Unfortunately there are many vehicles that we don’t get to enjoy here in the states. But if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to pilot European-only vehicles, Regular Car Reviews occasionally comes through in a pinch. Recently, he drove a certain Alfa Romeo that has surely grabbed our curiosity at one point or another: the MiTo.
During a recent stint in the United Kingdom, Mr. Regular gave fans back home a quick take of this regular car that one would see overseas. His synopsis on a 2012 Alfa Romeo MiTo is that it’s rather disappointing, for multiple reasons uncharacteristic of the hailed Italian brand. His verdict of the Italian supermini can be summed up as follows:
The Alfa Romeo MiTo isn’t a Fiesta. It isn’t an Abarth. What is the Alfa Romeo MiTo? Style and maybe a turbo.
See, the MiTo was expected to have the same fun DNA as other Alfas, like the Giulia or the 4C, but it just doesn’t. Yes, the MiTo has the D.N.A. drive mode system; it just doesn’t have the same figurative DNA. Just go on and click play to see what we mean.
