2012 Alfa Romeo Mito Quadrifoglio Verde 1.4L

The Alfa Romeo MiTo (known internally as the type 955) is a three door sporty supermini officially introduced on June 19, 2008, at Castello Sforzesco in Milan,[6] with an international introduction at the British Motor Show in 2008. The car was available in all Alfa’s major markets in stages from July. The three-door hatchback is front-wheel drive and will be sold to compete with the MINI and the newer Audi A1. Designed by Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, the design is believed to be inspired by the 8C Competizione.

The MiTo is built on Fiat Small platform used on Fiat Grande Punto, also employed by the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa D.

“MiTo” is an abbreviation of the cities Milano (Milan) and Torino (Turin), because it was designed in the former and was to be assembled in the latter; the name is also a play on the Italian word “mito”, meaning “myth” or “legend”

Video Review:

MiTo ushers in a new era for petrol engines: it is the first car in the world to be powered by engines with the revolutionary MultiAir technology. The 1.4 Turbo MultiAir was in fact awarded the prestigious “International Best New Engine of the Year” award at the 2010 edition of the International Engine of the Year competition. The MultiAir engine versions of the 1.4 Turbo 170 bhp (125 kW) and 1.4 Turbo 135 bhp (99 kW), are all equipped with Start&Stop and Gear Shift Indicator as standard and they guarantee:

  • Better performance
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Lower CO2 emissions
  • Instant and dynamic fuel management

The Alfa Romeo MiTo has been awarded a prestigious five-star Euro NCAP rating: among A-class, the MiTo is best in class for passive safety in the adult Euro NCAP ranking. The Alfa Romeo MiTo is pure entertainment and maximum safety.

The following are standard on all engine versions:

  • 7 airbags
  • SBR (Seat Belt Reminder) technology: 5 icons displayed on a small screen inform the driver whether the seat belts of all the passengers are securely fastened
  • Anti-whiplash devices on seats
  • Double pretensioners on front seat belts
  • Collapsible steering wheel
  • Steering column designed to absorb impact energy in a controlled manner
  • LED rear lights to improve the visibility of the vehicle

Braking system

The Alfa Romeo MiTo hydraulic, power-assisted braking system comprises two crossover, independent circuits and has proven to be particularly effective to allow quick and progressive braking, with shorter stopping distances.

ABS with EBD

In addition to a braking system affording excellent performance levels, the Alfa Romeo MiTo is equipped with the ABS anti-lock braking system, one of the most sophisticated currently available. The ABS incorporates EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution), which distributes the braking action over four wheels, in order to stop the wheels locking and ensuring complete vehicle control in all conditions.

Electronic Q2

The Alfa Romeo MiTo is fitted with the new Electronic Q2 system which by reproducing the effect of a self-locking differential, guarantees excellent cornering behaviour thus making the car safer and more enjoyable during a sporty drive or in poor road grip conditions.

VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control)

Alfa Romeo’s interpretation of ESP (Electronic Stability Program), VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) is a system that intervenes in conditions approaching the limit, when vehicle stability is at risk, and assists the driver in controlling the car.

A sporty device, in the spirit of all true Alfa Romeo cars, featuring excellent road holding qualities, the VDC grants the driver total freedom to master the vehicle in normal conditions and only intervenes immediately prior to the situation becoming critical.

ASR (Anti Slip Regulation)

The ASR (Anti Slip Regulation) system is an integral part of the VDC and it optimises traction at any speed, with the help of the brakes and engine control.

HBA and Hill-holder

The Alfa Romeo MiTo range is completed by the HBA system, the hydraulic brake assistance device that automatically increases brake circuit pressure under emergency braking situations. And the Hill-holder system which, for a hill start, maintains the braking action for a few seconds after the brake has been released, thus facilitating setting off and avoiding the car moving backwards.

MSR (Motor Slip Regulation)

MSR is a system to prevent the engine locking during over-run that gradually adapts engine braking action to the driving situation.

CBC (Cornering Brake Control)

The CBC (Cornering Brake Control) system is activated when the car goes round a bend while braking. In this case, the braking pressure is discharged individually onto each wheel in order to maintain vehicle stability, minimising any understeer or oversteer.

DST (Dynamic Steering Torque)

This function integrates the electric steering into the operation of VDC. This active electronic steering system improves both driving safety and handling performance. In all driving conditions, the electronic steering suggests the correct manoeuvres for the driver to perform, allowing excellent grip performance and providing a great sense of safety.
