Alfa Romeo has launched the MiTo Live, a new limited edition of 250, that combines safety and technology with a passion for music.
Yes, you read that right – the current trend is for manufacturers to promote their in-car communication abilities and in this case it’s the music.
The Alfa Romeo Mito comes fitted with a high fidelity BOSE sound system and Pioneer’s innovative AppRadio system which lets users connect and access their smartphone’s apps through a seven-inch multi-touch screen.
Leaving this aside, the Alfa Romeo Mito is a seriously decent car.
The Alfa Romeo Mito has achieved a 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating and is powered by the multi-award-winning TwinAir Turbo petrol engine which combines impressive fuel economy with low (98g/km) CO2 emissions.
The Alfa Romeo Mito Live is aimed at 17-25 year old drivers and has an insurance group 9 rating though potential buyers may be interested to know that there is an option of Marmalade telematics based cover, potentially reducing insurance premiums by up to 50%.
Unlike many ‘black box’ policies, Marmalade’s advanced telematics-based insurance starts drivers on a lower premium with no curfews, no penalties and no extra charges for driving at night.
Online feedback allows drivers to review their journeys at any time and there are e-learning modules for developing safer driving skills. The cover also means drivers can start building a No Claims Bonus immediately.
Young drivers with no ‘high risk’ journeys at the end of their first year with Marmalade could see their premium decrease by up to 30% in the second year.
The Alfa Romeo Mito Live is priced from £16,590 OTR with extras including stylish alloy wheels and rear tinted windows.
There are some competitive financing packages available to buy one but for those who are seriously thinking of buying one should check the competitive leasing packages for the Alfa Romeo Mito Live first.
