Went through today with Scott1s and my lady wife for a look. What a cracking little car. As suspected, it looks a lot better in the metal than in the various magazine photos. It's well built, well packaged nad is built using well chosen materials - it should sell by the shedload.

Some pics below of the car, which was Etna Black (I think). I tried to pick up the effect of the reddish flakes in the paint - hope it comes out here when posted.

Incidently, the two pics from the front, I think, show why in some photos the car can look a bit dodgy.

Pics are a bit contrasty because of the location in the showroom. Sorry about that but there was nowt I could do.

lol, seriously though, if I was Joe Bloggs on the street and saw that I wouldn't know what that means.

That is some swanky paint though, would like to see it in the flesh.

The MiTo logo was actually chosen by us Joe Publics in a website vote - I like it! ......How does it compare size-wise - Is it smaller than a 147? Heard its supposed to rival the Mini so is it a lot smaller?

Great pics Fraser - better than some of the press rubbish we've seen.

What were you shooting with - not a camera phone i bet !

But you're not Joe Public, you're as Alfa person, so the logo was chosen by people who were looking for details of the Mito I presume, so they knew what it was. TBH it's almost as bad as the 2012 logo.

Grande Punto's parts bin has been well plundered for that interior me thinks.

Good colour for it....helps to lose that black plastic overkill to the lower bumper and that woeful tailpipe/rear light cluster relationship. Flared rear wheel arches seem to accentuate the need for bigger rubber.

Would certainly be interested in the higher spec derivatives....but only if they outdo the Abarth Grunde Punto equivalents.
