new alfa mi to says me too to mini

Alfa's new compact car– the MI.To– is the real deal. After months of spy pictures, an ill-fated naming contest (in which Alfa rejected the name "Furiosa" chosen by voting fans) and copious amounts of internet speculation, we've finally got official shots of the new car that's being hyped as the first credible MINI fighter (other than the FIAT 500, selling in a class below the MINI). The stunning small car will holster engines drawn from the usual Alfa-Fiat family range, from 90 to 155 horsepower gas and diesel variants. Rumor says the MI.To is based– at least somewhat– on the Fiat Grande Punto, with major league revisions to the suspension, NVH, sheetmetal, and interior. Alfa puts the car on sale in July to celebrate Chevy Volt prototype testing. Just kidding. Obviously.

    I love the MPG of the Mini and the driving dynamics. I would love to have those same qualities in a sexier package.

    One more thing though...Petrol engines up to 230HP instead of 155, from a 1.8 Turbo engine yet to be launched this year in the new Lancia Delta.

    I would love to have those same qualities in a sexier package. Agreed. Not to mention an interior that wouldn't make grown men cry and epileptics have a seizure.
