Alfa Romeo MiTo Takes a TwinAir and Goes to Germany


Alfa Romeo has announced that they are bringing another car for debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The TwinAir engine is getting quite a bit of press recently, as Fiat's nouveau motor is coming off of its big win as the "International Engine of the Year for 2011." The Italian car company isn't wasting anytime throwing their new motor in as many models in their stable of manufacturers as possible and the Alfa Romeo MiTo is the latest to receive the apparatus. The MiTo will run a 2-cylinder TwinAir engine that puts out 85hp and 107lb-ft of torque.

The car also features start-stop technology and can sprint from 0-62mph in 12.5 seconds. A 1.3 JTDm diesel engine will also be available. The diesel can put out 85hp and 148lb-ft of torque. Performance numbers are pretty similar to the TwinAir, as it gets from 0-60mph in 12.9 seconds. The Alfa Romeo MiTo will arrive at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show in September with the TwinAir engine. The MiTo joins Alfa Romeo's 4C Concept for their debuts in Germany.
