Alfa Romeo MiTo TwinAir (2012): 30 second review

Peter Burgess
Alfa Romeo MiTo TwinAir
A characterful engine gives the Alfa Romeo MiTo serious charm and considerable driver appeal.
We like:
Fun to drive, sporty Alfa interior, much improved over original MiTo.
We don't like:
Disappointing economy, noise can get tiring.
Should I buy one?
On paper the fuel economy looks amazing but in reality it isn't. On paper the performance looks mediocre and in reality it isn't either.
We really liked the MiTo TwinAir. Both car and engine have character, and if you are prepared to engage positively, there's much fun to be had. It gives positive messages about its build quality too, though Which? says that Alfa reliability and its dealers are still below average.
Rating
