The company plans to replace the hatchback on a SUV.
Compact hatchback Alfa Romeo MiTo in the new generation will turn into a crossover. On the opportunity on the sidelines of the Geneva motor show hinted Sergio Marchionne, the head of the concern FCA, which owns Alfa Romeo.
MiTo went on sale in 2008. Since then several times renewed. However, it still sold poorly. This hatchback built on the Fiat Small platform, which, by the way, in his time was established models such as the Fiat Grande Punto and Opel Corsa D (at the time, Fiat had a partnership with GM).
In the line of its engines include petrol and diesel units. Transmission – five-speed and six-speed manual gearbox and six-speed “automatic”.
“If there is MiTo the future, I don’t think it will retain the body in the form of a two-door hatchback. Market two-door hatchbacks In the segment is steadily declining. We must follow the requirements of the market,” said Marchionne.
Head of Alfa Romeo RAID of Bigland thinks MiTo is a very good machine, but it is not on the same “level”, and that Giulia and Stelvio.
In the line of Alfa Romeo there is only one crossover – the Stelvio. The Italians plan to make some more new models, since the SUV market is actively developing and growing. Apparently, the crossover will turn and Alfa Romeo MiTo.
