159 or Mito - advice please!
Looking to trade in my Astra sport hatch for an Alfa at long last! Torn between the Mito and the 159. I know they are quite different animals but just wondering which is the better car and a more 'true' alfa experience! My budget will be about 12K so looking at a 1/3 yr old example.
Seen a 159 Ti that looks mean - the interior looks so comfortable. My partner has two small children so it would be the more practical option. I live down a small lane with a small amount of parking - so that is where my interest in the mito (and exterior styling) is based! If I go for a Mito it would be a veloce and could afford a slightly lower mileage/newer car. I also think if I go for the 159 it would be Diesel and if it was the Mito then a petrol. I about 150-200 miles a week.
I see the running costs/servicing is quite reasonable on the 159
Any comments or advice greatly appreciated - and also any pointers as to what to look out for when buying! Thanks
