It looks good (from some angles) and it sounds cool to say you drive an Alfa Romeo. It makes more sense than older Alfa Romeos in that the latest Fiat engines are frugal, powerful and reliable.
The cabin seems claustrophobic with limited rear leg room. The boot is difficult to load because of the high lipped rear. Visibility is poor because of the 'bubble' shape. But very high specifications can make it nice for the driver.
The 1.3 JTD is the most popular company car choice, which means used car buyers should avoid it. High mileages and equally high prices are likely. The 1.6 JTD prices, however, are already looking soft. It's only the insurance that may put you off.
The 1.4 petrol manages a brilliant 51 mpg (1.3 JTD is 67) and so unless you do a lot of miles you won't feel any great pain at the fuel pump. But servicing will be cheaper as it gets older, plus they are cheaper and the mileages lower.
If buying nearly new, then you should be aiming for under £13,000 and less than 6,000 miles on the clock. 1 year old cars, with 6,000 - 10,000 miles on the clock will be around £10,000 - £11,000. We expect 3 year old cars to be worth around £8,500.
The Mito has not really made it out of the controlled pricing environment of main dealer forecourts yet, so we recommend either driving a hard bargain and getting a good 10%+ off or waiting until the car is over 2 to see how bad the depreciation gets.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Alfa Romeo Mito you would aim to buy a 3 year old and sell it before it is 4 years old.
Diesel Alfa Romeo Mito cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Alfa Romeo Mito cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Alfa Romeo Mito cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
