Based on the same platform as the Opel Corsa D and Fiat Grande Punto, the hatch has been on sale since 2008.
According to Autocar, Alfa Romeo's Europe Chief, Roberta Zerbi, said that “people are choosing more and more five-door cars”, and the “MiTo is a three-door”, making it not relevant in today's market.
Unfortunately, the car will not be replaced by a newer version. Instead, a new small crossover will be launched to hopefully capture a wider market. The unnamed crossover is expected to arrive in 2020.
