Re: Irish Jury verdict on new Mito??

Look better on TV than in most of the pics probally a bit too small tho

Also 149 is going to be a 5 Dr only so i'm not over the moon on that as a replacement for the 147 either


I guess it will have to be an 8C

Dave,

I bet you will drive both though when out " just to see " what they are both like.

5Door I bet won't worry you either when you see the finished 149 in the flesh, and hopefully the engine's will be worth waiting for

I think it's a cool car but I do fit the demographic perfectly that they are aiming the car at. It does look well but like all Alfas you have to see em in real life to really know if it works. But I am sure they will

Re: Irish Jury verdict on new Mito??

Depends, I presume your looking at one of the diesel options so it shouldn't be too bad

Might be one of the new twin turbo petrol engines, 1.4 with 155bhp .................

Current CO2 on 1.6 TS is 194gm, new engine should be much less than this if the guys at Fiat Powertrain are doing their jobs

In a year or two the Bravo T-Jet sport will be a cracking second hand bargain.

Re: Irish Jury verdict on new Mito??

Don't like what I've seen of it. It looks bloated. I'm sure (I hope) in the flesh it'll be nicer. I'm sure I'll pop into the local Alfa dealer for a looksee and maybe even a test drive
