Alfa Romeo confirmed the two-cylinder MiTo TwinAir will make its debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The MiTo, in fact, comes with two new engines. One is the award winning TwinAir engine developed by Fiat Powertrain, developing 85 bhp at 5,500 rpm and torque of 145Nm at 2,000 rpm and famous for its great driving fun, and thanks to the Start&Stop device, 98 g/km CO2. The other is the a new 1.3 JTDM 85bhp.
It has the same output as the TwinAir, but thanks to a variable geometry turbocharger, a new variable displacement oil pump and alternator with “smart charge”, the 1.3 JTDm produces just 90 g/km of CO2 emissions in the mixed cycle.
Besides these eco models, Alfa also shows the new Quadrifoglio Verde MiTo at IAA, equipped with the powerful 170 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo and “Alfa Active Suspension”, offering three different dynamic control settings of the “Alfa DNA” device (“Dynamic”, “Natural” and “All Weather”).
