Im in Italy at the moment on my hols, and yesterday drove past an Alfa dealer and noticed they had a couple of Mito's in. Went in and had a mooch, and the dealer offered me a test drive! It was a top of the range 1.4 petrol turbo 155BHP. It was very nice. Felt very taught, and the doors were extremely solid feeling and heavy. The bloke was messing with the DNA whilst I was driving and I could really feel the difference.
The cabin is a very nice place to be, the graphics on the dials are great, and as you turn it on you get a picture of a Mito coming towards you on the computer display :lol:

It does look better in the flesh and the room in the back is ok (the gf was sat in the back). Had quite a bit of oomph though I only drove it for about 6 or 7 miles and it was raining so couldn't test out the handling, though felt very planted.
The dealer said it had received plenty of interest throughout Italy.

:cool:

Thanks for the review, PR :)

I have to admit, I will reserve judgement until I have actually seen one "in the flesh", as I remain unconvinced by the publicity photos :( .

Still, if it's good to drive and well built, it has to be good news :thumbs:

Good to hear it looks better in the flesh. Hopefully the lower spec ones will be equally good.
