Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4 T Sport 2009
The 147 had been Alfa Romeo’s entry level model since its debut in 2000, but the 3-door hatchback MiTo took over this role in the lower B-segment from 2008.
The “Mi” of MiTo stands for Milan, a place with close ties to Alfa Romeo and where the company’s design studios are located. “To” refers to the first two letters of Torino, the center of the Italian automotive industry and production. And “MiTo” as its own words, means “Myth” or “Legend” in Italian.
