Alfa MiTo with MultiAir Priced at 17,400 Euros

Fiat's revolutionary technology MultiAir that cuts CO2 emissions and fuel consumption but, at the same time, increases power output, will add 600 euros over the base price tag of Alfa MiTo, the company announced today. This means in Italy, the MiTo with MultiAir will be priced at 17,400 euros, but prices will be slightly different across European markets. Germany, France and Italy will get the new MiTo this month while the rest of Europe will receive it in October.

The MultiAir technology is a major achievement for the Italian manufacturer as the system is capable of cutting the emissions but also boost the power level in small displacements engines. The 1.4-liter MiTo for instance comes with a 20 percent power boost if equipped with MultiAir while cutting CO2 emissions by around 10 percent, Autonews wrote.

Power is up 20.8 percent to 145 horsepower from 120 hp while CO2 output is reduced from 145 g/km to 129 g/km. Fuel consumption goes down from 6.1 l/100km to 5.6 l/100km, which is about 8.2 percent.

“We expect the MultiAir to be a technological breakthrough for gasoline engines that rivals what the common-rail did for diesels,” Alfa Romeo CEO Dario Cravero said.

According to official figures, turbocharged united fitted with MultiAir can achieve up to 25 percent fuel economy over naturally aspired engines with the same level of performance. Together with the internal exhaust gas recirculation system, CO2 emissions are reduced by 40 to 60 percent.
