Starting off with the entry-level 78Hp 1.4, according to Alfa, this particular version was created to satisfy a new Italian law introduced for those who have recently passed their driving test that limits the specific power over tare ratio for drivers who have recently passed their driving test to 67Hp per ton. This law was originally intended to enter into force in July 2008, but this has now been postponed to January 2009.
The Mi.To 1.4 can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 12.3 sec and on to a top speed of 165 km/h or 102mph. Its average consumption is 5.9 lt /100km or 40 mpg (US). We hope for Alfa’s sake and tradition, that this version will stay put in
