Efficient TwinAir engine is now available on the Alfa Romeo MiTo

Alfa Romeo has expanded the MiTo range, with the addition of Fiat's award-winning TwinAir engine.

The twin-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine produces 85bhp and is capable of returning 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 98g/km. This means that it's free to tax and is exempt from the London Congestion Charge.

In addition to the new engine, the MiTo TwinAir is offered with an Ametista Black paint option, which features a metallic purple tint.

The entry-level MiTo TwinAir Sprint starts from £14,150, and includes stop-start, 16-inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth as standard. For a £1,200 premium, Distinctive trim adds larger wheels, sporty detailing and rear parking sensors.

The Alfa Romeo MiTo TwinAir is on sale now, and is available with a free five-year warranty for private buyers until September.
