For The Mito looks stunning, has some fine engines and should hang on to its value well. All versions come with a five-year warranty, too.
Against It neither rides nor handles with the panache you’d expect of a premium supermini. Rear legroom is tight, rear visibility is poor and refinement isn’t great.
What Car? says
The Alfa Romeo Mito is a classic case of style over substance. It impresses in some areas, but has far too many weaknesses to compete with the Audi A1 or Mini.

There are 11 Alfa Romeo Mito versions available
Target Price team says:
The Mito line-up includes a wide range of engines and trim levels. However, the most powerful petrol and diesel engines aren’t available in the more basic trims, making these versions look very expensive.
A 0.9-litre two-cylinder Twinair petrol is the cheapest engine, but the stronger Multiair units are much better; they respond keenly and are impressively fuel efficient. The diesels are economical if noisy.
Entry-level Sprint trim has the basics, including alloy wheels, air-con, Bluetooth and a USB socket, but it isn't available with our favourite engine. We'd go for Distinctive trim, which adds larger wheels, rear parking sensors, cruise control and various aesthetic add-ons.
