Alfa Romeo MiTo Turismo Sport launched

The Alfa Romeo MiTo Turismo Sport

The Alfa Romeo MiTo Turismo SportAlfa Romeo has launched a limited edition MiTo – the Alfa MiTo Turismo Sport – with cosmetic tweaks, choice of paint jobs and a half decent finance offer.Don’t get barkingly excited, this isn’t a barn-storming MiTo in the mould of the much anticipated – but not yet materialised – MiTo GTA. It is in fact a Limited Edition Alfa MiTo based on the MiTo Turismo with £1,610 worth of extras bolted on and available with a petrol or oil burning engine.

The extras over the MiTo Turismo spec – which already includes stuff like AirCon and Alfa’s DNA – include 16″ alloys, Cruise, Spoiler, Blue & Me and multi-function wheel.

On the engine choice you can have either the 1.4 16V 95bhp petrol or the 1.3 JTDM-295bhp MultiJet turbodiesel (the oil burner is the better bet) at £12,895 for the petrol and £14,410 for the diesel. Default colour scheme is Black but you can opt for Biancospino White or the new Alfa Metallic Red.

Alf aren’t just pushing the lump of extras on top of the standard Turismo spec the Sport offers, they’re making a big deal of their finance offer. You can have either car for £1,000 down, 47 payments and a balloon at the end. The petrol MiTo Turismo Sport will then cost you £199 a month and the diesel £219.
