How much does the Alfa Romeo Mito cost to run?

The 1.2L diesel is the most economical Alfa Romeo Mito to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Alfa Romeo Mito 1.2L diesel is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A.

It does almost 81 MPG on average, which means it will cost £8.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Peugeot 208 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Vauxhall Corsa 1.2L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 11, which is lower than the Vauxhall Corsa 1.2L diesel, but higher than the Skoda Fabia 1.2L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Ford KA+ has the lowest insurance group.)

Alfa Romeo Mito: How big is the boot?

The Alfa Romeo Mito has an above average boot space (270 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Skoda Fabia estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 515 litres.

Is the Alfa Romeo Mito easy to park?

The Alfa Romeo Mito is very middle of the road - it fills just under three quarters of a space. There are lots of wider cars, but just as many that are narrower and feel easier to park. For example, the Hyundai I10.

When it comes to parking on the street, the Mito is one of the hardest. It has a turning circle of 11m, and a length of 4063m, giving you a relatively small 737mm gap to turn the car in and out.

If you don’t have a drive, you should look at the best in class for parallel parking instead, the Smart Forfour.

Which Alfa Romeo Mito has the best performance?

The fastest Alfa Romeo Mito from 0-60, is the 1.4L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 250 lbs/ft torque and 170 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 7.3 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the MINI Hatchback 1.6L petrol, which will beat your Alfa Romeo Mito to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
