At the heart of the MiTo are engines that combine gutsiness with efficient running costs.
3 engines for newly licensed drivers: 70 and 78 HP petrol or 85 HP JTDm engine. The new 105 HP Euro 6 Turbo TwinAir engine. Turbo engines for those seeking unadulterated racing spirit: 140 HP MultiAir and 120 HP JTDm diesel. Also an LPG dual-fuel that brooks no compromise on Alfa spirit.
To keep fuel consumption and emissions low, the MiTo has another device on board.
• Start & Stop: this device, which automatically stops and starts the car when at a standstill in traffic, is constantly active, but can also be deactivated by the driver.
• Gear Shift Indicator - GSI: this system suggests when to change to the gear best suited to optimise power unit efficiency by turning on a light on the control panel.
Starting from aspirated, lower displacement engines boasting brilliant performance and feistiness for new drivers, Alfa Romeo is offering the most technologically advanced range of petrol engines for the category:
105 HP Euro 6 0.9 Turbo TwinAir. An extremely versatile revolutionary engine which offers the choice of lively performance or low emissions depending on the driving style.
The last word in automotive engineering in terms of technology, performance and eco-friendliness, as demonstrated by its winning the prestigious Best New Engine 2011 award. It is a combination of MultiAir technology and specific fluid dynamics optimised to achieve maximum fuel efficiency: power, outstanding flexibility and response when you need them. The lowest CO2 emissions on petrol engines in the category are reached also thanks to the interaction with Alfa DNA and use of the Start&Stop device.
This technology heralds a new era for petrol engines, controlling the intake of air into the engine directly as it enters the cylinders, based on the actual engine requirements.
From 10% to 35% more maximum power and up to 15% more torque at low speeds.
Pick-up improved by up to 12% and up to 10% lower fuel consumption and emissions.

Lift the bonnet and the MiTo reveals the second generation of JTDm diesel engines, a development of the Common Rail system.
Combustion is optimised to obtain excellent results in terms of consumption, emissions, noise and handling.
Extreme reliability borne out by service intervals of 35,000 km.
An LPG with 120 HP of real power. This dual-fuel engine is agile, reliable and gutsy, installed and guaranteed by Alfa Romeo.
It drastically reduces nitrogen and carbon dioxide emissions.
The car can go everywhere, even where traffic restrictions apply.
Offers more than 1,200 km total range (petrol and LPG).
The 1.4 Turbo bi-fuel petrol and LPG engine ensures the same torque, power and reliability characteristics as the petrol engine, and combines reduced running and maintenance costs with polluting emissions lower than the equivalent petrol version.
Fuel supply to the engine, achieved using a sequential Multipoint system, makes switching from petrol to LPG imperceptible and immediate. The engine is first supplied with petrol and then automatically switches over to LPG, while performance in terms of acceleration and engine response remains unvaried.
The special switch on the central tunnel provides you the freedom to choose the type of fuel to run on. Two tanks guarantee a range of 1200 km. The engine is automatically fed with petrol when the gas reserve runs out.
