), where the Mirafiori plant is located. The bold LED taillights and expressive face of the MiTo make it clear this puppy wants to mix it up a bit and have fun. The MiTo not only wears Alfa’s corporate shield well, it also does the marque’s illustrious history of sporting cars justice by coaxing 153 horsepower out of a 1.4-liter engine through the use of a turbocharger. It provides a nice fat torque curve, so no waiting around while the turbo spools up to unleash its full potential. Paired with Alfa’s sport suspension know-how, the MiTo is a supermini that’s a lot of fun to sling around.
