Alfa Romeo is preparing to launch the new compact MiTo in the UK. In case you missed the car’s appearance at the British International Motor Show, Alfa dealers will begin receiving MiTo’s next month for display purposes ahead of the car’s official launch on January 24.

Drawing many design aspects from the beautiful 8C Competizione sports car, the MiTo plans to go head to head with key competitors in its highly competitive segment. Helping to give it the upper hand is a special electronic system called DNA, which adjusts the car’s performance depending on driving style and conditions.

Entry level MiTo’s equipped with a 1.4 liter 95 bhp engine will start at £10,975. For potential owners concerned about resale value, industry expects at CAP believe the Alfa MiTo 1.3 JTDM Veloce will retain 47% of its value after 3 years and 60,000 miles. UK orders will begin to be accepted on November 1, so if the MiTo appeals to the Alfa fan in you head to your local dealer.
