It's not the first time we're saying this, but the Alfa Romeo MiTo needs a second generation. However, so far only designers have been coming up with proposals for a new hatchback.
One such example is the one created by Theophilus Chin, who used features from both the ongoing Giulietta and the new Mazda2 to render a potential second-generation Alfa Romeo MiTo.

The result is what you see above and in the photo gallery, and we feel obliged to add that we hope Alfa Romeo sees these manipulated pictures and takes them into consideration. That is if they haven't already decided on how the new MiTo will look like.

In the designer's vision, the new MiTo will be a five-door hatchback, with the rear doors handles hidden near the C-pillar, just like Seat used to do for the previous-generation Leon.

We'd also like to add it's not the first time designers took their time to imbue a potential new MiTo with design cues inspired by newer models. For example, someone rewarded the MiTo with a new face, taken from the stunning Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Now, this does not mean we're criticizing the current looks of the MiTo, but do take into consideration the fact that the supermini was launched back in 2008. That's seven years ago, in case you're too in a hurry to do the math.

So far, Alfa Romeo has been keeping the MiTo boat floating with special editions, like the MiTo Racer we showed you earlier this year. But while the hatchback surely got the looks, it's the engine compartment we feel Alfa should work on improving.

I mean, lowered suspension and 17-inch multispoke alloy wheels should be backed up by engines more powerful than an 85-horsepower 1.3-liter mill or a 120-horsepower 1.6-liter plant accompanied by a 1.4-liter running on LPG. What do you think?
