New Sportiva trim level adds plenty of extra equipment, and is on sale now

The Alfa Romeo MiTo and Giulietta ranges have expanded to include a new Sportiva trim level, which adds more kit for a reduced cost.

Based on the Distinctive trim, the MiTo Sportiva adds £1,500-worth of options for a £750 premium over the regular car. Along with Sportiva badging, the MiTo gets a set of 18-inch alloys, while on the inside, Alfa has added black accents to the steering wheel and handbrake to compliment black Alcantara sports seats.

The larger Giulietta hatch gets 18-inch alloys and red Brembo brake calipers, plus sports leather upholstery. Alfa Romeo claims that the additions offer £3,000-worth of upgrades for the cost of £1,860.

The Alfa MiTo Sportiva is available with three engine options: the 85bhp TwinAir, at £16,100; the 1.4-litre 135bhp MultiAir for £17,000 and the 120bhp 1.6-litre diesel at £17,750.

The Alfa Giulietta Sportiva is available with a choice of six engines, starting at £23,110 for the 105bhp 1.6-litre diesel.
