The MiTo ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ is identified by a sporty look featuring a rear spoiler, a sports bumper with extractor beside the new burnished finish for mirror fairings, front grille, door handles, front and rear headlight frames and 17" alloy wheels with red brake calipers. The new matt Magnesio Grey body colour exclusively created for the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde enhances this sports compact’s aggressive design and highlights the ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ logo located under the side direction indicator.
The black interior respects the exterior style and at the same time features a long series of developments which underline this model’s most sporty and dynamic spirit. This is highlighted by the new moulded leather steering wheel with contrasting white stitching, the new instruments with QV logo, the Competizione dashboard with ‘carbon look’ finish and the new special mats. Inside, black leather is used to cover the parking brake lever (with white stitching), the gearbox knob and the gearbox boot (with white and green stitching).
The engine is the heart and at the same time the true strength of every Alfa Romeo model. And the new MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde is no exception. In terms of sports design and strong personality, the car introduces the new 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol engine which, in combination with the 6-speed transmission featuring the next generation ‘Alfa TCT’ double dry clutch, develops 170 HP at 5500 rpm at the maximum power speed and a maximum torque of 230 Nm at 2500 rpm (it increases to 250 Nm at 2500 rpm in Sport mode).
The pièce de résistance of this engine version is its outstanding weight/power ratio, which has always been one of the key factors behind the success of Alfa Romeo cars on the road and the race track.
A desire to be ahead of its time is encoded in the DNA of the Alfa Romeo MiTo and is confirmed by the new engine: after being the first car to offer the revolutionary MultiAir engine, it is now the first car in Italy to offer the next-generation Alfa "TCT" automatic transmission matched with the 135 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engine (awarded Best New Engine of the Year 2011 by an international panel of experts) and Start&Stop system.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo’s most sporty model offers excellent performance. It reaches a top speed of 219 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 7.3 seconds with reduced emissions and fuel consumption. In the combined cycle, these values are respectively 5.4 l/100 km and 124 g/km of CO2 emissions. With respect to the previous Quadrifoglio Verde, both CO2 emissions (-11%) and fuel consumption (-10%) are improved.
The spoiler and sports rear bumper, the twin chrome exhaust tail pipes, the 17" alloy wheels with burnished finish, the external ‘Quadrifoglio Verde’ logo, the gearbox boot with double white and green stitching, the parking brake lever with white intersecting stitching, the door-handle burnished finish and front and rear light clusters frames come as standard.
Moreover, the MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde, Model Year 2014, offers the new Uconnect system with 5" colour touchscreenas standard and is also available with a navigation system by Tom Tom.
