The Alfa MiTo was the first car produced after the 8C Competizione - Alfa Romeo's icon of style and technology - from which it borrows some characteristic traits: the specific shape of the side windows delineated by flush glazing, a three-part "trilobo" motif that distinguishes the front bumpers, the shape of the headlights and the LED tail-lights. A distinctive personal touch has been added around the headlights and tail-lights: a frame featuring different forms of material processing and colours to create an ultra-stylish eye-liner effect that underscores the car's style and determination.
MiTo has been designed to be exclusively a three-door car, providing the stylists at Alfa Romeo Centro Stile with the freedom to endow the MiTo with a new level of style, both internally and externally.
Most obviously is the way the MiTo tappers behind the 'b' pillar to provide not a just coupe style, but also shoulders over the rear wheels akin to those on the Alfa 8C, that lead the eye to the safety of LED rear lights.
The shield-shaped grille is imposingly sited at the end of a sculpted V-shaped bonnet, flanked by teardrop headlamps. In profile, the high waistline, flared wheel arches, disguised B-pillar and minimal rear overhang combine to communicate power, performance and agility.
