The Alfa Romeo MiTo has been around for several years now, but the 2011 MiTo represents nothing less than a drastic change in the public's perceptions of the Alfa Romeo brand. The company has needed and desired this change for several decades, and the new, luxury MiTo should give both Alfa Romeo and the Italian economy positive growth. New models like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta owe their existence to this tiny car. It has greatly influenced many other Alfa Romeo models, and the 2011 version should continue that trend. And, the 2011 Alfa Romeo MiTo Coupe is extremely affordable as far as family-friendly luxury cars are concerned. With a price range in the mid-$20,000s to low $30,000s, the MiTo is a formidable rival to other mini luxury vehicles, such as BMW's MINI Cooper. It has always been the case that those who lusted after an expensive Ferrari but didn't have the funds have looked pointedly in the direction of Alfa Romeo as an affordable alternative, and the 2011 Alfa Romeo MiTo Coupe certainly doesn't disappoint.
Alfa Romeos have always appealed to our wanderlust desires, that's one of the things that has made them even more coveted vehicles. Take an Alfa Romeo Montreal, for example, which was produced between 1970 and 1977. Has any \"normal\" automobile looked so exotic yet frustrated buyers on so many levels? Truth be told though, the new 2011 MiTo seems to escape this not-so-flattering heritage. It combines the physical size of a supermini and an undeniable flair without looking forced or awkward in any way. In late 2009, a year and a half after the first MiTos appeared, new MultiAir engines, which offer extremely adjustable valve timing and more efficient combustion, appeared, and with them emerged a serious new attitude. These engines pushed the MiTo as a serious contender in the automotive market. After review, we can say that the MultiAir engine is perfectly suited to the tiny 2011 MiTo. Overall, our reviews show that the small, family-friendly 2011 Alfa Romeo MiTo Hatchback has just the right amount of equipment, and it is easy and fun to drive. Despite its small 1.4-litre petrol engine, it holds a reasonable 105bhp while still managing a combined 40 mpg. It's trendy, full of the latest technology, and a perfect choice for the fashion-conscious car buyer. In short, it's a great choice- whether you're making it with your heart or your head.
