Alfa Romeo MiTo details:
Bearing the Alfa Romeo Mito Quadrifoglio Verde is the vehicle with the most comprehensive 170 hp Multiair motor and high-tech solutions that accentuate the existing qualities of the model: hold, agility, active security and driveability are heightened by an motor with one of the highest specific performance values in the world and a chassis with features hitherto unthinkable for a vehicle in this class.
This engine's best option is its impressive weight/power ratio, which has always been one of the key factors behind Alfa Romeo's success on the road and the racetrack. The class-leading ratio of 6. 7 kg/hp is almost 10 per cent better than the already impressive performance of the current 155 hp 1. 4 Tbi. At 124 hp/litre, this motor is also one of the world leaders in specific performance. In fact, this is the highest value ever recorded for an Alfa vehicle, affirming the impressive engineering heritage of the Alfa Romeo Mito.
This is a particularly hight-priority value because it proves the effectiveness of downsizing, aimed at producing innovative engines to get better performance allied with sharp reductions in fuel consumption and emissions. Indeed, it is this latter space which offers the most surprising evidence of the technical level achieved: 4. 8 l/100 km and 139 g/km of CO2 (in the extra-urban cycle) are closer to what you would expect from an economy vehicle than a compact sports vehicle that goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 7 seconds.
