In the case of the Alfa Romeo MiTo Collezione, standard equipment includes 17-inch ‘Collezione Bronze’ alloy wheels with matching bronze-effect door mirrors and satin-effect headlight and rearlight surrounds. The Giulietta Exclusive trim level comprises of signature gloss-black painted roof with matching door mirrors, front and rear parking sensors and unique, dark-finish, 18-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.
The interior of the MiTo Collezione is trimmed in special Collezione cloth and eco-leather upholstery, with brown stitching on the flat-bottom steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake gaiter. A split-folding, three-seat rear bench, sports dials, special Collezione vintage floor mats and a Uconnect NAV infotainment system with TomTom satellite navigation and DAB radio round out the extremely high specification. For the Giulietta, the interior is decked in bespoke ‘Collezione’ leather seats with front seats heating and a 6.5-inch Uconnect NAV system.
Offered with a choice of a 0.9-liter TwinAir Turbo 105hp or 1.4-liter Turbo Petrol 140hp engines, the MiTo range offers entry to mid-range options for diverse enthusiasts. The 1.4-liter MiTo is paired with six-speed ALFA TCT twin-clutch transmission and uprated Brembo brakes, as standard. The Giulietta is offered in either the 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol 170hp or 2.0 JTDM-2 TCT 175hp or 2.0 JTDM-2 diesel 150 hp; the engines are paired to either a six-speed manual or six-speed Alfa TCT twin-clutch transmission

The Sprint Speciale adds sports suspension, 17-inch sports alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, aluminium pedals and Quadrifoglio-style sports seats as standard, along with dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, special silver dashboard trim, the ‘Visibility Pack’ and cruise control.
