  16. Isofix Top Tether Point

    Alfa MiTo
    I've just bought a 1.4TB Distinctive (135) Mito on a 12 plate, due to pick it up later this week. The one thing I didn't look for was the Isofix top tether point. Does the Mito has top tether points on the back of the rear seats or on the floor of the boot ? Thanks Steve
